Case Study – Media Relations Event
Case Study | Car Management | The Millerschin Group

Summary

Ten years ago, The Millerschin Group created an “informal” event for the media tied to a major industry forum, which continues to this day.

Results

  • Typically attended by approximately 20 trade and business journalists
  • Many media have joined us numerous times and say they look forward to the annual cruise

Project

Provide greater visibility for TMG clients when participating in the annual Management Briefing Seminars (MBS). TMG created a special event for the media using the schooner Manitou for a two-hour cruise on Grand Traverse Bay. This “informal” gathering is co-sponsored by TMG as well as clients and has become one of the highlights of MBS for the media.
