Polaris secures deal to promote major maritime conference in Poland
Ellesmere Port and Manchester-based PR firm Polaris, a specialist in the maritime sector, has been hired by the Gdynia Development Agency to promote the Maritime Economy Forum Gdynia
PR and marketing firm Polaris Media has secured a deal to promote one of Poland’s biggest maritime conferences, the Maritime Economy Forum Gdynia.
The Ellesmere Port and Manchester-based business, a specialist in the maritime sector, has been hired by the Gdynia Development Agency to aise awareness in international maritime press, much of which is written in English and produced in the UK as well as organise for a group of journalists to attend the conference.
Polaris’ managing director Ben Pinnington said the company helped promote the forum in 2018 and specialises in providing marketing services to maritime companies in the UK and overseas.
“It is a great honour to be working with the City of Gdynia and Maritime Economy Forum Gdynia 2019,” he said. “The event was very insightful and we had some strong headlines to report including a huge expansion in Poland’s offshore wind sector and the biggest ever programme of investments in the Port of Gdynia.
“The Polish maritime industry is flourishing employing 112,000 people and generating €9bn for the economy. It is a great time to focus on the Polish maritime sector as one of the key markets in Europe and the world.”
He added that Polaris has developed links with Poland since 2011: “We have worked for a range of Polish maritime businesses over the last few years including Intermarine in Gdynia and Baltec in Gdansk.
“We know how to help Polish maritime companies, raise awareness in the English language maritime press which is read worldwide and presents a brilliant platform for communication. We have also worked closely with them helping with business development in the UK.”
Elsewhere in September Polaris helped to promote one of the biggest maritime stories of the year with the royal ship naming of the RRS Sir David Attenborough polar ship at its client Cammell Laird by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
Polaris has provided a range of services to the three year shipbuilding project including media management, social media, speech writing, brochure design, film, photography and drone.
