Himmelrich PR, Good Thinking.

From Four Wheels to Two

After successfully working with the 2015 Motor Trend International Auto Show two weeks ago, we’re moving from four wheels to two. Our newest client is the Timonium Motorcycle Show coming to the Maryland State Fairgrounds in February. We are promoting the three-day event (featuring hundreds of cycles and lots of celebrity appearances and seminars) by pitching media, securing mentions and managing social media.

Vroom! Vroom!

Starting (Our Engines) in the New Year

This past weekend we rang in the New Year with 400 new cars, four days of TV, plenty of print media, and tens of thousands of visitors at the Motor Trend International Auto Show in Baltimore.

WBAL, WJZ, WBFF and WMAR previewed the show and highlighted the exotic cars on display. The Baltimore Sun, WKND, the Baltimore Business Journal and b. The Newspaper ran photos, articles, features and mentions of the show.

Starting off the year doing what we do best? Not bad.

That’s a Wrap!

Just in time for our holiday gift wrapping—we just wrapped up our fall season of consumer show promotion: seven events in five markets in the past three months. Total attendance for the shows increased over last year, with at least three recording record numbers of visitors. The media was present (get it?) with lots of TV segments, print stories, blog posts and online features. Happy shoppers and happy clients were a real gift to us.

Spreading (Our Client’s) Holiday Spirit

Our clients have a lot going on this holiday season—and that means we have a lot going too! Here are a few of the many ways some of our clients are spreading their holiday spirit:

Donna’s restaurant hosted a packed holiday cooking class last night—a sold out crowd of home chefs learning tips and tricks from chef Donna.

The Maryland Science Center will be suggesting great holiday gift ideas from their Science Store on WBFF this Saturday. The Science Center’s 12 Days of Science begins next week with daily holiday craft activities, experiments and demonstrations.

Over 300 artists at the Sugarloaf Crafts Festival will fill aisles and aisles with unique and interesting holiday gifts this weekend in Chantilly, VA. The Edward A. Myerberg Center will help holiday shoppers complete their gift lists at its holiday bazaar on Sunday.

Hundreds of people will collect and wrap gifts for local children at Business Volunteers Maryland’s annual Elf Nights next week.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…for our clients!

Downed Dominoes Made For Upped Attendance

Things fell into place at the Maryland Science Center’s Domino Day this past weekend—thousands gathered to watch over 15,000 dominoes tumble! Previews of the event on WBFF and WBAL and features in the Baltimore Sun and b the Newspaper helped draw a big crowd for the big topple.

Here’s the huge domino display (and the huge crowd!) just seconds before the dominoes came crashing down!
