About ISSA Show North America Virtual Experience [www.issashow.com]

The ISSA Show North America exhibition and conference brings together executives and leaders from all segments of the commercial and residential cleaning industries.

For 2020, the show will be hosted virtually. For more information, visit issashow.com.

Step 2

Research & Outreach

Media Relations

The pre-registered media list of journalists who plan to attend the ISSA Show North America Virtual Experience will be available beginning one month prior to the event. To request access to the pre-registered media list, please email the [email protected]

The pre-registered media list will include contact information for members of the press who have opted in to receive exhibitor news leading up to the event. We recommend that you research each media person on the press list before conducting any outreach to ensure you are providing them with news relevant to their specific beat or coverage area. We do not recommend sending group pitches or press releases to the entire list. 

Not all media attending the Virtual Experience will be pre-registered and we encourage you to cross-reference your current media list with the pre-registered list. If there are journalists not on our media list that you think should be, please provide the ISSA Show North America Team with their contact information. 

If you have a list of media contacts with whom you regularly communicate, you should send them an email pitch with information on products and announcements your company will launch during the Virtual Experience. In your pitch, explain how and why the product you’re launching is newsworthy, why their audience would want to know about it, how it differs from competitors and your company's Exhibit Directory Listing URL.

Step 3

Virtual Meetings

Press Briefings/Meetings

Once you have confirmed briefings with the press during the event, send them a calendar invite for the date and time of your briefing. You should also send a confirmation email to them two or three days leading up to the event. The confirmation email should include your exhibiting as name, exhibit directory listing URL, date, and time of your meeting, and your contact information in the event of a schedule change.

Allow at least 30 minutes for each media briefing and do not double-book. Briefings will give you an opportunity to provide the press with an in-depth review of your product and also determine what products or news interests them. Some press prefer 15-minute meetings instead of 30. At a well-attended show, there is a lot to see and everyone is very busy, so please be prepared for the press to show up late and for potential no-shows. 

Each person who is authorized to speak to the media on behalf of your company should be prepared for briefings, fully understand your company’s product, value proposition, history, and industry landscape. Founders and CEOs who are friendly, confident, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic will be the ideal spokespeople for media briefings. Develop talking points for your spokesperson and walk-through the talking points with them prior to the event so they understand what messages are important to convey.
