Finn appointed Official PR & Communications Partner of the PPA Festival 2017

Finn has been appointed by the Professional Publishers Association (PPA) to provide PR and communications support for the PPA Festival 2017. Finn’s Media Practice, headed up by partner and director Matt Bourn, will provide specialist services for the industry event which takes place at London’s Tobacco Dock on May 10.

This year’s event is the biggest ever gathering for the UK’s professional publishing community, bringing together executives from across consumer magazines and business media. The Festival has a stellar speaker line-up from publishers including Time Inc UK, Hearst Magazines UK, Future and Dennis Publishing and brands such as The Week, Empire and The New European.

The appointment follows a string of new business wins for Finn’s Media Practice including fast-growth digital OOH media owner, 8 Outdoor and global executive search specialist, Grace Blue.

Barry McIlheney, CEO of the PPA, said: “This year the PPA Festival has a new home at the Tobacco Dock and is set to be our largest event to date. Our appointment of Finn as PR and communications partner will help us highlight the fantastic content and insights being showcased across six stages on May 10.”

Matt Bourn, Partner and Director, Finn, said: “The PPA Festival is a highlight of the year for the UK media and publishing industries. It provides the ideal platform for the sector to promote the strengths of magazine brands, discuss trends and share with advertisers how they are successfully evolving in an increasingly digital world.”
