BREC's Media Pitch Week 2020

The BREC Communications department will host its annual Media Pitch Week for the 2021 Marketing Plan August 3-7, 2020.

What is Media Pitch Week:
Each July/August, the BREC Communications Department hosts Media Pitch Week in preparation for the next year’s marketing plan. BREC invites all media vendors in the region to pitch their advertising, marketing and public relations services to us. After the communications team has met with all media vendors, they immediately begin evaluating the various media vendors, analyzing budgets and writing the next year’s marketing plan. Once the plan is complete, the media vendors will be contacted to further the contracting process before the new year begins.
