New Facility Opening Raises Visibility for Corporate Mission

Posted on Friday, July 6th, 2012

O’Reilly DePalma generated more than 58 million impressions for Danish pump manufacturer Grundfos and its new North American Water Utility Center. These impressive results, showcasing the Grundfos commitment to water use issues, were achieved through a media relations campaign and a series of special events including a news conference, facility tours, a VIP reception and ribbon cutting ceremony.

More than 130 guests joined an inauguration ceremony for the new center led by Denmark’s Minister for Trade and Investment; the Illinois Department of Commerce’s assistant director and Grundfos’ North America CEO and president.

Media highlights included coverage in The Chicago Tribune, Sacramento Bee, International Business Times, and World Pumps Magazine. Social sharing generated additional impressions via Facebook. The event received top mentions in trade outlets devoted to the water treatment & supply industry. Media materials from the event were also used the next day at a Congressional forum in Washington, D.C.

O'Reilly DePalma produces a launch event for Porcher Solutions at Grande Central Showroom in New York.

The Porcher brand had an opportunity to launch a smart new collection of smaller-sized luxury bathroom fixtures and furniture at the chic midtown Manhattan showroom of its channel partner, Grande Central Showrooms of New York.

Porcher worked with  O’Reilly DePalma to invite architects, designers and media attendance to the Grande Central Showroom at 56th Street. In collaboration with Wendy Silverstein & Associates, O’Reilly DePalma  managed the event planning, connecting the client to the right influencers in the New York design community.

Final attendance exceeded the expectations of the showroom and more than doubled the attendance success metric the client set as a goal.

Client quote:  “The attendance was not only great in quantity, but even better in quality.  They genuinely liked what they saw and had a good time.”
