Boulder-based Momentum Media PR will host a series of virtual media events targeted at both core outdoor and broad-based media and influencers, kicking-off and rolling out for spring and summer 2020. Having successfully done so on behalf of clients for nearly two decades, Momentum is bringing new solutions to bridge the gap between brands and their media and consumer audiences. The first virtual media event is slated for early April  and will highlight national and global apparel and gear brands in an interactive format.  The event will draw media from across the country and multiple markets. 

An experiential event along with a virtual Outdoor Retailer sneak preview are slated for the week of June 15th; both will be broadcast nationally and open to exhibiting and non-exhibiting brands. Media is invited to attend to learn about current and future products from some of the most esteemed brands in the active lifestyle and outdoor space.

“We’re seeing an immediate and long-term need for a smart solution to bring the latest news to our media and influencer networks, in hubs like New York, LA and Denver, in an engaging and efficient way,” said Bethany Mousseau, PR Director for Momentum Media PR. “In keeping with our extensive experience curating and executing events that are both creative and strategic, we’re now connecting brands with media in this new virtual series to help them reach their existing and potential customer bases.”

Along with one-on-one and small group opt-in media meetings in Boulder and Denver, home to AIM Media’s Backpacker, Climbing, SKI, and the outdoor industry trade outlets SGB and  SNEWS, as well as Gear Junkie and a wide network of editors, freelance writers, and influencers contributing to hundreds of outlets and channels, Momentum will be partnering with other PR agencies and individual brands to bring product launches, news, and experiences to outdoor, active lifestyle, and mainstream consumer media nationwide.

“At a time when brands need extra support and new ways to reach media and consumers, we’re accelerating our media event schedule by hosting virtually as well as in person when and where possible,” said Alycia Cavadi, Momentum’s president and founder.  “To that end, we’ll be joining forces with like-minded and forward-thinking PR agencies and brands to offer even more stories and value. The early response has been tremendously positive. Our initial partners already onboard include Groundswell PR and Akimbo communications, and we appreciate the early conversations with BoldBrew and Sasquatch Media, with more to come.
