How to Write an Event Press Release

The structure and content of a press release for an event typically follow specific guidelines to ensure clarity and impact:

Type of Event

The press release should specify the nature of the event, distinguishing between upcoming closed events, events that have already taken place, and open events intended to invite audiences through media outreach.

The 5 Ws

A crucial aspect of an event press release is addressing the ‘5 Ws’: Why, What, Where, When, and Who. This includes details about the event’s purpose (Why), the activities or features of the event (What), the location (Where), the timing (When), and the organizers as well as the target audience (Who).

Headline

Your headline should be attention-grabbing, incorporating strong, catchy phrasing and relevant keywords to ensure it stands out and is easily found in searches. It should include the event’s name and either its location or theme, but without revealing too many details upfront.

Timeliness and People Involved

Press releases for planned events should focus on timeliness and the people involved. It’s essential to clearly include all pertinent details like the event’s date, time, location, purpose, and any notable individuals or organizations involved. Including ticket or registration information can also be relevant.

Distribution

The press release should be distributed to relevant news outlets to reach the intended audience and maximize media coverage. This involves identifying and targeting media platforms and journalists who are most likely to be interested in the event based on its nature and audience. eReleases.com offers affordable press release distribution services to expand the reach of your press release to targeted journalists who are looking for announcements like yours.
