As part of our media relations work, we have been involved in many large-scale public events in a multiplicity of roles, from operating the press access to full-scale event management. Our experience derives from the wide range of events held by BRMB and the Capital Radio Group, and since then it has evolved into a variety of forms from small scale presentations to large scale public events, such as:

Outdoor music events

We have a long history of involvement in outdoor music events. This began with the Party In The Park pop music concerts at multiple venues. More recently, we have overseen media relations at the Midlands Music Festival in Tamworth and brmb Live 2010 at the LG Arena, both large scale events featuring major artists and significant press interest.

The links below will take you to some of our articles about these music events:

G8 Summit

In 1998, Mike Owen Media was responsible for the management of 3,000 journalists attending the G8 Summit in Birmingham. This involved the securing of a large section of the Brindley Place area of Birmingham and providing complementary food and drink for journalists and international delegates attending the event. It was a massive logistical exercise described as a Birmingham City official as “A consummate entertaining of the most discriminating group of people in the world –international journalists – brilliant!”

During the Radio Festival’s sojourn in Birmingham, Mike Owen Media produced the UK’s major Radio event in 1997 and 2002 including the production of a major audio/visual presentation to celebrate 25 years of commercial radio in 1998.
