The Department for International Trade (DIT, formerly UKTI) required an external PR agency to raise awareness and promote the expertise of its regional teams throughout England in assisting first-time and established exporters in the start-up, scale-up and SME sectors.

To achieve this ambition, Vesey Communications established a national network of Regional PR Professionals (RPPs) with ‘on the ground’ experience and extensive media contacts to plug DIT into the bloodstream of regional, local and hyper local media.

Working in partnership with DIT regional directors and their colleagues and partner organisations, this network of RPPs continues to produce a constant stream of news releases, thought leadership and opinion columns and timely quotes on topical issues and breaking news – all of which help to achieve the DIT’s ambitions via sustained coverage in target print and online media titles nationwide.
