WHO WE ARE

WHO WE ARE

rAVe [Publications] is the leading news organization within the AV industry, and has been for 15 years. rAVe’s current sponsors know that and that’s why they keep coming back, year after year. The average rAVe sponsor has been working with us for over seven years!

Our goal is to provide the best and most creative outlets to promote the companies that support us.

Each opportunity, project and event adds something unique for the sponsor. If you have an idea, rAVe can help you come up with a creative way to share it.

OUR AUDIENCE

The primary target audience for most of rAVe’s publications is what we like to call “AV insiders,” or AV professionals who sell, design and install the products covered. We have nine publications, two websites and a new mobile app — all of which target “AV insiders.”

Our newest email newsletter and website, AVBuyers.club, helps AV end-users pick the right product for any application. So, we have every avenue to reach AV’ers and IT’ers covered.

rAVe’s news and analysis is distributed through channels such as:


email newsletters • blogs • articles • press releases • videos infographics •
podcasts • surveys • social media • promoted content

Banner ads appear in the same positions on all rAVePubs.com website pages including the rAVe homepage, individual article pages and industry resource pages, across all devices — desktop and mobile and, of course, ads rotate on refresh.

TRADE SHOWS



















rAVe trade show sponsorship gives your company and brand maximum exposure at trade shows. Partnering with rAVe integrates your brand with the exclusive rAVe NOW OnDemand coverage attendees at shows and following along at home have come to expect. Engage with show attendees, increase your brand’s presence on the show floor and target attendees when they are looking for solutions. And best of all, show sponsors received LEADS — some packages offer lead generation as well.

To give rAVe’s audience the best possible and easiest-to-find coverage, a separate MicroSite is created and dedicated to each trade show. Articles, blogs, product updates, press releases, social media, photographs and videos give readers the news as if they were there walking the show floor.

Sponsors are seamlessly integrated into the content rAVe publishes at events, receiving increased exposure through a number of promotional channels related to the show and on the content site. This content, including the integrated marketing content, remains up and available long after the last piece of truss has been taken down, so your messaging will continue to reach show audiences all year.
