Horizon Works appointed to deliver PR and content marketing support for EMN

25th April 2023

We’re delighted to announce that Horizon Works is now supporting Engineering and Manufacturing Network (EMN) with its public relations and content marketing activity.

EMN appointed us to help it promote its extensive events programme, membership benefits and its flagship EMCON event, which takes place on September 14 at Rainton Arena in Houghton-le-Spring.

We also supported EMN with PR and social media activity in the run up to its Engineers and Manufacturers Assemble event at Rainton Arena on April 21, which saw 124 EMN members and non-members learn about EMN’s plans for the future and enjoy breakfast and networking.

In addition, we have worked with the EMN team on renewing its core messaging.

Headquartered in County Durham, EMN is a long-standing cross-sector network which is dedicated to building and strengthening North East England’s engineering and manufacturing community.

EMN has a membership stretching across the region and is committed to supporting all the people who help organisations to function and succeed.

Its new events programme, which was announced at Engineers and Manufacturers Assemble, was created to help strengthen the network and provide knowledge and support for members.

As part of the programme, Horizon Works will be leading a regular Marketing Forum for EMN, which will see marketing, business development and sales staff from engineering and manufacturing companies meet to discuss challenges and opportunities, and share expert guidance and insight.

Horizon Works has a long association with EMN. We have been a member of the network for several years, have supported EMCON as a silver sponsor and in 2021, we joined its affiliate programme.

As an affiliate, Horizon Works has delivered a series of popular Marketing Lunch and Learn events at engineering and manufacturing facilities across the North East, including Komatsu UK, Gestamp Tallent Ltd, AkzoNobel and The Expanded Metal Company.

Samantha Vassallo, Managing Director of Horizon Works, said: “We are very excited to be working more closely with the EMN team and to be supporting them with PR and content marketing activity.

“We have greatly enjoyed building our relationship with EMN and its membership over the last few years. We’re able to draw from this insight – plus our long track record of marketing for businesses in the engineering and manufacturing sector – to promote the organisation’s membership offering and events.

“We are greatly looking forward to seeing the new events programme make a real impact for everyone across the engineering and manufacturing community, and we can’t wait to experience EMCON in its new home of Rainton Arena!”

Ailsa Anderson, Director of Development of EMN, said: “It’s fantastic to have Horizon Works on board as a marketing partner as we roll out our events programme and build up to EMCON 2023.

“We’ve enjoyed working with Samantha and the team in Horizon Works capacity as an EMN affiliate and look forward to developing this partnership even further his year.”
