South Yorkshire’s leading agency has been appointed to handle the PR and communications for one of the region’s most popular business events.

HR Media has added to its recent round of successes by being awarded the contact for the highly anticipated SheffEX 2 in December.

SheffEX was first held in June this year and attracted more than 1,500 people to Ponds Forge International Sports Centre for a unique, sell-out networking event.

Following the success of the inaugural event, which was also promoted by HR Media, SheffEX will now return to Ponds Forge on Monday 1 December.

Martin Ross, managing director at HR Media said: “We are delighted to be working with SheffEX once again after what proved to be an incredibly successful exhibition in June.

“Events such as SheffEX are a testimony to the growing and thriving nature of Sheffield’s economy and we look forward to seeing this develop for years to come.”

It follows on from the recent announcement of four new contract wins for HR Media, who have also been appointed by Age UK, Onyx Group Ltd and Kids ‘n’ Cancer, as well as Marco Pierre White’s new West Bar restaurant.

The Sheffield-based PR agency has also been nominated for two industry awards at the 2014 CIPR Yorkshire and Lincolnshire PRide Awards.
