BOULDER, Colo. – October 5, 2020 – REVEAL Global Media Conference, a growing series of events designed exclusively to connect brands and the media, will host the third event in the series on October 6 and 7, 2020.
At REVEAL Fall/Winter 2020, 39 influential brands spanning outdoor, active lifestyle, and cycling will be presenting their latest and most innovative products and initiatives, as well as discussing upcoming products and plans.
The REVEAL concept was established by ECHOS Communications in March 2020 and the first event was held in April in partnership with agencies OutsidePR and Exact Change. The second event in the series – REVEAL Moto – was held in July.
“REVEAL was designed for one purpose: to connect a curated group of brands with journalists in an uninterrupted environment. We’ve learned a lot since the first event in April, and have applied feedback from the media and presenting brands to continue to improve the presentations and flow with the goal of providing journalists with exactly what they want,” said Rob Reedy, Founder and CEO, ECHOS Communications. “Based on the momentum to date, we know the REVEAL model will continue to have relevance as a hybrid brand communications strategy.”

Gordon Wright, president of OutsidePR, said, “Since the cancellations of trade show and in-person activations, REVEAL has become the most effective way for brands and journalists to connect, so we’re grateful that the idea has taken off to such an extent.”
In addition to the brand presentations – which are exclusively available to the media – a public panel focused on sustainability and the supply chain will be live-streamed on October 6 at 2:30pm PST at: https://reveal.echoscomm.com/industry-panels-and-discussions/
