To launch Etc. by BT Group we developed a two part communications plan, with the first six months focusing on building the brand and accompanying narrative strategy, generating advocacy among internal audiences.

Using CES 2023 as a launch moment, we launched an external communications campaign to announce the brand to an external audience, including national and international media.

We provided bespoke media opportunities at our suite in the main hall, announced a key investment in drone technologies and positioned the SLT as sector experts through video diaries and Thought Leadership content across the week.

Building on the momentum of CES, we hosted a media breakfast highlighting HealthTech innovations and drone solutions to top tier media including Bloomberg, The Times and The Daily Mail.
