The Marketing and Communications plan is
strategically designed to create maximum
awareness among the Forum’s target audiences
and position the Forum as the “Must-Attend
Forum of 2012”. It will combine offline and online
communications tactics and integrate aspects
of traditional and social media networking,

WEBSITE – Used as a pivotal marketing tool,
this provides the key source of information
about the Forum and is constantly updated and
refreshed to reflect the latest news.

ASSOCIATION NEWSLETTERS – Sent via email and post.

DIRECT MARKETING – Monthly e-bulletins sent to members of OTA NSW will
include updates, and regular email blasts sent to past and current registered
delegates and speakers, that will provide updates on general information, latest news,
key dates, program and speaker details, keeping the target market engaged in
activities leading up to the Forum.

ASSISTANCE FROM ALLIED HEALTH ORGANISATIONS – Other membership associations and health organisations have been
engaged to promote the Forum via their websites, as well as newsletters and targeted email blasts to their members. This ensures that
the Forum program is promoted not just to members of OTA NSW, but also other health professionals who have an interest in the
Forum program topics.

MARKETING COLLATERAL – Branded electronic and printed materials are used to endorse the email campaign, highlighting key
activities such as registration promotions and ‘call for papers’. These will be shared via direct emails and the Forum website.

PROMOTIONAL ACTIVITIES – Planned for related events held leading up to the Forum. This includes promotion at professional
development events held nationally and at state level, through the distribution of marketing collateral and third party publicity. This
provides another access to the target market and the opportunity to keep the Forum ‘top of mind’.

ADVERTISING AND ARTICLES – Planned to appear in related journals and publications to promote highlights of the program and key
