On April 15th, our Social Media Manager Sabrina Iven explained the basics of social media work for companies in a webinar. Using many examples, she showed the 30 participants how to build up their social media presence successfully and ensure more followers, reach and interaction. She gave helpful tips from the selection of topics to monitoring and answered a wide range of questions.
Webinar was fully booked
The fully booked webinar attracted a wide audience. In addition to managing directors, marketing and PR managers of wind and solar companies, representatives of lighting and storage companies and journalists took part.
The engineers at the Princess Elisabeth research station in Antarctica installed five power controllers from my-PV at the end of March. With the Austrian company’s power managers, the research team will be able to use its surplus solar power in future to heat water, rooms and large buffer storage tanks. With the heat in the buffers, the scientists melt snow to produce drinking water.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our customers and partners for a successful year 2019 and wish you a Merry Christmas. We are already looking forward to realizing exciting projects with you again in 2020!
Until then, we will use the time to recharge our batteries and close our office from December 24th, 2019. On January 3rd, 2020 we will be back with all our energy for you!
Your Krampitz Communications team
On November 13, we visited Data Centre World in Frankfurt am Main. There, our customer Socomec introduced its new UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) solution MODULYS XL. We already announced this product presentation in the run-up to the trade fair by a press release and an invitation to the trade press. Journalists visiting the fair came to Socomec booth for background talks and interviews. We also sent a digital press kit to almost 30 interested journalists (including LANline, COM! professional and funkschau).READ MORE
On 30th September, PR consultant Thomas Blumenhoven held a workshop entitled “In Dialogue: How to Position Your Messages with Journalists and Respond to Negative Headlines” in the run-up of the 8th “Windstammtisch” by Hasewind. Blumenhoven initially gave all 13 participants an overview of the current problem of negative reporting on wind energy projects in the local press and its consequences for acceptance. All participants of the workshop had already had experience with “bad news” and polemic-communicating citizens’ initiatives. Their intention to visit the workshop was therefore to obtain clear instructions for a more proactive communication work.
Jointly developed communication measures
Under the moderation of Thomas Blumenhoven, the participants contributed their ideas for a professional public relations work on site with practice-oriented exercises. This included, among other things, the correct definition of target groups, the selection of interesting topics or appropriate content for statements and press releases. Blumenhoven supplemented the exercises with advice on how to get in touch with the local press, how to involve experts, and how best to prepare for an interview.
Afterwards we took part in the “Windstammtisch” event at the invitation of Gerhard Hinnah (see photo, copyright: Carolin Stangenberg). The participants used the event for networking and demanded from the politicians present clear improvements in the framework conditions for onshore wind energy.
On the 10th of September we visited this year’s HUSUM Wind. PR consultant Thomas Blumenhoven exchanged views with customers, held discussions about the current situation in the wind power industry and informed himself about the latest projects and products. The organizers expect that the fair with its 600 exhibitors will attract about 18,000 visitors. Already during our visit on the first day of the fair, it was clear that the industry is using the HUSUM Wind primarily for the purpose of exchanging ideas in order to prepare for the current political and economic challenges.Read more
Successful social media campaigns and press events
For the second time, “The smarter E” Europe took place in Munich in mid-May with the four trade fairs Intersolar, ees, Power2Drive and EM Power. As in the previous year, we also supported the organiser Solar Promotion with social media work in advance and on site at this year’s fair. Our video statements for ees Europe and Power2Drive Europe were a great success: Under the hashtag “PushEnergyTransition” the managing directors, marketing and sales managers of renowned exhibitors such as ads-tec, CATL, Huber+Suhner and Siemens explained how their companies and products are driving the energy transition forward. We integrated numerous other exhibitors into the social media work with statements, product, stand and employee photos. This enabled us not only to significantly increase the reach of the LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram channels, but also to increase the interaction rates – more likes, comments and shares.
Successful press events
Our press event, which we organised for the salt water storage manufacturer BlueSky Energy, also met with a great response this year: 16 editors from renowned industry media listened to the presentation by Managing Director Helmut Mayer. We then arranged numerous one-on-one meetings and placed 60 digital press kits with interested journalists.
For the solar wholesaler Redpoint new energy, however, we organized a press event at ees Europe to present the world’s first manufacturer-independent electricity cloud. For our customer my-PV, we organised background discussions with the most important industry media. TÜV Rheinland booked us for the invitation management for a press lunch.
We are pleased with the great success!
From 15 to 17 May, this year’s The smarter E Europe is going to take place in Munich. Covering 100,000 square meters of exhibition space, the fair brings together Intersolar Europe, ees Europe, Power2Drive Europe and EM-Power Europe. The organizers expect more than 1,300 exhibitors and over 50,000 visitors.
As in the previous year, we will once again look after the social media channels of ees Europe and Power2Drive Europe during the trade fair this year. ees Europe has been Europe’s largest and most visited trade fair for batteries and energy storage systems since 2014. The electric mobility fair Power2Drive attracts twice as many exhibitors compared to the previous year.
On behalf of the trade fair organizer Solar Promotion, we have been creating exciting contributions around the trade fair highlights on the Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and the newly created Instagram channels of the two trade fairs since the beginning of the year. We focus on particularly innovative exhibitors and let them speak about their solutions for the creation of a new energy world. At the trade fairs we will be reporting online about the program highlights, presenting spectacular booths and innovations and catching up on exhibitor statements for our #pushenergytransition campaign.
We support our customers BlueSky Energy and Redpoint new energy in the organization and support of press events, our customers TÜV Rheinland and my-PV with the organization of press discussions and the invitation management for a press lunch.
We look forward to exciting projects and exciting insights!
Under the motto “Get rid of the grid!”, Messe Augsburg organizes for the first time the OFF-GRID Experts Workshop, the leading event for self-sufficient power supply with solar, wind and hydropower plants, with Phaesun GmbH as its specialist partner. The specialist event for installers, dealers, planners, users and organisations from all over the world will take place from 19 to 21 September 2019 at Messe Augsburg. The previous location Memmingen had become too small for the combination of informative lectures, interactive workshops, accompanying exhibition and networking events.
