When the US Media met Power Pitching…again!

18th November, 2022

On the 29th of September, we were delighted to welcome back the US media, who returned to see what Christmas gifts were on offer this year, at our Holiday Gift Guide Short Lead Power Pitching event. We’re delighted to say our exceptional brands did not disappoint. From hand-engraved jewellery to personalised stories, technological offerings, gorgeous blankets, hampers galore and some stylish fashion pieces, the journalists were spoilt for choice. 

We were lucky enough to be joined by the following brands who shared their products:

A successful event led to 100% of all journalists, who provided feedback, giving us a five out of five in their satisfaction rating. 

Below, we’ve included some of the wonderful testimonials our journalists shared:

“This event is so efficiently run. I appreciated the extra minute with the brand reps, and the affiliate-friendly focus of the event. Thanks for having me/RD.com!” - Megan Mowery, Reader’s Digest

“I had a great time sitting in on the speed pitching event this morning! All the brands were fantastic and very knowledgeable, and I really enjoyed learning more about some of the international offerings, like the Tartan Blanket Company and Merci Maman!” - Michelle Baricevic, Food Network.com

“This was a succinct, informative, and entertaining way to get to know brands that weren't already on my radar! Looking forward to attending more in the future.” - Kelsey Chapman, The Independent - Indy100 Wishlist

“Quick, easy and chock full of great day gift guide ideas! Had something for every age and in every price range.” - Mandy DeCamp, US Weekly

Merci Maman, one of the brands featured in this Power Pitching session, was kind enough to share some valuable and insightful feedback about our events:

“We always love the CIJ Power Pitching events! Such an effective and efficient way to meet lots of relevant journalists and build relationships in the US.” - Olivia Camsey, Merci Maman

Whilst this is our last US Media-led event for the year, we already have the dates in our diary for 2023, commencing another amazing run of events, beginning with Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day Power Pitching. 

With brands already ready and waiting for their chance to showcase what exciting products they’ve got up their sleeves, we know their products will inspire the media.
