National Client Media Coverage (Mar-Apr 2024)

  • PR

We’ve had a bumper few months in March and April here at Umpf HQ, and the coverage has been rolling in for our clients from across the board. We’ve had hundreds of pieces of regional and sector-specific media clippings, but it’s often the nationals that set the pulses racing…


March and April was a busy one for the Umpf Bluewater shopping centre team.  The Kent centre – one of Europe’s leading retail and leisure destinations – will soon be welcoming a huge state-of-the-art football dome attraction, backed by footballing legend Rio Ferdinand – news of the launch was covered in The Sun (watch out for the launch coverage in our next round-up). We also supported the shopping centre’s 25th anniversary activity, which – as well as landing 46 pieces of print, online, and broadcast coverage with a reach of more than 91.6m – included our spectacular drone display stunt. The team also set up two reviews of the centre’s Hangloose attraction which included a full page in The Sun, a video review online and another piece in the Express.
