Communications, marketing and PR for Trade Associations 


BlueSky has a wealth of experience providing PR and content support to trade associations and professional bodies. Crafting compelling narratives that resonate with your audiences and stakeholders is our forte. From press releases and op-eds through to thought leadership pieces, research and white paper creation, we produce carefully tailored content that amplifies the voice of your organisation with your stakeholders.


Member acquisition

We recognise that while a trade association or professional body is a not-for-profit organisation, there is still a commercial imperative in both retaining members – and recruiting new ones. Our campaigns, both proactive and reactive, highlight the benefits of membership by ensuring that your success stories are communicated to the right audiences through press releases & articles in relevant media to target potential members, as well as through the provision of compelling content for potential member campaigns.


Member relations

We understand the importance of member retention and can provide content for member relations campaigns so that your work – and the media coverage and content secured which highlights that work - is consistently communicated.


Public policy influencing

We have extensive experience of turning public policy asks into compelling messaging through:

  • Response statements to Government legislative and public policy announcements
  • Press statements highlighting public policy “asks”
  • Research and content for white papers and policy briefings which support your public affairs agenda
