Sustaining Buzz After the Launch
Alyson Lundell, Senior Manager PR
Tom Schroder, Vice President PR
The highly anticipated opening of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando’s Islands of Adventure was one of the most talked about events of the last year. Now, the extremely successful launch has others wondering what’s next.
Universal Orlando’s Tom Schroder, vice president of public relations, and Alyson Lundell, senior manager of public relations, will describe the Harry Potter mania surrounding the announcement in 2007 all the way through the opening last year. They will also discuss the challenges of sustaining such a cultural phenomenon.
Local practitioners will benefit from the lessons that the Universal PR team has learned throughout the past year by being able to modify the real-life examples to fit the needs of their own clients.
