It’s the new year and a pretty crazy time at the moment. So, to help our fellow PRs and brands look for new ways to cut through the noise and continue to secure awesome results, we’ve highlighted a handful of things happening in the world of PR next week, and show how you can utilise these opportunities to your best advantage.

HOUSEPLANT WEEK, MONDAY 11TH – SUNDAY 17TH JANUARY

#HouseplantWeekUK celebrates indoor gardening. Property, interior, and even wellbeing experts could offer insight or helpful tips on the best home plants, the benefits of having some greenery in your home (especially during this lockdown!), and the do’s/don’ts.

THE BRITISH RETAIL CONSORTIUM, TUESDAY 12TH JANUARY

The British Retail Consortium (BRC) Retail Sales Monitor measures the change in the value of same-store sales in member retail outlets throughout the UK.

A great reactive opportunity for various experts including retail, finance, and e-commerce to share their commentary with the media on what the latest statistics are telling us, what this means for the industry including consumers, and future predictions.

Head here for the release on Tuesday.

UK RICS HOUSE PRICE BALANCE, THURSDAY 14TH JANUARY

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) House Price Balance is a leading report indicating house price inflation as surveyors have access to the latest price data.

Property and personal finance experts should look to provide commentary on the findings including what they mean for both buyers and sellers across the UK, the positive/negative impact on the housing market, and the outlook short/medium-term.

Head here for the release on Thursday.

OUTPUT IN THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY, FRIDAY 15TH JANUARY

The construction output for the UK is released each month, with the latest statistics to be launched on Friday.

Another great opportunity for property experts to analyse the results and share comments with the media on either the growth/decline in activity and what this means for the sector, again short/medium-term.

Head here for the release on Friday.
