Fane Productions has appointed Riot Communications to lead its PR efforts. The production company has been an exciting challenger in the live events space in recent years, working with a variety of talent, many in the publishing space, to produce high-profile and high-quality live shows. In the past 6 months, Fane successfully launched a powerful online events arm, already boasting over half a million visitors to their site a month, and 60,000 new online subscribers, many of whom have never attended a literary event before.
Working with Riot, Fane will showcase the organisation’s capability to work with publishers and talent of all sizes in a mutually beneficial way, continuing to deliver exciting and engaging events to a broad audience.
Preena Gadher, Riot MD, said: “Live events has had a radical shake-up since COVID-19 and I have been very impressed with how Fane, already known for delivering polished events, reacted and adapted to meet the challenges of the new world. To me, that shows great leadership and tenacity, and a business with its finger clearly on the pulse. That makes Fane an exciting client to partner with.”
Alex Fane, Founder and MD of Fane, commented: “We’re delighted to be working with Riot on the next chapter for Fane. They delivered a vision that was both challenging and innovative which fits perfectly with how we run the business. Having become an independent company and launched our online programme there is a huge amount to be talking about and we can’t wait to get started.”
