Skyrora’s media presence reaches for the sky thanks to expert Tech PR

A host of media coverage brings Skyrora tech PR success

WHEN Skyrora told us it was working with an experienced rocket engineer to create the first totally private space launch in the UK, we were excited to make sure it made big news across the media.

The Edinburgh-based rocket firm completed the acquisition of the FARISpace project, led by acclaimed rocket engineer, Richard M Brown.

FARISpace has been reconfigured by Skyrora in order to carry a larger payload under the name ‘SkyHy’ as the company builds on the success of its inaugural test launch last summer.

We utilised our contact book to ensure the story was propelled into the media orbit and seen by as many people as possible.

  • A total of 361,656 opportunities for people to see the story

The broad range of coverage is essential as Skyrora continues to grow in order to improve its presence among the public and key stakeholders.
