It is all about publicity and recognition. When a government – at any level – proclaims an event, the search value, marketability and promotions options grow. The more people talk about it, on their websites, social media platforms and news releases, the more coverage it – and you as the organizer – will get. It adds a ‘newsworthy’ value to the publicity you give IPLDay.
Getting an official government – civic, regional or national – proclamation is different for each body. The request also takes different amounts of time – so earlier is better. Simply put the government body’s name and the word proclamation and links on how to apply should appear.
If they don’t, contact the body and ask. Front line staff will be able to direct you. Best of luck. If you have tips on getting a proclamation, or have one, please use the Comments to share.
