In a very elementary stage of negotiations, the media refused to broadcast information about the casino, as there were risks of fines and warnings from FAS.
We provided FAS and mass media representatives with a chain of arguments that allowed the PR company:
- information about the event is not advertising and does not relate to the law "On Advertising»
- positioned object (the show) is not a structure related to the casino, so the show can be reported in mass media,
- All story scripts, news texts and photos were carefully checked and moderated by FAS,
also we gained the right to announce directly about the event’s location (the casino) and mention the name of the site.
