Rooster to take on media brief for 2020 cruising event

Rooster have been appointed to drive media coverage of the fifth edition of the Wave Awards, covering the UK's cruise industry.

Real Response Media has appointed Rooster as the PR agency to drive media coverage for the fifth edition of the Wave Awards, the UK cruise industry awards.

The ceremony will take place on 2 April 2020 and is renowned for its recognition within the cruise holiday sector, with categories including Best New Ship Launch, Best for Solo Travel and Best Value-for-Money cruise line. The Wave Awards are even widely known as the ‘Oscars of Cruising.’

Real Response Media is the owner and organiser of the awards and has brought Rooster on board to drive coverage and boost awareness for its 2020 event.

Colette Doyle, group editor at Real Response Media and co-chair of the Wave Awards, said: “As we approach the awards’ fifth birthday, we’re looking more than ever before to acknowledge and commend all those shaping the future of the industry right across the board, from exciting innovations on board to fascinating on-shore excursions."

"Rooster’s proven passion for cruising, coupled with some brand-new award categories and a new venue for 2020, are set to make next year’s celebrations even bigger than ever.”

The awards offer cruise lines, travel agents, tourist boards, ports and others involved in the UK cruise industry the chance to showcase their brand, expertise and contribution to the cruising holiday sector.

James Brooke, managing director at Rooster, said: “The Wave Awards champion the very best of the UK cruise sector, whether that be celebrating exceptional on-board experiences or rewarding innovation in this ever-growing, adaptable industry."

"We’re very much looking forward to working with Real Response Media on honouring all those involved in the industry, as well as ensuring that this prestigious event is marked in a memorable way.”

The 2020 shortlist will be announced early in the new year and the awards ceremony will be held at 8 Northumberland Avenue in central London.
