Premier Farnell Launch Online Global Newsroom Ahead of Electronica 2016

Premier Farnell, The Development Distributor, has launched an online newsroom to announce their latest news across the globe. The newsroom caters for journalists and customers alike and includes all the latest news from a wide range of manufacturers, updates to key products categories and provides event information from around the world, all in one place.

The element14 newsroom acts as a one-stop-shop for journalists by offering all the latest press releases translated into key languages along with the related hi-resolution imagery, allowing the media to get first hand access to all the necessary information for their publications quickly and easily. Soon to come will also be profiles of all element14’s key spokespeople, along with their headshots and the opportunity to request an interview.

Steve Carr, Global head of marketing for Premier Farnell says,

“We are always working on something new and wanted to create a designated space for people to come to, to get all the information they need to stay up to date with what is happening both with ourselves as well as our huge range of brands. Our newsroom is the perfect place for customers and journalists, as it is a truly global resource covering products from the world’s leading manufacturers, with content in local languages”.

The launch of the newsroom could not come at a better time, with Electronica 2016 just weeks away. Visit the element14 Newsroom at
