I have worked with MCS for the last two years in my role as Editor of Running Free magazine and my current role of Reviews Editor of www.therunningbug.co.uk. The team has always been helpful, quick to respond, and have sent out relevant and interesting press releases. Product information and images are always received in time for my often, very tight, deadlines.

I’ve worked with the team from MCS for many years and they have always provided an extremely efficient service to me, by giving me the information I need when I need it. Their experience and knowledge lets them find promotional solutions that work well for journalists as well as for their brands. It is this team work approach that has contributed to their many years of success in the outdoor industry.

Covering outdoor equipment for national consumer magazines means dealing with many different brands hundreds, even and that can be a frustrating process. MCS simplifies that task, providing me with exactly what I need in an efficient, professional yet friendly manner. The staff there have a keen understanding of my requirements as a writer, and of what their client needs in terms of getting their product out there. In the world of outdoor PR, few companies come close to the quality of service provided by MCS.

Despite being located at the other end of the country to RW Towers, MCS has always provided Runner’s World with a courteous and professional service, treading the fine line between knowing when to plug their clients’ products in a proactive way, and when not to chase an opportunity that probably doesn’t exist.
Senior Writer, Runners World
I’ve found MCS to be helpful, enthusiastic and knowledgeable about their clients’ products and the market at large. They are proactive without over-selling and extremely responsive when I’ve had queries. MCS is always on my short-list of go-to PRs when deadlines are tight.

MCS represent some of the biggest brands in the outdoor business with professionalism and passion. They are always ready to field technical enquiries and can usually supply samples, technical info and photography. Furthermore, they are unceasingly proactive in supplying product news and updates and their successful management of the Outdoor Trade Show puts them at the heart of the UK’s dynamic outdoor trade sector.

They have increased our brand awareness in the outdoor market and have been effective in communicating our key messages and product updates to both the trade and consumer media, quickly and without hassle.”
We find MCS very efficient and well respected in the Outdoor industry. They are proactive in managing contacts within the press and we have found their ‘Gear Alert’ mail outs an effective way of communicating with journalists to highlight new products.

I must have been dealing with MCS for over a decade now. I can’t think of a single instance where they’ve let me down. There’s a genuine team spirit here and an understanding that, when journalists ask questions, they want answers – and fast. When it comes to the outdoors market, this is a top-quality set-up based on individuals who really know their stuff and aren’t afraid to be pro-active.

Businesses aiming to communicate in specialist markets require specialist expertise. When asked by those who need to address the outdoor sector we always recommend that they look to a PR agency that can demonstrate a track record built upon serving the outdoor market. And MCS’ track record of excellence is the longest and arguably the most distinguished in an industry that is blessed with some good PR suppliers.
