You could call KMK Media Group the Rockford Area Convention & Visitors Bureau outsourced marketing team, working with its in-house professionals when the organization needs extra support. From PR to social media to graphic design, KMK creates ads, signage, press releases, and much more.

graphic design

When the Midwestern & Pacific Coast Synchronized Skating Sectional Championships chose Rockford as its host city for 2023, the Rockford Area Convention & Visitors Bureau chose KMK to manage the announcement.  KMK created a special logo for the event and six large-scale signs and skater silhouettes for the press conference measuring 4' x 6'.  KMK’s past graphic design work for the organization includes marketing for the holiday Stroll on State festival, special events in Davis Park, the mural festival, and sport events.

public relations

When Northern Illinois native and NBA star Fred VanVleet helped the Toronto Raptors win the NBA Championship, the Rockford Area Convention & Visitors Bureau hired KMK Media to handle the public relations for two huge community watch parties dubbed Jurassic Park RKFD and a triumphant championship celebration to welcome Fred home after the big win. KMK handled PR inquiries from all over the world including Canada and Europe, coordinating VanVleet's interview schedule and handling media at the jam-packed events that drew thousands to downtown Rockford.

tv/video production

When the RACVB aimed to ignite excitement for their Destination Plan Resident Survey to drive tourism for the next ten years, they looked no further than KMK. The KMK team delivered results with the creation of a dynamic television commercial and engaging social media video. The video, highlighting various areas within the Rockford region, not only helped them reach their response goal but blew past it!
