After securing a momentous Gold in April’s Commonwealth Games, the sporting world has been buzzing with excitement about what comes next for the England Roses, with Tracey Neville’s side beating overwhelming favourites Australia in a nail-biting finish.


At team Conker we’re delighted to announce we’ve been ‘called up’ by Vitality Netball World Cup 2019 to handle the public relations activity for the next major international sporting event in netball’s calendar. Elite players from 16 international teams will be competing for the coveted Vitality Netball World Cup (VNWC2019) trophy at the Echo Arena Liverpool next summer (July 12-21, 2019).


After a competitive pitching process, Conker has been selected as communications partner for this premier international event, hosted on home turf here in the North West.  We’ve been tasked with developing a cohesive media relations programme that combines milestone related activities with an ‘always-on’ news programme, to capitalise on the netball fever that’s gripping the nation.
