Armed Forces International has teamed up with global news distribution firm PR Newswire to form an exciting and dynamic new partnership.
This collaboration will ensure Armed Forces International’s extensive reader-base is supplied with news of the very latest defence industry events and innovations.
Enhancing its regularly-updated news section and the constant supply of articles supplied by its site sponsors, the new press release area expands the present scope of Armed Forces International's news coverage even more.
Military Press Releases
PR Newswire’s global reach ensures a diverse and truly international spread of press releases has now started to be published by AFI, giving up-to-the-minute coverage of the most recent and important technological and corporate developments.
The military press release area is a specific new part of the site, but users have the option to have the releases sent through a free RSS service– an extremely convenient way to find out what’s new while it’s still current.
Online Military Information
Armed Forces International sits at the forefront of online military information sites. With news coverage, extensive photo and video databases, a suppliers directory and many other features, we’ve carved out a strong identity within the defence industry. With PR Newswire on board, our reputation can only get stronger, reinforcing our position as a leading supplier of military-related web content.
PR Newswire originated over 50 years ago and has grown over the years to gain global recognition. Used by the most significant defence players as a platform to spread the word, its client list literally extends into the tens of thousands.
In 1954, it pioneered the use of electronic technology to send out press releases across New York. The advancement of the internet has expanded PR Newswire to a worldwide operation, streaming releases to close to 5,000 websites and with a digital media channel to which over 85,000 journalists are subscribed.
Together, AFI and PR Newswire offer site users 24-hour access to streamlined and industry-relevant press release coverage in the first of what is planned to be a series of tie-ups with other key industry players. Watch this space...
