LAS CRUCES, NM: The New Mexico Spaceport Authority (NMSA) has issued a request for proposals for media relations services for Spaceport America, announced Christine Anderson, executive director of the spaceport.
“Spaceport America has been attracting attention from news and media outlets worldwide,” said Anderson in a news release Friday. “This contract will help develop, manage and maintain effective communications with members of the local, national and international press corps as well as the public about our exciting project.”
The RFP calls for services in the following areas: media relations and liaison, public relations outreach, media tours, press releases, statement writing and press coverage archival work.
The NMSA has established as a part of its website an online business registry so local businesses can post contact information and the level and type of services they offer. Larger companies can identify potential sub-contractors and suppliers with the capability to provide specific goods or services.
The $209-million, taxpayer-financed spaceport in southeastern Sierra County is a future launch site for commercial space travelers.
