ABOUT RTA PUBLICITY

RTA Publicity was established in 1982 by our MD Lynn Wall and has grown to be recognised as one of the UK’s leading suppliers of sponsorship signage, venue branding and perimeter advertising.

From her background at Ladbrokes & Aintree Racecourse, Lynn spotted a gap in the market for selling advertising hoardings at racecourses, which got nationwide coverage at televised race meetings – hence Racecourse Televised Advertising – RTA – was born.

We now work across all the major horseracing festivals, for venues, sponsors, caterers and hospitality providing a range of branding solutions across all the sectors to enhance brand visibility, amplify sponsorship activity and support operations.

Although the majority of our work is within horseracing, over the years we’ve worked at a wide range of other events nationwide, such as Euro ’96, the Stella Artois Tennis Championships at the Queen’s Club, the World Darts Championships, Chelsea Flower Show, Henley, the Greyhound Derby and the Red Bull Air Race, as well as all sorts of hospitality, awards and corporate events.

With bases in Uxbridge and Liverpool, we offer a nationwide delivery and installation service.
RTA offers a complete suite of branding services, from project management to artworking services, production and installation.

Helen joined the company back in 1996 when RTA won the signage contract for the Euro 96 football championships and an extra pair of hands were needed. The business has certainly grown since then! Helen has the exciting challenge of making sure our finances are in as good a shape as can be, whilst supporting the rest of the team when needed. In her free time Helen enjoys nothing more than a long walk somewhere in the Chilterns followed by a good meal with a glass or two of wine. The simple pleasures….
