Spanish term or phrase: dar presencia física a
Can anyone help me with this one please? Is there an equivalent in English?
It's referring to using banners/signs at events to 'dar presencia física a una organización'.
Thank you!

create (brand) awareness
Explanation:
If it's for an actual business, I'd keep "brand" in the phrase, otherwise, if it's a non-profit group, just "create awareness".

to give a presence


Explanation:
You can also say "give a physical presence" but I would rather leave out the word "physical" unless you REALLY want to emphasise the physicality. The references have examples of both possibilities.
