The new form of network agency enables us as independent PR consultants something that is usually denied to typical industry representatives: access to larger budgets which require bigger resources.
Public relations for major events
The launch of our virtual agency was the Expo 2010 in Shanghai - with 70 million visitors the world's largest exhibition. While we took care of the Austrian public relations for the Austria-Expo pavilion from Vienna, the Expo team in China was active as ambassadors for our country for half a year.
The second assignment followed immediately on occasion of the joint annual meeting of the German, Austrian and Swiss Society for Thoracic Surgery in October 2010 in Vienna, to which 700 doctors came. The PR-Cluster took over the PR for the convention at short notice. It proofed anew the good working relationship of the team as well as the extensive experience available. The result was numerous spots on radio, in print and online media. The customer Mondial Congress emphasised the unusually high clipping output through the special efforts of the PR-Cluster.
Subsequently further projects followed, accomplished with the proven division of labour. In 2012 we managed the PR of the "bridges of dialogue" exhibition at the Palais Liechtenstein for the Embassy of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
