World-class: why we rate so highly in the PR game

Last week, my deluge of overnight emails included one that looked suspicious.  I came very close to deleting it.

GlobalCom annual meeting

It’s that time of the year again when the GlobalCom PR Network family gathers to discuss common business interests, how to work together as a global unit and to have a good time. With around 50 expected PR & Marketing professionals from about 30 countries worldwide, the annual GlobalCom meeting has grown to a respectable number and is becoming more and more popular amongst the network and PR scene.

This year’s get-together takes place on Greece’s largest island: Crete. Crete has been named one of the best-rated travel destinations in the world from the annual Travellers’ Choice awards, announced by Trip Advisor.

Before the island was called Crete though it had a number of names. One of them was ‘Kaptara’ which was given by the Syrians who first inhabited the island. The ancient Egyptians called the island ‘Keftiu’ before it was given the Latin name ‘Creta’. The GlobalCom attendees are already  very excited to visit this exotic spot on the planet and to spend a productive and fruitful time on the historical island.

True to the GlobalCom format, the meeting will start on a Wednesday evening, May 22, with a welcome cocktail to shake hands, meet new and familiar faces and get warmed up for the official business part. The business program starts on Thursday morning May 23, allowing attendees to attend inspiring discussions, new member introductions and exciting presentations all around business development for two days on a promising agenda. The GlobalCom management picked the Nana Princess as this years venue, located just outside the coastal resort of Hersonissos, facing the Cretan sea in northern Crete.

On Friday evening May 24, the group is then brought to Agos Nikolaos. With a fresh sea breeze and typical Cretan atmosphere, the 2nd edition of the GlobalCom PR Network Awards will be celebrated.
The awards are packed with outstanding submissions from about 30 participating agencies. With these fascinating case studies, GlobalCom once again proves the high quality of our network and our partners.

 

Furhter details and regular updates will be published on our blog and social media channels before, during and after the event. Look out for news and stay tuned.

We wish all participants a wonderful time and a successful get-together.

GlobalCom PR Network announces its newest addition to the family – EloQ Communications, Vietnam.

As a rapidly growing market, Vietnam requires reliable and competent local experts that are able to support international clients and their communication challenges in this dynamic environment. We are delighted to welcome Clāra Ly-Le and her team at EloQ Communications on board as we are convinced that they will be a great fit to the family.

The steadily grwoing GlobalCom PR Network ecosystem can currently serve about 100 countries worldwide and continues to expand in many regions globally.

EloQ Communications will be the primary contact for international business going to Vietnam.

A little background about EloQ Communications:

EloQ was founded in 2015 as a subsidiary of Thailand-based Vero PR under the name Vero IMC Vietnam led by Clāra Ly-Le, who still heads the agency now. They transitioned to independence under our new name at the start of 2019. We continue to specialize in working with overseas companies doing business in Vietnam, including the diverse clientele you can find on their site. However, EloQ is also looking to expand their connections throughout Asia in order to head more regional campaigns for both Vietnamese and foreign companies.

With the choice of their name – pronounced ‘eh-lok’ and short for “eloquent,” which the Oxford English Dictionary defines as “giving a clear, strong message” – EloQ is emphasizing their goal of using superior communication skills and local market literacy to represent clients in a way that is both faithful to their branding and fluent in the local style.

We look forward to a fruitful cooperation and wish a warm welcome to the team @EloQ Communications!
