PR agency Kate & Co. has recently celebrated five new business wins, as well as opening a new fashion and lifestyle showroom space in its Sydney office.
Ovolo Hotels, Crown Melbourne, Anstel (Joolz, Nattou and Kidsmill), Funlab (B.Lucky & Sons and Archie Brothers Cirque Electriq) and tech start-up Kloopr are among the new business wins for the independent agency.
Kate & Co. managing director Kate Keane said the agency was excited about both the new business and the new showroom.
“As an agency, we are really proud of these latest new business wins, as well as the opening of our Sydney showroom space,” she said.
“We are continuing to evolve and grow our offering as an agency, and are delighted to be adding these incredibly impressive brands to our portfolio of national and international clients.”
Kate & Co. has been appointed as the retainer agency for Ovolo Hotels, driving all Australian and New Zealand media relations, influencer engagement and collaborations in the lifestyle and consumer space for properties in both Australia and Hong Kong.
The agency has also been appointed to manage a three-month project with Crown Melbourne to support a key milestone on their marketing calendar, and will help manage media relations and influencer engagement.
Premium baby product distributor Anstel has hired Kate & Co. on retainer to manage media relations and influencer engagement for three of the company’s key nursery brands – Joolz, Nattou and Kidsmill.
This appointment comes after Kate & Co. held an event with Anstel in 2017 to celebrate Joolz’s 10-year anniversary in Australia.
In addition, Kate & Co. is also collaborating with entertainment and hospitality group Funlab (the owners of Holey Moley) once again to manage the launch of two new venues in Melbourne: B.Lucky & Sons and Archie Brothers Cirque Electriq.
Kate & Co. will be responsible for managing the venue’s launch events as well as media relations and influencer engagement.
The agency will also be launching new online food delivery platform, Kloopr. The campaign includes a signing ceremony in August marking the announcement of Kloopr’s key partners, followed by a launch campaign later in the year.
Adding to the extensive new business wins, Kate & Co. has also opened its new Sydney showroom space which features Witchery and Phare collections.
The showroom (pictured above) is open to media, stylists, influencers and celebrities for one-on-one appointments and showings.
