Market Intelligence

Public Relations in Italy are no more just synonymous of dinners and receptions as it used to be for decades, but the most integrated communication discipline in the corporate and marketing mix. Consultancy covers now many important subjects such as Corporate Responsibility in many fields like environment, ethics, governance, consumer relations, personnel welfare etc… Social marketing and social media are now so common and expected by clients even if not really suitable for their objectives. Great attention is given to tourism and to the needed infrastructures which have been forgotten for many years and this in order to recuperate the competitive leading position which this country deserves, with its greatest heritage in the world. Innovation in all fields is searched even in the way to reach the very fragmented targets and this is the challenge of Public Relations Consultancies to help clients in their operations. Consumers are much more attentive to the price of goods for which they expect good quality and a very good after sale service and the many consumer organizations are now concentrated and therefore more powerful and active.
