The international agency network Eurocom Worldwide is pleased to announce another partner agency in the United Kingdom. The communications agency Context Public Relations, Manchester, will support the international PR network with its technology expertise in the consumer sector, making it the second English network partner alongside the London B2B agency Napier.
Context was founded in 1992 by Frank Smith near Manchester and focuses on the IT and technology sector including consumer tech, health tech and fintech in the UK as well as Ireland. The agency supports technology companies in media relations, content marketing, social media and inbound marketing programmes. Context also advises international companies on highly sensitive issues – from mergers and acquisitions to security breaches and product safety issues. The agency is a member of the UK Public Relations and Communications Association (PRCA), underlining its commitment to ethical standards.
“We have joined the Eurocom network because more and more of our clients are asking for international PR work and we want to offer them the same first-class service on a global scale that they already receive from us in the UK and Ireland,” says Frank Smith, founder and managing director of Context Public Relations. “Eurocom provides the perfect fit for us as all members are independent as well as mid-sized agencies that focus on the IT and technology sector globally.”
Napier will continue to serve as Eurocom Worldwide’s B2B member, while Context will handle all inbound B2C clients and prospects.
Founded in 2002, Eurocom Worldwide is one of the largest independent PR and marketing communications networks with significant specialisation in the global B2B and technology markets. The network currently comprises 26 independent, owner-managed member agencies with 40 offices covering 70 countries on all five continents. The network partner for Germany, Austria and Switzerland is Schwartz Public Relations, based in Munich.
Christoph Schwartz, Deputy Chairman of Eurocom Worldwide and owner of the communications agency Schwartz Public Relations, is pleased about the addition: “Context is characterised by enormous professionalism and has excellent market and industry knowledge. They are thus a very good fit for Eurocom Worldwide and strengthen the network. We look forward to working with them.”
