Dublin-based PR and social media agency, Elevate PR, has today announced a new partnership with Belfast-based advertising and marketing agency, ASG & Partners.

Founded in 2001 by Emma Kelly, Elevate is a leading lifestyle communications agency, specialising in consumer PR, influencer marketing, social media and event management. Elevate offers brands creative ways to connect with people, ideas and trends. This development comes as part of a new agency strategy to offer an all island approach to clients from 2018.

With an impressive client roster in retail, food, culture, sport and the public sector, ASG & Partners, one of the North’s leading agencies, delivers complete and unrivalled marketing solutions. Offering public relations, advertising, digital and design, ASG & Partners has established a unique set of partnerships over the past number of years to offer clients an enhanced and comprehensive service.

Emma Kelly, Manager Director of Elevate PR, said: “We see a big opportunity with an all island approach for brands and organisations going forward, especially with the uncertainty of Brexit. There is great synergy between the approach of both agencies and we collaborate well. Belfast and Dublin are two dynamic, inspiring cities and the time is right for us to work in partnership with ASG. As we increasingly focus on an influencer first model of communication, we are excited to work with ASG to build relationships with trailblazers and thought leaders both north and south.”

Director of PR at ASG & Partners, Vicki Caddy said: “In a world where communications is constantly changing, we are working hard to offer our clients an unrivalled and tight-knit network of best-in-class specialists, and with Brexit on the horizon, and the obvious impact it will have on business across the Island of Ireland, our partnership with Elevate will further strengthen our offering, both here and in the Republic.

“We have worked alongside Emma and the team at Elevate on a number of PR projects over the past 10 years, and have found their values and ambitions similar to ours. They are fresh and forward-thinking and, led by their in-depth consumer insights, they excel at developing clever strategies and thoughtful executions that deliver first-class results on behalf of their clients.”
