Independently owned public relations agency, Kate & Co. Publicity and Events, is celebrating five recent new business wins including: Ovolo Hotels, Crown Melbourne, Anstel Brands (Joolz, Nattou and Kidsmill), Funlab (B. Lucky & Sons and Archie Brothers Cirque Electriq) and tech start-up Kloopr.

The agency has also recently opened a new fashion and lifestyle showroom space in its Sydney office, located in Darlinghurst.

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 the international hotel group’s portfolio of properties in Australia and Hong Kong. “We’re proud of sustaining long term relationships with our clients, whilst introducing new brands to our ever-growing portfolio.”

The agency has also been appointed to manage a three-month project with Crown Melbourne to support a key milestone on their marketing calendar. Activity will include media relations and influencer engagement.

Kate & Co. has been appointed on retainer by Anstel, Australia’s leading premium baby product distributor, to manage media relations and influencer engagement for three of the company’s key nursery brands – Joolz (high-end Dutch-designed prams), Nattou (Belgium-designed developmental toys) and Kidsmill (premium Scandinavian nursery furniture, soon to be launched in Australia). The appointment comes after Kate & Co. created a successful event with Anstel in 2017, to celebrate Joolz’s 10 year anniversary in Australia.
