Technology PR agency short listed for Chartered Institute of Public Relations Award

Vitis PR finalist in Public sector award category for its work to promote the technology sector in the Midlands

Online PR News – 06-September-2009 – – Vitis PR, a technology pr agency, has been short listed as a finalist in CIPR Midlands PRide awards for its work with the West Midlands ICT Cluster to promote innovation, collaboration and the annual ICT Excellence Awards and Conference to regional technology businesses.

Vitis PR was formed in 2006 and full service technology PR to companies within the region, UK and internationally.

“Typically technology companies have looked to London or the surrounding areas for a technology pr agency that can handle the promotion of their products or services, but we saw a need for an experienced agency here in the Midlands too as the technology sector grows”, said Ranbir Sahota, Director, Vitis PR.

“Our work with the ICT Cluster targets SME technology businesses through media and social media activity, newsletters, posters, event support and case study development. It would be a great boost to the team if we did get the ultimate recognition from the CIPR for the hard work and creativity we have brought to the promotion of the ICT Cluster,” she continued.

Ann Mealor, CIPR Acting Director General said: “This year more than ever, consultancies and organisations entering the PRide Awards want to spotlight their achievements while boosting morale - and being a PRide finalist does just that. Having gone through rigorous judging to reach the shortlist is a great achievement and I offer my congratulations to all those who have reached this stage of the competition.”

The PRide Awards is the only awards scheme showcasing the best PR work being carried out across the UK regions. The judging process is rigorous with a national panel of industry experts assessing the shortlisted entries and choosing the winners. For 2009 we appointed two Chairs of Judges, John Aspery and Chris Genasi, who will resolve any disputes and help ensure a fair and consistent judging process.
