The Public Relations Global Network (PRGN) today announced the addition of three new worldwide agency affiliates in Chile, Portugal and Tokyo, bringing its global reach to 47 cities worldwide. The announcement was made during PRGN’S business conference in Los Angeles, California on April 18th. Joining the ranks of PRGN are RumboCierto Communications representing Chile, Global Press out of Portugal and Integrate Communications from Tokyo.
“PRGN is genuinely excited about the addition of these three accomplished public relations firms to our network,” said PRGN President David Landis. “These firms now offer our members an even broader geographical reach on behalf of our collective client base and we welcome them into the network. While other worldwide PR networks have either succumbed to the economy or simply gone out of business, the Public Relations Global Network continues to grow and thrive. I look forward to furthering our expansion especially in Asia, South America, the Middle East and Africa.”
