Brazil is next on the list of International PR firms we review – Brazil is the world’s seventh-largest economy, with a GDP of $2.4 trillion. It sponsored the 2014 FIFA World Cup, and Rio de Janeiro will host the 2016 Summer Olympics. The nation’s considered the 13th worst among the world’s 150 wealthiest countries regarding income inequality.
These disparities become evident in the wake of such massive athletic events. The World Cup resulted in many workers’ strikes and protests, casting the nation’s class issues in a harsh light. Similar reputation-damaging scandals loom as possibilities with the influx of tourists and media attention promised by the Olympics. It’s never been more critical for Brazil’s public relations agencies to work hard for the industries leading to its status as a rising global superpower.
Here are three Brazilian PR firms making a major impact:
This bureau’s specialties include fitness and sports ventures, making it a particularly worthy agency for Brazil’s major athletics economy. Representing sporting outlets in Brazil and England along with international teams, New Zealand’s popular All Blacks rugby features on their client roster. It also focuses on technology and telecom companies alongside biotech, big pharma, and health. With offices in London and Qatar as well Brazil, Agency Brazil offers a fresh face to large-scale industries demanding perspectives from multiple continents, including a recent client launching a malaria-fighting mosquito patch. They successfully helped the company raise the funds necessary to distribute over 150,000 patches to families in malaria-ridden areas of Uganda and plans to continue on an international level.
