For nearly 25 years, Fitz & Company has focused on creating strategies for established and emerging leaders in the global art world. The company’s strategy is built upon media relations, integrated marketing, digital marketing and social media, audience engagement, and events. The relationship between the company and its clients begins with brainstorming, followed by analyzing the best way to implement skills that focus on the deliverables that meet the client’s goals. Fitz & Co. serves as the advisor on the media relations strategy, communicating regularly to collaborate on the messages that suit the client’s needs and organizational culture.
Current clients include Art Basel, which runs some of the world’s most famous modern and contemporary art shows in Basel, Hong Kong, and Miami Beach.
