CHICAGO—The Chicago Software Association (CSA) has named Edelman’s Business and Technology practice in Chicago as its communications partner for its 2004 fiscal year. Edelman will participate in event planning, develop communications materials for events, and promote the events through media and key industry influencer outreach.
“We had enormous success working with Edelman promoting our recent CSA Partnering Conference in April,” said Candy Renwall, executive director of the Association. “Its talented and knowledgeable staff made Edelman an excellent choice to support our wide range of events throughout the next year.”
CSA events include roundtables, seminars, morning and evening networking venues and exhibitions. The first major event for Edelman is the organization’s Tenth Annual Early Stage Investment Conference (ESIC) as well as its educational boot camps leading up to the conference.
MIAMI—Pacer Health Corporation, a Miami-based owner-operator of assisted living and residential care facilities, has selected Edelman as its public relations agency of record for nationwide media and investor relations.
As part of a one-year agreement, Edelman also will manage Pacer Health’s overall corporate communications initiatives, including local-market community relations, and will develop initiatives to strengthen Pacer Health’s positive positioning among key audiences in the medical community.
“Pacer Health wanted to work with an agency that not only brings significant expertise in public relations for the healthcare industry, but also is deeply engaged and committed to health issues,” said Rainier Gonzalez, chairman and chief executive officer of Pacer Health. “Edelman is a recognized global leader in healthcare public relations, and the perfect communications partner to differentiate and solidify the Pacer Health brand within the residential care space.”
