This year, Vietnamese public relations and marketing agency EloQ Communications snagged two awards at the 3rd ASEAN PR Excellence Award. Managing director, Dr Clāra Ly-Le, won the Best PR Practitioner award in the Southeast Asia region, while the agency was presented with the Best PR Agency award.
“I have never doubted the talent and dedication of my team at EloQ,” said Dr Ly-Le. “These awards prove and celebrate our team’s desire to create leading-edge campaigns that make minds think and drive results for our clients, despite the very hard time of the Covid-19 pandemic that we all have to face. I am incredibly grateful to my colleagues, partners and clients for their support.”
Out of the six awards that the Vietnamese representatives received, EloQ Communications bagged two:
- Best PR agency – Bronze. Proof for EloQ’s service standard is a diversified clientele with Fortune 500 businesses, multinational companies, local favourites, and fast-growing startups.
