Stevie judges unanimously praised Thomas PR’s public relations work for swisstech at CES 2023:

  • “Awesome results for CES - which is challenging to attract meetings with so much noise,” – Stevie Awards judge.

  • “That was definitely a huge undertaking to coordinate that many start-ups and the logistics of pitching so many stories to media. One can imagine that pitches to certain reporters and outlets would need to be carefully coordinated as well. Great to see the strong turn-out for the Swiss Pavilion and the strong global media coverage that resulted. Well done!” – Stevie Awards judge.

  • “This is a fascinating campaign and must have been both a challenge and a joy for the team. The PR results are excellent,” – Stevie Awards judge.
