Vista Alegre Strategy
Vista Alegre, founded in 1824 in Portugal, is a premium tabletop brand with a global presence. In order to build upon the European company’s global reputation as a storied, high-end brand in the U.S., Vista Alegre partnered with lotus823 to utilize the agency’s Public Relations services and key media relationships.
Since 2013, lotus823 has worked with Vista Alegre to create and execute a comprehensive public relations strategy to grow brand awareness and enhance its brand reputation by garnering positive coverage in top-tier trade and consumer media outlets. The team targeted outlets with audiences that fit within Vista Alegre’s core and target customer bases (including brides, homeowners, entertainers, the gifting market, trade, and more), crafted editorial ideas surrounding key products, and continuously researched and sourced major editorial opportunities. lotus823 also provided on-site support at numerous events and trade shows, including NY NOW, AmericasMart, and The Tabletop Show.
In addition to growing Vista Alegre’s presence in the U.S., lotus823 provided support for Vista Alegre’s everyday tabletop brands, Casa Alegre and Bordallo Pinheiro.
“Not only does lotus823 secure amazing press for our brands; they are dedicated to making sure that each placement is a deliberate one that speaks directly to our audiences – in media outlets that share our elevated brand voice. Their relationships with the press and industry contacts in general have helped get us in front of new opportunities and audiences that inevitably grow the business.”
