Each month, we spotlight some of the outstanding media coverage of our clients’ news and events. You’ll see them featured frequently in newspapers and magazines, on television and radio, and on blogs and social media.

Wine & Food FestFebruary is the height of Southwest Florida’s event season, and one of the region’s top-grossing philanthropic events each year – the Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest – offers a mix of exquisite cuisine, fine wines, amazing auction lots and unbelievably generous participants. Proceeds from the 2020 event will help fund the new SWFL Children’s Charities Eye Institute.

Priority Marketing helped secure advance media coverage in the weeks leading up to the Feb. 22 festival, as well as live event coverage from the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point.
