Bad news if you were chasing the Colorado Tourism Office’s public relations/social media account. It went to New York-based MMG Mardiks, which has had the account since 2006.

“Over the past four years, we have developed an innovative, buzz- and business-building PR program in partnership with the Colorado Tourism Office,” said Charles Mardiks, managing director, MMG Mardiks. “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to build on this momentum and to continue to showcase this great state” that I fly over regularly on the Virgin Atlantic JFK-LAX redeye.

New York City? This town is filled with incredibly talented people and firms. Who better to promote the state than people who actually live, work and play here?

Absolutely stunning that Colorado goes out of state, to promote the state.

A sad state of affairs.

Out of fairness, I should add if anyone even responded to the Colorado Tourism Office RFP?

Let’s just hope that a lot of East Coast people come to our state and spend their money here.

Having worked with MMG’s Denver and NYC offices for the past four years, I’m thrilled that they got the contract again. They’ve consistently helped me and my clients with national and international media. Their contacts and relationships are what matter, not where they office. I can drive to Denver to meet with reporters a lot easier than I can fly to New York to do so. I’m glad to have them on the ground there so I don’t have to be.
