“This account will combine their PR-led work with support from our world-class creative and strategy teams – it is a model that is proving wildly successful for several of our clients,” Tony explained.

Special PR will handle media relations, influencer marketing, content creation, events and activations, and trade partnerships for Moët Hennessy New Zealand. They’ll also get design, art direction, and communications support from the wider Special New Zealand team.

Moët Hennessy, part of LVMH, was formed in 1971 from the merger of Moët & Chandon and Hennessy. The company includes 26 wine and spirits brands, many of which have been around for centuries, like Veuve Clicquot, Dom Pérignon, and Cloudy Bay.

This win highlights the rapid growth of Special PR. They now have over 15 practitioners in Sydney and Auckland, achieving this in under three years. Their work with clients like Jaguar Land Rover, DB Breweries, and Tourism New Zealand keeps them at the industry’s forefront.

Special PR was named agency of the year by Campaign Asia and the Public Relations Institute of New Zealand.

The partnership between Special and Moët Hennessy will blend their expertise and creativity to elevate the brand’s communication strategies, starting now.
