KISS Communications has been appointed by networking organisation ERBI as its marketing partner. KISS will provide strategic, branding, advertising, marketing, exhibition support and web enhancement services to ERBI. KISS has also been chosen to provide support for ERBI’s annual conference (2-3 June 2010), the largest life science and healthcare gathering in Europe, and its Bench to Boardroom event which takes place in October each year. ERBI is a not-for-profit membership organisation for international life science and healthcare companies, focused on maximising the global growth and competitiveness of its members. With over 350 members, ERBI is based in Cambridge, UK, Europe's leading life science cluster, which has global recognition as a centre for life science excellence. Harriet Fear, CEO of ERBI said, “We saw several marketing communications agencies but KISS Communications stood out as the agency that had the best understanding of our brief and also understood the opportunities and issues facing our organisation and the sector. We were also impressed by the company’s pragmatic and creative approach to our needs.” Harriet continued, “These are exciting times for ERBI and the sectors we represent are pivotal to the UK economy. We are very excited about delivering against our mission, which is to maximise the global competitiveness of our members in the biopharma, medical device and diagnostic sectors.” Simon Fryer, Managing Director at KISS Communications is pleased to have been chosen by ERBI to work on such a range of high profile marketing projects. He said, “Being appointed to work with ERBI at such a critical time in its history is very exciting. There are so many opportunities both nationally and internationally for ERBI and having a brand identity and marketing collateral that will support them in achieving this goal is crucial to the organisation’s on-going expansion and success.”
