The Peach State has kicked off a review of its tourism and economic development PR account, including its film office and tech-focused Centers of Innovation.
GolinHarris' Atlanta office is the incumbent. The budget for communications and PR has been around $650K for the past two fiscal years.
An RFP released May 5 calls for a single agency to support the Georgia Dept. of Economic Development's PR staff with initiatives to attract new business, expand existing industry, "inspire" tourists to visit, and "promote the state as a top destination for arts events and film, music and digital entertainment projects."
A one-year pact with four year-long options is planned. A pre-bid conference is slated for Atlanta on May 30.
Proposals are due June 6.
