Zapwater Communications is an award-winning communications agency with offices in Chicago, Los Angeles, and Miami. The brands that we serve center on five primary lifestyle categories, including fashion/beauty/retail, consumer, real estate and design, travel, and hospitality brands.
Zapwater has won over 250 of the public relations industry's biggest awards, a number that goes unmatched by small and midsize agencies in the United States. In addition, PRWeekThe Holmes Report has named the agency a finalist for "Creative Agency of the Year – North America."
In 2019, Zapwater acquired Cheryl Andrews Marketing Communications (CAMC), South Florida's largest full-service public relations firm specializing in the travel and tourism. Their high-profile client roster spanned Florida, the Caribbean, Latin America, and beyond, and is the ideal match with Zapwater's existing accounts and areas of expertise.
As a full-service agency, Zapwater services include media relations, influencer marketing, event management, strategic partnerships, trade communications, crisis communications, and social media.
Zapwater is proud to be a founding member of the Travel Lifestyle Network (TLN), an international network of independent, like-minded marketing communications agencies.
