Diffusion has been named PR agency of record for tech startup ROOM. Diffusion’s initial campaign will spotlight ROOM One—a soundproof in-office booth that provides a private space for workers. The campaign will employ a series of creative activations, support for corporate announcements and an integrated product reviews program. Additionally, an ongoing media relations program will highlight the company’s founding story, its business model, the design element of its products and its vision for the future. New York based ROOM, which launched its first product in May 2018, ships direct to businesses, bypassing the need for resellers and distributors. “Our business model is all about paying for quality and nothing less, and Diffusion’s approach to PR echoed a similar ethos, making partnering with them an easy choice,” said ROOM co-founder Morten Meisner-Jensen.
