LONDON—A new international network of independent PR firms has launched, led by eight agencies from across Europe.

GlobalOne Communications (GOC) includes  founding partners Oxygen (France), dimoso (UK), Alpha & Omega (Germany), LVT (Benelux), AEM Press (Portugal), Seigradi (Italy), 121 (Spain) and Tabasco (Poland).

The network marks a formalisation of relationships that have existed since 2010. It also includes associate partner agencies in other markets, and has a specific focus on technology clients.

GOC joins several other independent agency networks, all of which aim to provide multi-market services to clients. Rival offerings include PROI, PRGN, GlobalCom, Sermo and Ecco.

“ GOC’s strength is that the partner agencies have worked and grown as a team through our informal partnership of many years”, said Jacki Vause, director at dimoso. “Each partner agency knows that our individual performance reflects on the standard of the network as a whole. Our clients benefit from senior level expertise in the local market they wish to target and an exceptionally quick turnaround.”

"One of GOC’s clients is Distree, which organises executive-level tech events across the emerging markets of Russia & CIS, Latin America and the established markets of Europe and the Middle East.
