Dittoe PR Takes On Swell of New Wisconsin Clients

2019 has gotten off to a great start for Dittoe PR, as we recently added two new clients to our roster – and they both happen to be based in Beloit, Wisconsin! In January, we kicked off partnerships with Geronimo Hospitality Group, the hospitality team behind award-winning boutique hotels, restaurants and clubs in Wisconsin and Indianapolis, and Beloit College, a private liberal arts college and the oldest continuously-operated college in the state of Wisconsin.

While we will be developing and executing very different PR strategies for these two clients, our mission is the same: to proactively shape narratives that influence behavior and invoke change.

Geronimo Hospitality Group
Geronimo Hospitality Group owns and operates seven restaurants, four hotels, two golf facilities, two fitness centers and one event center. The properties are located in Beloit, Delafield and Janesville in Wisconsin and Indianapolis.

We first began working with the Geronimo team in April 2017, tasked with promoting and securing media coverage surrounding the grand opening of Ironworks Hotel Indy. Our partnership has lasted long beyond the hotel’s grand opening, and our team has since worked on a variety of projects to keep Ironworks Hotel in the news consistently, including media relations, content creation, social media operation, event planning and more. Ironworks Hotel has been covered at the national, trade, local and regional levels through our various media relations efforts, which include events, retail tenant updates, seasonal happenings at the hotel and much more. We also oversee all social influencer relations for the hotel, working with local and regional influencers to help promote the hotel and its unique amenities.

In the last year and a half, we have worked to develop strong personal relationships with both the Geronimo Hospitality Group team and Ironworks Hotel Indy staff, which has enabled us to secure consistent, ongoing and impactful media coverage for the hotel in outlets such as the Indianapolis Business Journal, Indianapolis Star, USA Today, Condé Nast Traveler, Hotel Business and many others.

Going forward, Dittoe PR will manage public relations for all 16 of Geronimo’s properties, including their boutique hotels and restaurants throughout Wisconsin. A few of the Beloit establishments we are focusing on in Q1 include Hotel Goodwin, Velvet Buffalo, truk’t and Ironworks Golf Lab. Our team will also continue to oversee media relations efforts as needed for Ironworks Hotel Indy.

Dittoe PR’s top priorities for Geronimo Hospitality Group will be to generate media and social influencer coverage that leads to increased exposure and brand awareness of its properties so the local community and residents in regional cities and neighboring states keep Geronimo’s hotels, restaurants and clubs at top of mind for lodging and dining options.

The Geronimo team is made up of extremely talented, creative and hardworking individuals and we are proud and excited to grow our partnership with them in 2019.

Beloit College
Since its founding in 1846, Beloit College has been committed to providing students with a cutting-edge curriculum and has shown a continued dedication to innovative and experimental curriculum practices. In fact, Beloit College is often cited as a “Best Value” in higher education, and was ranked No. 19 on U.S. World & Report’s list of “Most Innovative Schools.”

As an institution, Beloit College prides itself on meeting students where they are and imagining futures for them that they may not have yet considered. The college offers students a multidimensional approach to higher education that focuses on personal, academic and professional growth.

Media relations and thought leadership will be the heart of our PR strategy for Beloit College. We want to generate consistent local, trade and national media coverage for Beloit College to increase awareness of the school, its unique experiences and world-class educators, and the benefits of a liberal arts education.

Our team is beyond thrilled to lead media relations, influencer relations and thought leadership efforts for Geronimo Hospitality Group and Beloit College.
