Ava Rose Agency presents a confident, polished approach at marketing products and services by getting the word out to well-respected, recognizable industry leader so that the message is immediately impactful and welcomed then shared amongst their entire network of influencers. Testimonial "Local PR is largely ineffective these days as few tourists read local publications and social media has fragmented the audience into a million niches. What is important to a Strip resort and its operators is connecting with influencers who interact with guests to sell products and experiences. That group remains the city's trusted concierges and the Ava Rose Agency understands them."
