COA Selects JeffreyGroup as PR Counsel for 2022 COA Symposium & BRAVO Business Awards


Council of the Americas plans to hold the forums in-person in Miami on October 28, 2022.

Council of the Americas (COA) is pleased to announce the appointment of JeffreyGroup as its strategic communications consultant and public relations agency for the 2022 COA Symposium & 27th BRAVO Business Awards, scheduled for October 28, 2022, in Miami.

The COA Symposium is the Western Hemisphere’s premiere business conference, convening private-sector pioneers, entrepreneurs, influencers, and humanitarians, as well as government leaders and public-sector innovators. The conference will be held at the University of Miami Donna Shalala Center.

The BRAVO Business Awards are the preeminent honor for the Americas business community, recognizing the exemplary organizations and visionary individuals that create a positive impact across the region. The awards dinner will be held at the Pérez Art Museum Miami.

“JeffreyGroup’s pan-regional expertise and experience working with global brands provides a strategic intersection with COA’s mission to build and support a cross-sector community of leaders who share a common interest in advancing economic and social development throughout the Americas,” said Maria Lourdes Teran, vice president of AS/COA Miami. “We’re delighted to partner with one of the leading marketing communications firms in the region for this year’s efforts as we return to an in-person format for the COA Symposium.”

In November 2021, COA celebrated a successful return to an in-person format for the 26th Annual BRAVO Business Awards recognizing three socially-driven business leaders at an awards dinner held at the Pérez Art Museum Miami. COA is committed to continuing its long-standing tradition of showcasing excellence in leadership by bringing together the most forward-thinking leaders at a time when the business community is eager to engage in high-impact forums. In 2022, COA aims to raise awareness of its in-person events and attract attendees from across the Americas region.

“We’re honored and excited to support COA, which has long been a leading voice and nexus for innovation and advancement across the Americas,” said Brian Burlingame, JeffreyGroup CEO. “JeffreyGroup serves the same kinds of companies and organizations that align with the Council of the Americas, and we look forward to contributing our regional experience and capabilities.”

COA will work with JeffreyGroup to create the communications strategy and action plan, develop content, conduct media outreach around 2022 milestones, and provide media support for COA and honorees at the events.
