We work with a broad range of companies, from network infrastructure providers and app developers to operators and consultants, and we’re a little ashamed to say that we’ve been to every iteration of what is now Mobile World Congress.

We build credible, compelling content to demonstrate that our clients understand and can solve the business and technology challenges that their customers face. We work to ensure that content is used across multiple communications channels – digital, media, analyst, events, and industry associations – to build the thought leadership and momentum that delivers commercial success.


Whether it’s generating sales leadsincreasing profile or building capital value for exit, , CCgroup has the knowledge, expertise and industry relationships to make your Mobile and Telecoms PR campaign a success.
