The Hall Way
Liberté Egalité Publicité
THE HALL WAY is to look at every client as an individual. We believe that everyone has a right to have their story told, and we are proud to be the storytellers for such passionate and talented people as those whom we represent. Where other agencies see a dollar, we see a person; where others tell you to get famous first (to make their job easier), we say let's get famous together. Since 1996 when I founded the company with the late Sam Firer, we took an integrated and unorthodox approach to our campaigns. We realized early on that each client had his or her own strengths, and we structured our campaigns around them. It's not about what we've done for others, it's about what we can do for you.
We seek out opportunities; we don't just sit back and wait for the calls, we make the calls. This is how Hall PR became a well-respected global hospitality/travel/lifestyle public relations, branding, and consulting agency with affiliations in Tokyo with Office K2M, and in San Francisco with Andrew Freeman & Co., and that is also why we work closely with other PR professionals in the United States and abroad. For our clients, we open doors to the world.
At Hall PR we stop at nothing to get our clients the media exposure they deserve, and our cutting edge out of the box thinking has catapulted our clients to new heights in the media world. We are the eyes and ears of our clients and are constantly bringing our ideas to the table and collaborating on how to better achieve our joint goals.
At Hall PR we are proud to be the representatives for our clients to the media. From print and on-line to television and radio we cover all bases in our work. We are a supermarket of ideas for journalists and over the years they continue to come to us before others to seek information.
SOCIAL MEDIA & MARKETING INITIATIVES
As the world grows and changes, so does Hall PR. We are adept at supporting our clients in the world of social media and stay current in the constant changes the media world offers. We believe there is more than the written word to put "butts in seats" and "heads in beds". We come up with creative plans of social media and other marketing initiatives to help grow your business.
Born from restaurant and hospitality professionals Hall PR is often called upon to brainstorm about, and refine food service concepts. We offer our experience and know-how to growing restaurant and hotel groups who are seeking representation and concepts for properties as they expand around the globe.
CULINARY & FOH CONSULTING
Over the years the principals of Hall PR has advised hundreds of restaurateurs and chefs. Steven Hall always says "my palate has been trained by the best in the business, so take advantage of that" and having been a restaurant manager service comes naturally to Hall. We consult with our clients daily, are always a presence in the properties we represent, and give constant constructive feedback.
OVERSEAS LICENSING AGREEMENTS
Hall PR is associated with restaurant & hotel groups, cruise ships and other entities around the world that seek concepts for their clientele. We have been successful in bringing several hospitality clients together for long lasting partnerships.
Steven's experience goes beyond the service industry through strong connections and friendships with influential people in the press, hospitality industry and the tastemakers of this day and age. Steven was part of the burgeoning New York restaurant scene at the time when restaurants such as Union Square Cafe, Gotham Bar & Grill, Arizona 206 and An American Place were defining American cuisine. He enjoys creating exciting atmospheres and gets a great deal of satisfaction in giving a crowd the time of their lives in an environment he has helped conceive.
A full-time position at one of the first agencies that specialized in food and celebrity chefs propelled Steven Hall to go out on his own. Hall PR was born and within a few months the chefs and restaurateurs he'd practically grown up with were full-fledged clients. In 2006 Steven was introduced to the Asian market and the possibilities that awaited him there. He added business development to his long list of services and now works with Japan-based restaurant groups seeking to increase their portfolio of Western concepts; and with Japanese restaurateurs when turning their attention stateside. He facilitated the deal for the San Francisco restaurant A16 opening in Tokyo, and is instrumental in the development of Japanese imports to New York.
Steven is an avid jazz fan and theater-goer. When not in his or other restaurants, he can be found in one of NY's many music clubs, Broadway, Off, and Off-Off Broadway theaters. He is a supporter of the Public Theater, BAM, St. Anne's Warehouse, Lincoln Center, Broadway Cares, City Harvest, CityMeals-on-Wheels, and Share Our Strength.
Steven Hall is a valuable asset to any people-driven business.
