CASE STUDY | Fontainebleau Miami Beach


For more than a decade, O&G served as public relations AOR for South Florida-based developer Turnberry Associates. In 2006, Turnberry purchased the legendary Fontainebleau Hotel and embarked on a $1 billion renovation. O&G was tapped to handle Florida PR and hotel trade publicity, and the Fontainebleau Miami Beach story quickly became one of the region and industry’s biggest (and, most challenging, as the renovation fell months behind schedule) stories.
