Our Story

LRA was founded in 1982 as a publicity, promotion and marketing company focused on the hospitality and restaurant market. Our expertise is built from a shared passion for our work, which has expanded from hotels and restaurants to include travel companies, retail brands, large scale consumer events, associations, non-profits, and more. Our legacy of clients and accomplishments is built on a reputation for earning impressive local and national publicity, and an innovative, contemporary approach to marketing.

Based in Washington DC, our agency is a one stop shop for thoughtful planning, creativity, organization and most important, results. We coordinate strategic communications programs and remarkable events, boosting sales and building awareness for brands, products and services of all sizes.

We pride ourselves on having a keen understanding of the dynamic relationships that exist between our clients, the media that covers them, the businesses who supply them, and the consumers they serve. Our monumental knowledge of the people and pulse of the industries we serve produces strategic campaigns that are second to none.
