Why we’re different

Publitek has been a pure tech B2B marketing agency for more than 20 years.

Most of our executives are engineers or scientists, which means that we really understand technology buyers: what they value, where they look for information, the content that appeals to them, and how they make decisions. As a result, we’re able to create effective tech B2B marketing campaigns, including deeply technical content that enhances your valuable strategic, product and engineering resources.

We invest in people rather than premises, brains rather than bricks, because it’s experience, knowledge and talent that creates real value for our clients. We bring a strategic expertise that helps you clarify your goals, value and opportunities. What’s more, we’ve developed some of the most advanced digital resources of any B2B technical agency, enabling us to precisely target your messages in a timely way. That’s how we achieve the outstanding results that are so valued by innovative start-ups and blue chip companies alike.

And as a member of the Next 15 communications group, which employs over 1500 people in 14 countries, we offer a cost-effective global service or just a great local one, whichever you need.
