One Hope, One Quest

Well, well, well, here we are in 2011, and at FIX Ibiza , we are just welcoming the year ahead with open arms.
With the first of our New Year’s Resolutions already up and running- that is, the writing of this very blog, we are off to a good start.
And whilst my most cari darlin’ friend and business partner Elena Toga Sanchez has already given you the lowdown in Spanish on FIX as a PR Consultancy company, I guess it’s down to me, the other half-Jillian Maria Canney- to do the same in English.
In a nutshell, FIX Ibiza is the result of a chance meeting between two wee party animals on a random night out back in 2004. One of them(La Irlandesa) was DJing at the time- moi- the other(La Española) was jumping about like a bloody lunatic to an all time classic, Roots Manuva’s ‘Witness the Fitness’. And there it was, the tune that brought us together.

It was to be the start of a beautiful friendship, one which went on to culminate in the Fix Two running their own party- GIRLZ SKOOL- for several years in venues across Ibiza and further afield.
But then, the time came to get really serious, and we decided to take our cojones in our hands, metaphorically speaking of course, and set ourselves up as a legit PR &Events company. The culmination of our work experience until that point seemed to suggest that many of the necessary ingredients were already in place for such a mission- now, all we needed was the business acumen.
I had already been working for our first client- Ibiza Rocks-for a few years when we took the plunge to set up FIX and it was with great pleasure then, that the live music brand became the very first project that we got our teeth stuck into.
As far as that one goes, and since that time, we have managed the PR and Communication for Ibiza Rocks, placing it firmly on the media map as the island’s most talked about brand. As part of our role within that, we have also successfully managed to convince the local authorities that here was something that could help turn around the press-led negative image of San Antonio, the town in which the events take place.Time went on to prove just that, culminating in the San Antonio Town Hall selecting Ibiza Rocks as one of two of the most interesting offers to be showcased at the recent World Travel Market in London. No mean feat. We’re very proud!

Since those early days, our client-base has steadily increased, working with not only local brands but also with those from U.K and further afield whose end game is to have a presence on the island of Ibiza.
Amongst other campaigns and/or events that we have rather successfully managed, we can quote XBox, MTV, Mallorca Rocks, Manumission, Pure Form, The Barefoot Doctor, Carl Cox & Friends, Urban in Ibiza, Ibiza Town Hall, Sant Joan Municipality, Guru Josh Art, Dance 4Life, Can Rich Hierbas Ibicencas, Joves Empresaris, EarthDance/EarthRun, Ibiza Music Cluster and Casas Rurales de Sant Joan. Amongst a few….

So, three years down the line and we are rather pleased with our progression. And as we storm, PR guns a blazing into 2011, we can only hope that that progression continues to develop at the happy pace in which it already has.
We hope that, through this blog, we can begin to show you the real Ibiza Uncovered- and believe us that will be nothing like the old one!
Stay Tuned, Fixies!
