Success Proven Solid as Grapevine Communications
Is Selected Again in "Top 20 Advertising Agencies in Southwest Florida".

Sarasota, Florida – September 14, 2006 – For the third year in a row, Grapevine Communications is pleased to be among the top 20 advertising agencies in Southwest Florida by the Tampa Bay Business Journal. The full service agency is holding steady in the top 15 positions of the listing, as determined by local billings. Only one other agency in the Sarasota/Bradenton area was included.

Grapevine Communications has experienced rapid growth and recognition since they opened their doors in 2002. The local advertising, marketing and public relations firm is fueled by an expanding client base, new offices, additional staff members, and the prestigious "2006 Young Business of the Year Award" by the Greater Sarasota Chamber of Commerce.

This is an exciting time for the company. In February, Grapevine Communications opened the doors of its brand-new building in Lakewood Ranch. The larger, customized space accommodates their expanded staff and allows for new growth.

"We are happy that the quality of our work continues to generate phenomenal success for our clients' business and ours," said John Fain, Grapevine Communications' Executive Vice President. "Even when the economy is receding in some areas, we are still going strong and have recently added more than half a dozen new clients to the company roster."

"The work Grapevine did was truly top shelf."
- James W. Greer, President, AE21 Incorporated

"The feedback on our trade show booth and design of materials was astounding! We receive constant positive feed back, even from our most direct competitor!"
- Debra A Livingston, ReEmployAbility, Inc.

"I just wanted to let you know how much we LOVE the Lauderdale One Sales Office. I especially like the lifestyle photos... they are much more fun and lively than just a photo with a border!"
- Meredith Kane Scott, Senior Project Designer, Compass Rose Design, Inc.

"Our team is highly creative and passionate about what we do," Grapevine Communications' President, Angela Massaro-Fain, stated. "It shows in our work, our relationships with our clients, and our place in the community. We are grateful to be working and growing in Sarasota."
