Who we are


We’ve always been creating Ad Hoc solutions for our clients.

Experienced reliability

Each client is assisted by a team of consultants with at least a 5-year seniority, directly supervised by one of the two founding partners or by a managing partner. By choosing Ad Hoc, you put yourself into well-experienced hands.

Careful and at your disposal

Our consultants will be next to you, anywhere, anytime.

Ever-present

Nowadays, communication has a global reach, still we cannot forget its local dimension. This is why we are able to create and develop communication projects focused on all levels: local, national and international.

Expert and versatile

We develop projects of integrated communication, defining the most suitable actions, tools and communication channels for reaching our clients’ targets.

Seriously innovative

Creativity has been used far too often as a smokescreen concealing the lack of ideas. Professionalism comes first for us: we start from a serious and well-structured approach and we then develop creative solutions for reaching our objectives.
