The firm will handle the summer dedication and pre-dedication events for the Dr. Martin Luther King Memorial in Washington D.C. Also, the firm was selected by the Army Historical Foundation to provide media outreach, public affairs and events counsel, and marketing services for the launch of the organization’s commemorative coins. Finally, the firm has re-upped with the Washington Ireland Program to provide PR and events counsel for “An Evening of Celtic Chefs,” which gathers Irish and D.C. culinary leaders.

Software company TIBCO has selected Horn Group as its AOR. Due to this previously unknown conflict of interest, the firm is no longer working with Yammer, which is now working with Ogilvy PR. TIBCO was working with Weber Shandwick, but is now partnered with that firm for UK work. [via PRWeek]
