Octopus Group is founder and lead agency of ION – the International Octopus Network.


We’re London based, but not London biased.

Established in 2007, ION is a global network of like-minded, independent, technology-focused marketing comms agencies.  

The ION advantage over wholly-owned networks is the quality of care and flexibility.  We treat each client’s needs on a bespoke, case-by-case basis, built on their specific requirements – giving them senior teams from trusted, owner-managed agencies around the world. There’s no one-size-fits-all when it comes to great international comms campaigns.

 Some clients just want to plug us into their existing agency network, whereas others want to work solely with ION at a global level. Whatever the model and scale, Octopus Group provides the relationships, reporting and content-rich campaigns to land your message internationally.
