The Holmes Report, 12 September 2019
SINGAPORE — Weber Shandwick was been named as large Asia-Pacific Regional Consultancy of the Year at the Asia-Pacific SABRE Awards in Singapore last night. The agency fought off competition from fellow finalists BCW, Edelman, FleishmanHillard and Ogilvy, last year’s winner.
Weber Shandwick won the honour for the second time in three years after growing 8% in 2018, led by strong performances in China, Hong Kong, India and Japan, along with impressive expansion of its creative and innovation capabilities — all of which was reflected in a string of award-winning campaigns for clients.
WE took home the same honour among midsize firms in the region, ahead of other category finalists Allison+Partners, Ketchum, Ruder Finn and SPRG. The midsize independent delivered continued growth in China, India, Singapore and Australia.
