Group Sales and Marketing Manager Sandra King says she’s excited to be getting involved in an increasingly important regional event. “Again and again CEOs and MDs at creative and media agencies are telling me that creativity and collaboration across the Asia-Pacific region have never been more important.

“We’re passionate about our industry and are keen to support its ongoing development, and I strongly encourage New Zealand agencies to get their entries in – both for their young staff to our local competition, but also to the Spikes Asia Awards, to ensure New Zealand’s outstanding creativity and media acumen is recognised and rewarded.”
