Why sponsorship works!

“We are thrilled the AMEC Global Summit is coming to Asia for the first time.”

“As well as being the world’s fastest growing region, Asia is an early adopter for many new and emerging communications channels, in combination with an extremely strong and growing professional media landscape. Companies are striving to build communications measurement incorporating both new and traditional platforms into their business outcomes. The significant number of AMEC award wins from the region shows the high quality insight being produced in Asia.”

John Croll, CEO, Isentia

“Our decision to sponsor the Global Summit in 2016 allowed us to extend awareness of our own brand, generate leads and announce new products and services to the market.”

“We were also able to promote our current research and thinking on a global platform which helps us develop and influence the best practice of measurement and research within the industry.”
