The bigger picture

We are BBN

Over a thousand B2B specialists – 30 countries – $172 million global billings – 300 clients in 23 different B2B sectors

BBN is driven by a passion for developing and sharing B2B marketing industry-leading processes, systems and intellectual property. Our core strength lies in our structured approach, underpinned by focused management.

Working together, our combined advantage means we significantly influence what can be achieved when a business talks to another business. We’re proud to stand for full-service marketing capability; spanning strategy, creativity, technology and implementation.

The BBN benefit is that clients get the best of both worlds. This means experiencing the creativity and personal attention of dealing with a locally based agency, while having the support of a large, international organisation. This combination delivers campaigns through the extensive reach of an international framework, coupled with the creative and entrepreneurial flair of independent agencies. This enables worldwide marketing strategies to be rolled out efficiently and effectively.

Meet BBN owner-managers

BBN is a collaborative agency-owned organisation, with every agency-partner an equity shareholder – all sharing the same genuine passion for B2B. Our collective knowledge and understanding of communications in the sector is almost impossible to match.
