The world’s B2B agency in
Asia Pacific (APac) is a geographically expansive and populous region characterised by social and cultural variation. This influences the way people communicate, and each of the markets in APac has their own way of conducting business and maintaining relationships.
Therefore BBN APac will focus on providing clients in APac a comprehensive offering of marketing communications services, ranging from visual content creation and social media campaigns to brand engagements and large-scale events.
We recognise it would be impossible for one single agency to have all the answers.
This is why we have set up BBN APac along with our regional partners with the aim to be the organisation that enables the collaboration of agencies to help international clients and partners better understand Asia. In doing so, companies can more effectively market their products and services in and out of the countries that make up the region.
BBN APac is a collaborative effort between our partners Fifth Ring, INL, ImpactM, GetIT Comms and McCorkell. These partners offer combined specialist knowledge in several key industry sectors: energy, property, financial services, IT & technology, healthcare, education and marine engineering.
