BCW, FleishmanHillard, H+K Strategies, Ogilvy and Weber Shandwick are the five finalists for 2020 Asia-Pacific Regional Consultancy of the Year (Large). Meanwhile, Archetype, Ketchum, Ruder Finn, SPRG and WE will contend for the same honour among Midsize networks in the region.
The Asia-Pacific Consultancies of the Year awards will again recognize the region's best firms across geographic categories and specialist disciplines. In all, 62 firms—from giant multinationals to small local specialists—are nominated across the 13 Consultancy of the Year categories. Exactly half of the shortlisted firms — 31 — are independent, with the other half comprised of publicly-owned networks.
The selections are the result of an exhaustive research process that PRovoke Media conducts at no cost to the agencies involved, involving more than 125 submissions and meetings with the best PR firms across Asia-Pacific. The in-depth analysis reveals that the region's firms are demonstrating remarkable resilience amid the Covid-19 pandemic, thanks to their track record of navigating geopolitical and economic challenges.
Consultancy of the Year winners are announced and honoured at the 2020 Asia-Pacific SABRE Awards, which takes place virtually on 24 September. Tickets will be available soon.
