FleishmanHillard was named large Asia-Pacific Regional Consultancy of the Year at the 2021 Asia-Pacific SABRE Awards — which took place as a hybrid event yesterday, attracting hundreds of virtual viewers from across the region, along with a smaller in-person group in Hong Kong.
The Omnicom PR Group agency fought off competition from fellow finalists BCW, Edelman, Ogilvy and Weber Shandwick.
FleishmanHillard won the honour for the first time in a decade, led by strong performances in China, Japan, Korea and the Philippines, along with impressive expansion of its healthcare, creative and corporate capabilities.
WE Communications took home the same honour among midsize firms in the region, ahead of other category finalists Allison+Partners, Golin Group and Ruder Finn. The midsize independent delivered solid performances across Australia, China, India and Southeast Asia.
In all, 66 firms, from multinationals to local specialists, were nominated across the 13 Consultancy of the Year categories. Full analysis of all finalists can be found here and the winners are listed below:
