BCW, FleishmanHillard, Edelman, Ogilvy PR and Weber Shandwick are the five finalists for 2022 Asia-Pacific Regional Consultancy of the Year (Large). Meanwhile, Archetype, Golin, Ruder Finn, Sandpiper 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, 68 firms—from giant multinationals to small local specialists—are nominated across the 14 Consultancy of the Year categories. Almost two-thirds of the shortlisted firms — 40 — are independent, with the rest 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 a remarkable recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic, thanks to their track record of navigating geopolitical and economic challenges, and a heightened focus on workplace cultures and mental health support.
Consultancy of the Year winners are announced and honoured at the 2022 Asia-Pacific SABRE Awards, which returns in person to Singapore on 13 October. Tickets are available here.
