ANALYSIS: Solid growth, growing experience

Though the region is diverse in culture and economic development, one thing united agencies across Southeast Asia—a focus on proving their effectiveness as a means to building lasting client relationships.

Leo Burnett took the regional Creative crown thanks to Gold awards in Malaysia, Philippines and Vietnam. The agency attributed its success to a more integrated approach and enhanced focus on data to provide real-time consumer understanding.

In media, Mindshare’s investments in digital products, such as a multi-screen planning tool and a content aggregation platform, carried it to Gold wins in Indonesia and Singapore, as well as Silver in Thailand and Vietnam and Bronze in Malaysia and the Philippines.

Digital agencies rallied around using technology not as an add-on but as a central way to build meaningful connections. MRM//McCann takes regional honours with Golds in Philippines and Singapore. Gold in the Independent Agency category ended up sprinkled throughout the region—Phibious in Indonesia and Vietnam, Cream in Indochina, VLT in Malaysia, IXM in the Philippines and CJ WORX in Thailand. The Secret Little Agency wins the regional award on the strength of its Gold in Singapore.

Leo Burnett Group Malaysia repeats as the PR Agency of the Year thanks to investment in social media, in-house content and video production, and talent development.

Experiential Marketing Agency of the Year went to the Secret Little Agency, which said 83 per cent of its output was experiential in nature. The Integrated Agency of the Year, McCann Worldgroup Singapore, recorded 86-per cent revenue growth, partly thanks to a user-experience lab.

The Specialist Agency of the Year, Leo Burnett/Arc Worldwide Malaysia, named an integrated dashboard and innovative social media tools as key differentiators introduced in the past year.

In People awards, the Philippines made a strong showing: Portia Catuira and Melvin Mangada of TBWA\Santiago Mangada Pun and Joy Santos of Leo Burnett Manila won awards, as did the Philippines’ native Lou Dela Pena of Publicis Singapore.
