Marina Bay Sands taps Dentsu Singapore for media duties

The pitch called in August was one of the larger media reviews of 2013 and is estimated to be worth close to US$12 million. 

Dentsu Singapore has supported Marina Bay Sands since September 2011 and will now manage the integrated resort's business across Singapore, Southeast Asia and North Asia. MBS is also looking to increase digital initatives for destination and retail marketing.

Starcom and Mindshare previously handled the regional account.
