Midea engages DDB and McCann in China

DDB's Shanghai team developed an innovative and comprehensive business solution including activation and e-commerce, which "definitely goes further than an engaging creative idea", according to Su Rong, marketing head of Midea Air Conditioning.

Both appointments are annual contracts for a full year.
