The agency collaborated with Ebiquity for their participation in the pitch.

Vladimiro Carminati – Country Italy Director of the company comments on the result of the pitch “After a relationship lasting many years with Media Italia we thought it was the time to look around to find out if there were other businesses which could better satisfy our needs.After an initial screening of the ten main companies in the sector, and thanks to the support from Ebiquity, we narrowed it down to a short list of four companies, which actually took part in the pitch. The work performed was all top quality and I must add that we were pleasantly surprised by such professionalism. Based on objective evidence from the ratings from the pitch and with the contribution of auditors, we decided to renew our partnership with Media Italia for the next two years.”
