Dentsu Queensland has won the Aveo Group media account, following a competitive pitch against eight other agencies.

The final three agencies in the running for the account also included Zenith and the incumbent, Sandbox. Billings are undisclosed, but believed to be substantial.

Our category is going through significant change at present and we expect the partnership with Dentsu to be of great benefit to us through the coming years.”
