In particular it is great to see the inclusion of a stream dedicated to the business of media and marketing in Asia. We recognise the importance of building strong relationships with those in the region and feel Vivid Sydney is a great platform for this.”

The stream, to take place on June 6 at the Hilton Hotel in Sydney, begins with a showcase of the most innovative and intriguing work from the APAC region, presented by executive creative director of Whybin\TBWA Matty Burton. Burton was recently a juror for the prestigious Spikes Asia Awards.

Mumbrella360 is being staged in collaboration with Vivid Sydney, the annual festival of light, music and ideas held in Sydney.
