“The Media Store were highly engaged throughout the process, they took the time to truly listen and understand our challenges, turning them into exciting opportunities,” Melbourne Royal’s marketing campaign manager, Grace Usher, said.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with The Media Store to spread the word about our much-loved community event.”

The Media Store CEO, Stephen Leeds, added: “We love working with iconic brands at The Media Store so to have the opportunity to use paid media to tell the Melbourne Royal Show story is very exciting.

We can’t wait to get started!”
