URBAN Co-Founder and Director, Gavin McDonough, said: “Whilst experiential marketing may have taken time to permeate here in Australia, it’s now a critical part of the marketing mix. Due to this, the most effective experiential agencies are truly multi-disciplinary, strategically led and digitally proficient. It is this market expectation that has allowed forward-thinking businesses like URBAN to flourish and take on purely digital opportunities like that with iNova.”
