Other wins included 3 Gold, 3 Silver and 3 Bronze Awards, making MEC the most awarded media agency of the night.

Alastair Aird, MEC global COO and head of MEC’s newly launched content offer MEC Wavemaker, commented, “This is just fabulous news and a huge endorsement for the MEC Wavemaker team in the Middle East.  These wins are proof positive that our approach to creating content is the right one; it’s specifically designed to make change happen – and measurably improving a brand’s performance. This thinking is the root of the MENA team’s success. And I couldn’t be any prouder.”
