Attending the Awards, Alice Manners, CEO of IAB Australia commented: “The MIXX Awards honour both the exceptional creative and effective work globally, so our Australian agencies can be very proud of their efforts. There is no doubt we continue to punch above our weight as we consistently demonstrate the potential digital offers marketers to reach and move consumers.”
