UKAEG Launches ‘Made Global’ Campaign

Posted in News, tagged with Advertising Association, Brexit, on October 1, 2020

The UK Advertising Export Group (UKAEG) of which the APA and many of its members are a part, has launched a new campaign to profile the country’s leading advertising and marketing service companies.
The campaign, ‘Made Global’ was produced by The Mill with strategy by adam&eveDDB and will be rolled out across international industry events this Autumn and Winter including Advertising Week 2020 and the British Council Virtual Festival which will run in both the UK and China.

Every company in the UKAEG shares the same collective ambition – to work together and show the world the UK is open for business. This message was pertinent when we were only dealing with Brexit, and with the impact of Coronavirus is even more relevant. The new commercials quarantine exemption will also help with these goals.
