Together’s Agency of the Year award recognises a year of digital achievement for the agency, with highlights including the launch of a CXM practice, the achievement of Google Cloud Partner status and significant headcount growth.

Best in Show accolade for “Roof ID” recognised the agency’s custom-built AI model to power unique media targeting for COLORSTEEL.

The IAB New Zealand Digital Advertising Awards celebrates innovation and effectiveness across the digital media advertising industry in New Zealand.
