Why have you decided to support the IAA Congress, which is to be held in Saint Petersburg, Russia, in 2020?

Communications industry is quite separated one. In each country, there are a lot of organizations, operating at regional and national levels. These are associations of advertising agents, advertisers, industry units for different media.

There are just few organizations, which support development of communications industry at global level. And International Advertising Association is one of the leaders in this field. IAA always attracts huge interest of marketers, as uniting one for the whole industry.

I believe that IAA Congress in Russia will help to present our industry at the highest possible level.
