OMNICOM Media Group Asia-Pacific has launched Airwave, a newly formed specialist business unit which brings together the strategic and activation capabilities of its agencies OMD and PHD in the mobile space.
It says in a statement that the new organisation of talent and partnerships will help drive market-leading data, targeting and experiential capabilities across the dynamic media and devices segments in the region.
