Progressive technologies, mobile and social listening have allowed us to become even more connected with our consumers. It is our desire for Rapport to create a competitive advantage for advertisers, and the launch of Rapport Malaysia clearly reflects this ambition, placing us at the centre of strategic OOH planning for clients.”
