Cannes Lions 2019: McCann Worldgroup wins Network of the Year

McCann Worldgroup took the Network of the Year honours Friday night at Cannes Lions 2019.

The agency said its China, India, Singapore, Philippines and Taiwan office all contributed to its point total, with a Grand Prix (and a Gold Lion) in Pharma in particular helping toward the title. Those wins also helped McCann Health to win Healthcare Network of the Year and McCann Health Shanghai to win Healthcare Agency of the year.

“We are delighted with the win and especially the role our China operations played in it with their Grand Prix," Charles Cadell, president of McCann Worldgroup Asia Pacific, said. "We believe in effectiveness and creativity. It’s great to be seen as best in both this year.”
