With client service and strategic communication solutions at the heart of every partnership, dentsu X will drive effective solutions through five specialist capabilities; Labs, Ideas, Entertainment, Distribution and Digital.

Under the dentsu X brand, the team will uphold its reputation as the agency that clients trust to combine high quality client service and strategic communication capabilities, with insight experts possessing cultural and behavioural knowledge.

journey - further linking us with the global Dentsu Inc. brand. Under the dentsu X name, our clients will continue to benefit from our knowledge of the Australian consumer, combined with the leverage of Dentsu Inc's considerable innovation, technology and regional client relationships across the Asia Pacific region."
