The World: Beijing - Mediaedge:cia wins Reebok China media account

Reebok China has handed Mediaedge:cia its media planning and buying account as the sports manufacturer attempts to win a 20 per cent share of the $500 million Chinese sports-shoe market. MEC will handle all channel planning and implementation and will also handle tasks that go beyond basic media planning and buying.

In 2004, Reebok signed a sponsorship deal with the Houston Rockets' Yao Ming (pictured), the Chinese basketball player who was sponsored by Nike in his first NBA season.
