The World: Bangkok - McCann Worldgroup awarded Tiger Beer task

Asia-Pacific Breweries has awarded below-the-line duties for its Tiger Beer brand to McCann Worldgroup in Thailand.

The move brings to a conclusion APB's relationship with Leo Burnett/Arc Worldwide.

McCann was given the go-ahead after a pitch against Burnett and two other undisclosed agencies.

The appointment follows news that alcohol advertising is likely to face heavy restrictions in Thailand.
