Vancouver Convention Centre hires DDB Canada
The Vancouver Convention Centre has retained DDB Canada of Vancouver as its agency of record. The firm will promote the centre's renovations, which will be completed in March 2009. DDB will develop a new visual identity for the venue, as well as a marketing campaign consisting of print, direct and online materials.
