Expedia Australia and New Zealand has today announced the appointment of its new creative agency, awarding the business to Sydney-based DDB.

“It is a very exciting time for Expedia and we are thrilled to be working with DDB as we head into what promises to be an exciting year for our brand.  DDB’s response to our brief, and their considerable experience within the travel category, confirmed them as the best partner for our business moving forward.”

Chris Brown, DDB Group CEO commented “We are delighted to be working with a great brand and a great team at Expedia. We handpicked a bespoke team from across the DDB Group whom we felt were best placed to deliver against this brief. The pitch team was brilliantly led by Leif Stromnes, Dylan Harrison, Nick Andrews & Simone Blakers, with fantastic support from a great team from across our business. We are very excited about what we can collectively achieve in 2013.”

Louise Crompton continued, “We would like to thank the agencies which took part in the pitch process, particularly BMF.
