AKQA named a Leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Global Marketing Agencies


For the third consecutive year, AKQA is positioned highest for its ability to execute and this year also for its completeness of vision in the Leaders quadrant of Gartner’s annual independent evaluation on global marketing agencies that we believe provides a competitive positioning of four types of technology providers, in markets where growth is high and provider differentiation is distinct.

The 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant position further demonstrates AKQAs ability to create world class brand experiences across all customer and employee touchpoints combined with robust creative capabilities and forward-looking strategies. By partnering with our clients we deliver solutions across marketing, products, services and physical spaces.

The 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant report provides insights that guide agency selection to help organisations seeking a partner for strategies and solutions.

About the Magic Quadrant

Gartner, the world's leading research authority, includes client testimonials in its assessment criteria. It defines Leaders as possessing “deep, broad capabilities across all competencies, most notably related to strategic services (which include business strategy and digital business transformation skills). Leaders implement comprehensive, effective solutions that leverage sizable investments in creative talent and marketing technology. They invest their own R&D dollars to set market direction. As a result, Leaders are the providers to watch in the ongoing evolution and transformation of marketing in a digital world. Leaders maintain a viable business, regardless of the global economy. Leaders extend their client relationships far beyond marketing promotions, often appearing on competitive bids outside their primary sector (for example, management consulting, product ideation and product development requests for quotations). Leaders help their clients develop digital marketing platforms designed for systemic growth and scale; they do so by harnessing their own significant expertise implementing digital marketing programs driven by data and analytics.”
