“ANM Comms have worked with We Are The Fair and We Are Place Making for over a year now and we cannot fault them. They handle logistics, applications, understand brands and can appropriately pair with talent. Events can be time consuming and quite stress heavy especially as you get close to the activation date and the We Are Placemaking team always make it seem effortless and calm and take everything in their stride whilst getting things done. I cant recommend them enough.”
