In Malaysia, OPPO appointed LEWIS as its PR agency last year. This saw the agency leading all public relations initiatives as part of a large-scale marketing effort by OPPO. The agency was also tasked with collaborating, devising and implementing a range of campaigns aimed at building awareness and positive brand reputation for the fast growing mobile brand.
OPPO also came on board as a presenting sponsor for Singtel TV's Premier League 2017/2018, together with Income and Chang Beer. This was in a bid to reach out to Singtel TV’s large audience via targeted advertising and media platforms.
The past year also saw the mobile phone brand partnership with fashion brand Victoria’s Secret for its annual fashion show in Shanghai. It was also the first time the pageant was hosted in Shanghai, according to a press statement at the time.
