Paramount ANZ will commence the first in a series of intimate 2024 Upfront presentations this week, kicking off on Tuesday in Sydney.

The Upfronts presentation will then head to Melbourne on Friday 27th October, followed by the rest of the country for other similar events in front of a small group of Paramount’s clients, agencies and partners.

The smaller events are a departure from previous large scaled events, such as last years presentation which was held at Sydney’s ICC Convention Centre which marked the return to a in-person event after they were moved online due to the pandemic, and follow a recent similar style to that of their parent company in the USA of smaller tailored events.
