Tag, the leading independent global marketing activation partner, has announced the acquisition of Popcorn Global, an end-to-end shopper marketing activation partner based in Melbourne, Australia which operates across Asia, North America and Europe.
Popcorn Global is a design-led shopper marketing activation provider with end-to-end innovative retail design and prototyping capabilities including expertise in designing both temporary and permanent displays, with a leading position in digital displays and content management. Popcorn Global’s clients include global brands such as Nivea, Super Retail Group and Coles.

Adding Popcorn’s best in-class in-store marketing capabilities to Tag’s existing marketing activation experience brings a powerful tool for both our consumer and retail clients.”
