Legoland Malaysia has appointed Mindshare following a media planning and buying pitch involving four agencies. The first Legoland theme park in Asia is set to officially open in Johor’s Iskandar development region on September 15. The park will be operated by Merlin Entertainments Group, the world’s 2nd largest visitor attraction operator.

 

The business will be run out of Singapore, and the S$296 million theme park will feature 7 themed areas over 76 acres with more than 40 family friendly interactive rides, shows and attractions.

 

“Mindshare won the pitch by being able to bring to the table not just a comprehensive plan, but an understanding of our brand uniqueness. In today’s landscape it’s vital for agencies to stay on top of trends that help brands be effective and cost efficient,” said Thilakavathy Munusamy, Director of Sales & Marketing, Legoland Malaysia.

 

Mr Munusamy added: “Our selection process was grueling and Mindshare demonstrated the best ability to serve a brand like Legoland.”

 

Renee Tan will be the regional director for the business, and she and her Singapore-based team will work with Mindshare Malaysia. “We are very excited about handling this launch and adding the brand Legoland to our portfolio,” Mr Tan said.

 

Speaking about the appointment, Mindshare Singapore, Managing Director Leela Nair said: “We are honoured and thrilled to be working with Legoland Malaysia. They are a unique business, and Lego itself celebrates original thinking. This is the perfect partnership for us, and we look forward to delivering break-through results for Legoland.”
