HiQ on shortlist for Eurobest

HiQ is as the only Swedish tech consultancy company on the Eurobest’s shortlist. One of the international advertising industries most prestigious awards.

“Superfun that we get noticed! To build brands today is a mix of tech and creativity. This is a perfect example of when we use our deep tech knowledge in combination with creativity to create something that makes the experience at LEGO House even more fun, and also creates attention. To be on the shortlist is really great, but we’re in for the win”, says Erik Ridman, Head of Communications at HiQ.

HiQ has been nominated in two categories for the work with LEGO House; Brand Experience & Activation (Touchpoint Technology & Tech-led Brand Experience) and Digital Craft (Innovative use of technology).

This is a good example of the result we make when we combine our deep technical know-how with creativity”, says Jerker Lindstén, Managing Director of HiQ Gothenburg.
