- Master Plumbers’ Association of Queensland hires MediaSmiths
- Multichannel campaign kicking off shortly.
The Master Plumbers’ Association of Queensland (MPAQ) has appointed MediaSmiths to handle offline and digital media, and will launch the partnership with a multichannel campaign warning of the dangers of hiring an unlicensed plumber or gasfitter.
The campaign will also urge people to use MPAQ’s ‘find a plumber’ search tool, an area where tradie platforms such as Hipages have found significant success via major media partnerships.
We’re excited to create campaigns that promote the use of licensed plumbers, drainers, and gasfitters,” said MPAQ Executive Director, Penny Cornah. “A lot of people don’t realise that most plumbing, drainage, and gas work must be completed by someone with a licence, and not doing so may lead to your insurance being voided or dodgy work being performed.”
The MPAQ appointment comes on the back of recent client wins for MediaSmiths, including national homecare provider Just Better Care, the Australian Dental Association, and Odoo.

In the third instalment of VMLY&R’s value series, he says brands that move last will be remembered – negatively. And those that understand ‘value’ as being a holistic, long-term relationship with consumers – like Patagonia and New Balance – will help reimagine marketing thinking. People are already voting with their wallets out of principle, identity, and survival.
There’s an unfair image of Millennials out there that paints them as poor financial managers, economics journalist Jess Irvine says. But they’re hungrier for information and advice than any generation before them. Despite this, a new survey from Nine has found that they’re becoming less sure of themselves. And with more than seven million Australians aged 18 to 39 set to inherit $320,000 each over the next 20 years – that’s $3.5 trillion in total – the brands that share smart information that doesn’t oversimplify things can help these Millennials – and themselves.
