Community relations commission for a Multicultural NSW (Multicultural NSW), CEO Hakan Harman said the calibre of the Awards showed serious marketers were delivering campaigns that considered and reflected the diversity of the entire Australian community. With consumers having an estimated $80 billion dollars to spend, targeting this market is something businesses can't afford to ignore.
