IPG is a global company with offices in over 100 countries, including every significant world market.

We continue to invest and expand our presence in emerging and strategic geographic regions. The majority of IPG operations are based in the United States (U.S.), however, operations outside the U.S. represent a significant portion of our net revenues – approximately 38% in 2019. In recent years, we have made significant investments in Brazil, India, and China, further strengthening our position in these important developing markets.

In India, IPG’s operations are best-in-class, and we will continue to invest in partnerships and talent in this key market. IPG also holds a majority stake in the Middle East Communication Networks (MCN), among the region’s premier marketing services companies. MCN is headquartered in Dubai, with offices across 13 countries.

In China, IPG operates with most of our global networks and across the full spectrum of marketing services. We continue to invest organically in the talent of our agency brands and opportunistically acquire specialty offerings in this region.

Additional areas of investment include key strategic markets in North America, the U.K., Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Africa.
