Emakina is now present in 16 countries on 3 continents and continues to invest in integration within its network.

In a context heavily impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, the group moved up a gear in developing its e-commerce services, with the implementation of multiple online commerce platforms to enable clients to ensure their business continuity.

Many new national and international clients chose an Emakina group agency as their partner.

Emakina Group’s management maintains its forecast of a single-figure impact on the consolidated annual income in 2020, given the volumes of work on projects in progress and the commercial indicators. High-performance video conferencing and online collaboration tools have made it possible to ensure the continuity and quality of services despite the lockdown.
