Middletown, CT – Makiaris Media Services, an award-winning Connecticut-based media planning and buying service, is proud to celebrate 30 years as a leader in creating and implementing strategic, custom media plans for its clients.

To commemorate the milestone year, and in keeping with its tradition of giving back to the community, Makiaris Media will donate 30 food items per month to the Amazing Grace Food Pantry in Middletown, as part of a “30 for 30” drive. 
The media consulting agency will also be launching a fully re-vamped website and introducing a new logo and marketing collateral for its anniversary year.  The new website includes a more thorough description of the agency’s services, personalized photos of its management team and in-depth case studies of some of the agency’s many success stories.
