Diary: Sven Olsen's ready for EU, but his phone isn't

Keen to have its horizons broadened, Campaign gratefully picked up FCB's marketers' guide to the European Union's new members.

And what a mine of information it is. Want to know where to lunch your new Slovakian contact? No problem. Need to know the smartest place to stay in Vilnius? Well, it has to be the Hotel Narutis.

Wow! It seems like those FCB guys have left nothing to chance in their efforts to reel in all those advertisers. "If you're interested in doing business in the new Europe, call me. We are very much open for business," Sven Olsen, FCB Europe's client services director, writes in his introduction.

We'd love to Sven. Only problem is that the number you've given is unobtainable.

Shame. Bet you could have shown us a really good time in Riga.
