Eurostar to take on BHWG Proximity for pounds 3m direct account

Eurostar is to appoint BHWG Proximity to handle its pounds 3

agencies involved in the early stages included Tullo Marshall Warren,

TBWA/GGT and Lowe Live.

The task for BHWG is likely to involve targeting customers with offers

and information on Eurostar services. It will also test Eurostar's

existing loyalty scheme while Carlson Relationship Marketing Group will

continue to work on systems development and processing the loyalty


Rapier was the incumbent on the direct marketing.

BHWG's appointment follows that of TBWA/London to handle Eurostar's

pounds 15 million pan-European creative account. Its first campaign,

featuring John Malkovich, was launched last month.
