Public Health England’s pitch date for its sexual health awareness brief is on 24 April. Creative agencies on the government roster are able to compete.

Swiss luxury-goods company Richemont held pitches this week for shops vying for its global media business. Publicis Media holds the account – which spans Europe, North America and Asia-Pacific – and is repitching.

Brand USA, the US tourism marketing organisation, is on the hunt for an agency to help boost visitors amid a "Trump slump". Submissions for the $1m marketing and PR account are due on Friday, with pitches in the first week of May. Tourism revenue has dropped by $185m since President Trump implemented his first executive order banning citizens of seven majority-Muslim countries from visiting the US, according to the Global Business Travel Association.

Sunny, the short-term lender owned by US group Elevate, is meeting media agencies this week as it looks to appoint a shop to handle its £7m account.

Carpetright has yet to decide the victor in its media review, despite agencies expecting an answer last week.
