Agencies pitching for the Post Office advertising account expect to find out by Friday (3 October) whether they are one of the three shops selected for the final stages of the review.
The agencies involved are: DLKW Lowe, Engine, FCB Inferno, Ogilvy & Mather and Rainey Kelly Campbell Roalfe/Y&R. The incumbent is Dare.
The second stage for Samsung’s global ad review will be under way in the next two weeks. The company is in discussions with shops including 72andSunny, Bartle Bogle Hegarty, Cheil, CHI & Partners, Grey, Leo Burnett and Wieden & Kennedy.
Finally, pitches are about to take place for an agency to create an HIV awareness campaign. The client is a group of London councils that want to increase awareness and the number of people who get tested. A channel planning shop will also be appointed. The pitch is being run through the Crown Commercial Service.
