Footnote: Agencies were contacted via the IPA and Association of

Business to Business Agencies (ABBA) at the end of 2003 and asked to

declare income, billings and number of accounts held, staff numbers and

what percentage of their income was business-to-business activity. Only

agencies with 75 per cent or more business-to-business income have been

included in this table.

** Income and billings for Banner Corporation and Ogilvy Primary Contact

are Campaign estimates.
