The World: Santa Clara - OMD, Universal and Starcom battle for Intel

Intel, the Santa Clara-based chip manufacturer, has shortlisted OMD, Starcom and Universal McCann, its incumbent agency, to battle it out for its $300 million media business.

The company called the global review last month, and has already removed ZenithOptimedia and Mediaedge:cia from the longlist.

The pitch is scheduled to take place between 4-7 April at the company's Silicon Valley headquarters.
