Growth in North American advertising spending in 2017 is being lifted by Canada's buoyant economy and is outpacing growth in Western and Central Europe where Britain's political and economic uncertainty has weighed, a leading forecaster said. A slowdown in Britain would drag down spending growth in Western and Central Europe to 2 percent in 2017 from 3.9 percent last year, Zenith said, adding it expected average annual growth in the region of 2.6 percent to 2019.

France's Publicis (Paris: FR0000130577 - news) said on Thursday it regained a little traction in the second quarter, driven by a surge in revenue in its biggest regional market, North America. The Paris-based group has gone through an internal reorganisation over the last 18 months, dubbed "The Power of One", aimed at fostering greater cooperation between its myriad agencies and is strongly backed by the newly-appointed chief executive Arthur Sadoun. Sadoun, 46, replaced company veteran Maurice Levy last month and shocked the industry by announcing Publicis would skip all major ad award events for a year to focus on the creation of a sophisticated internal network, built by Sapient, the ad firm it acquired for $3.7 billion.

WPP (Frankfurt: A1J2BZ - news) and Publicis (Paris: FR0000130577 - news) said on Friday the world's biggest annual advertising industry conference in Cannes had become costly, too scattered and should return to its roots of solely promoting agencies' creativity. "Cannes has to change," WPP's chief executive Martin Sorrell told Reuters. "If we would be starting the concept again today, what would we do differently?" he added, saying he would prefer it if the conference took place in another city and at another time.

France's Publicis (Paris: FR0000130577 - news) said on Thursday it suffered less than expected in the first quarter from past losses on big U.S. media accounts, prompting it to see a recovery in the second half of this year. The world's third-largest advertising group said its underlying sales dropped by 1.2 percent over the first three months of the year to 2.33 billion euros ($2.49 billion), beating a Reuters poll of a drop of 1.9 percent. "Instability continues to prevail in the international environment, causing companies to proceed with great caution despite strong balance sheets," Publicis' chief executive Maurice Levy said.

WPP (Frankfurt: A1J2BZ - news) , the world's largest advertising group, cut its 2017 sales forecasts on Friday and its shares tumbled as a tough economic environment forced rivals and clients to fight over every dollar of marketing budgets. Martin Sorrell, the founder and head of the British firm, said clients seeking to drive down costs had made the advertising industry ultra competitive when bidding for new work, leading to contract losses from the likes of VW and AT&T (Sao Paolo: ATTB34.SA - news) . WPP, which employs more than 200,000 staff in 113 countries to support clients such as Ford and Unilever (NYSE: UL - news) , reported 2016 net sales growth of 3.1 percent, in line with forecasts, after winning 4.4 billion pounds of net new business.
Publicis paid a hefty price for its acquisition of ad firm Sapient on Thursday, with a 1.4 billion-euro writedown on its Publicis.Sapient arm pushing the French group to an annual loss and underlining the challenge for its new chief executive. The French advertising group paid a 44 percent premium for Sapient, a price that puzzled many investors and analysts when the $3.7 billion deal was struck two years ago after the failed attempt to merge Publicis with rival Omnicom in 2014. Thursday's total writedown of 1.44 billion euros casts a shadow over the legacy of departing CEO Maurice Levy, as the acquisition was meant to move Publicis closer to competing with companies like Accenture (NYSE: ACN - news) in digital consulting.

NEW YORK, Dec (Shanghai: 600875.SS - news) 7 (Reuters) - Interpublic Group of Cos , one of the world's biggest advertising companies, said on Wednesday that the U.S. Justice Department had asked one of its standalone domestic agencies for documents regarding video production practices.

Business circles remain optimistic about the future economic policies of U.S. President-elect Donald Trump, Publicis Chief Executive Officer Maurice Levy said on Friday. Levy also expressed caution over prospects for Publicis' fourth quarter, saying they were "rather uncertain", due to companies' reviews of marketing budgets at the end of the year. "Trump's election, following the initial surprise, was rather reassuring," Levy said in an interview on the sidelines of Morgan Stanley (Xetra: 885836 - news) 's Technology, Media and Telecoms conference (TMT) in Barcelona.
