Post-Cannes: Publicis Romania, first in CEE Publicis network, due to its Cannes results

Creativity, Festivals & Awards

The results at Cannes Lions 2016 placed Publicis Romania on the first place among Publicis offices in Central & Eastern Europe and 4th place worldwide, after Marcel Paris, Publicis Italy and Duval Guillaume Belgium.

I’m happy and proud of this results at Cannes 2016. It’s the best performance to date at Cannes by Publicis Romania and Nurun, and one of Publicis’ best in the world: in fact, our agency is now top 4 office worldwide – almost a dream come true.

Moreover, we achieved this with 3 different projects, all of which are contemporary digital and somehow experimental campaigns that push the limits of traditional advertising. I¹m particularly proud of the shortlists for Carrefour that I know were very close to transform into bronzes. This all represents a further step in solidifying our position as one of the top offices in the region and beyond.
