EFFIE SLOVENIJA 2O18 HAS NEW LEADERSHIP: BARBARA MODIC (PRESIDENT) AND MARJANA LAVRIČ ŠULMAN (TRADE DIRECTOR)
Under the new president Barbara Modic, director of Pristop Media, and new trade director, Marjana Lavrič Šulman, brand management and marketing consultant, Effie Slovenia 2018 will once again seek and reward the most important achievements in market communication and offer numerous opportunities for industry development.
Barbara Modic: “The Effie Award is the most prestigious award that focuses on proven effectiveness in marketing communications and I’m pleased to be able to actively support the actual implementation of the awards as president. This time, besides competition, which will continue to be of major importance, we will also take care of quality educational events with recognized international and domestic speakers. Together we will expand the knowledge that will certainly contribute to the further development of the profession in Slovenia.”
Marjana Lavrič Šulman: “In leading the Effie Slovenia 2018 I gave myself three tasks: first, to ensure the quality of educational content and to renew the Effie mission roots – Effie represents ideas that work, which means that the focus cannot be just on metrics results, but the ability to reward should also be brought closer to smaller advertisers who typically can’t conduct measurements in such an integrated manner as larger advertisers.”

SEÑOR MOVES TO NEW ADDRESS
The reign from Višeslavova street has come to an end! Since Señor agency staff love to be in the center (of attention), they found new offices in Kumičićeva 10.
Making the new location cozy was the task of the young and award winning architectural firm Biro, which together with them chose every detail of the new office.
But don’t just stand at the door, click on the link and come into the FB or Behance gallery. Or better yet, drop in for a coffee, Señor’s casa es su casa! (And yes, they really do have a cinema!)

UK AD INVESTMENT TO GROW 4.8% IN 2018 DESPITE ‘FRAGILE’ ECONOMY, PREDICTS GROUPM
The UK advertising industry is set to see its ninth successive year of growth in 2017 with investment tipped to increase by 4.8% in 2018, according to GroupM.
The forecast comes despite a series of headwinds throughout the year – including concerns around digital advertising, the impact of Brexit on the economy and slowing client spend – which saw revenues drop at the UK’s biggest agency holding companies.
In fact, GroupM has predicted that 2017 will conclude better than expected, with investment totalling £18.9bn (5% growth, up from the 4.1% earlier predicted). In 2018, a 4.8% predicted increase will take total investment to £19.8bn.
