BBDO ON TOP OF THE WORLD
This morning, Advertising Age named BBDO as its U.S. Agency of the Year, and Adweek named BBDO its Global Agency of the Year. Three weeks ago, Campaign in London picked BBDO as its Advertising Network of the Year. It was a huge 2005 for BBDO, winning 21 individual Agency of the Year awards around the world, and two Global Agency of the Year Awards. An extraordinary achievement, and an industry first.
The Mayor of New York City, Mike Bloomberg, has put an extra cherry on the cake by officially proclaiming that today, January 10th, is "BBDO Day". This is the first time an ad agency has received such an honor from a New York mayor, according to the agency.
"For more than a century, BBDO has worked diligently to keep our city economically and culturally dynamic," wrote Mayor Bloomberg in the proclamation. "New York City joins the advertising industry in honoring BBDO as agency of the year."
