Adidas Switzerland now runs together with Statement


The Zurich agency for brand and consumer activation Statement supports Adidas Switzerland in the launch year of the new Boost models in the running category. The agency is responsible for the development of an urban running community. First implementations are already planned from spring 2015. "We chose Statement as additional reinforcement because the agency showed us creative and complementary ways and possibilities to the already planned classic communication", says Guido Mazzolani, Brand Marketing/PR Manager of Adidas Sport, Market Central.



Open Up communicates for Sectoral Asset Management


The PR and communications agency Open Up convinced the managers of Sectoral Asset Management, a company specialising in the management of investment strategies in the healthcare sector, as part of an agency evaluation. The company, which recently expanded its presence in Switzerland, focuses exclusively on investments in the healthcare sector. In order to achieve the targeted growth, it is strengthening its communications in Europe. The aim is to raise awareness of the Canadian-Swiss company and to convince potential investors of the approach and potential of healthcare investments. Open Up was engaged for this purpose.

The assignment includes the management of communication activities in Germany, the UK and Switzerland. While the implementation of media relations outside Switzerland is carried out by partner agencies, the Zurich agency is responsible for public relations in Switzerland. This involves, among other things, the media accompaniment of roadshows and the coverage of the topic via interviews and specialist articles. In addition to media relations, Sectoral Asset Management is launching an international advertising campaign, which is being developed and implemented by the Swiss advertising agency Blue Spirit. This will be launched in March 2015.



Wirz Wietlisbach Dialog smokes Winston in future


Wirz Wietlisbach Dialog has just won an interesting account. With Winston from Japan Tobacco International (JTI), the company will in future be advertising a cigarette brand that is one of the top brands in this market in Switzerland.

The collaboration is the result of a one-stage pitch, which the dialog experts from Uetlibergstrasse won last year. The fact that Wirz Wietlisbach Dialog is only now announcing the New Business success is due to the fact that the agency wanted to produce concrete results first.


These results include the launch of the "Winston Authentic" line extension and the "Blue Lights Igloo Nights" activation campaign. What both campaigns have in common is that they were conceived and implemented in a channel-neutral manner. In addition to personalized online and offline measures, all POS advertising materials were penned by the performance advertisers within the Wirz Group.
