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. Zenith, owned by France's Publicis, forecast growth of 3.6 percent in North American advertising spending in 2017 and an average of 3.4 percent a year 2019. 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.

Publicis Groupe kicked off earnings season for ad holding firms with better-than-expected results that showed an improvement in its North American business.
France's Publicis 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.
Over the course of 30 years, French advertising and PR firm Publicis has achieved a lot with Maurice Levy at its helm, however, it wasn’t always smooth sailing.
The outgoing CEO of one of the world's most influential advertising agencies, Publicis, is not looking to retire anytime soon.
WPP (WPP.L) and Publicis (PUBP.PA) 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.
Spending on advertising in Britain is expected to decline sharply this year weighed by a slowing economy, rising inflation and political uncertainty, a leading forecaster said on Monday. Zenith, owned by France's Publicis, forecasted a 0.9 percent growth in UK advertising spending in 2017, down from 9.6 percent growth last year. It cited a slowing economy, rising inflation, political uncertainty following a snap general election and negotiations Britain now faces after its vote late June to leave the European Union.
