Agencies line up for Honda Motor Europe creative brief

Honda: incumbents are unaffected
Honda: incumbents are unaffected

Honda Motor Europe has opened talks with creative agencies about its advertising requirements.

The company contacted agencies two weeks ago with a through-the-line brief to cover 22 markets across Europe. It is understood that the brief does not affect the accounts currently handled by Wieden & Kennedy London and Mcgarrybowen. 

W&K created an ad in February to promote the Civic featuring Team GB climber Imogen Horrocks. The agency also works on the Jazz model. 

In 2015, Mcgarrybowen created a spot for the HR-V that showed dancers in a synchronised routine.

Honda appointed DigitasLBi as  its pan-European content agency of record in 2016, involving all models.

A Honda spokesman said: "We have no comment to make regarding any pitch process, but we look forward to continuing our long and fruitful relationship with W&K and Mcgarrybowen in 2018."
