Cheil opens Amsterdam office

The Korean advertising agency Cheil recently decided to set up shop in Amsterdam. By establishing an office here, Cheil joins a group of leading advertising companies, such as Wieden+Kennedy, 180, KesselsKramer and Amsterdam Worldwide. Catalysed by a renowned pool of creative talent, proximity to clients and the city’s cosmopolitan atmosphere, the creative industry sector is flourishing.


This positive business experience is reflected in the success that Amsterdam-based advertising agencies enjoyed at the Cannes Lions Awards. This year, Dutch agencies represented 11 of the shortlist positions for prizes in the categories Cyber, Design and Radio. Tribal DBB Amsterdam is also nominated for five shortlist positions in the categories of Digital and Design. In previous years, many other Amsterdam-based advertising agency have been recognised with awards at the Cannes Lions Festival.
