Get Ready for Accenture Advertising Splash

Share this content

Get ready for one of the largest advertising campaigns ever produced for Accenture, the new and improved Andersen Consulting.

Executives plan to spend $175 million between January and March in a series of print ads in business-related newspapers, and on television with more than 6,000 commercials in eight countries. Many of the commercials will be broadcast during major bowl games and during the Super Bowl.

The $175 million budget is about $100 million more than Andersen Consulting's previous annual advertising budget, and the amount is thought to be unprecedented in the business-to-business world. Of major importance to Accenture is to stress the separation between Andersen Consulting and Arthur Andersen with a campaign built around the new name. The word Accenture denotes an emphasis on the future and is intended to sound like adventure.
