New York’s Chris Duffey recently spoke to the UK’s Advertising Health on trends within the industry, his experience talking at the inaugural Cannes Health Festival on Mighty Mobile, the rise of wearables, the importance of award shows, and other industry-changing topics.
Sudler is pleased to announce an initiative to create Open Source standardized website safety information components that are FDA compliant, responsive, and semantically-optimized to comply with both the FDA’s microdata format and Google’s Knowledge Graph requirements. The ‘Rx Promotional Standards Distribution’ will leverage Drupal and the Acquia Cloud platform to deliver significant operational efficiencies to pharmaceutical agencies and firms. The Distribution will be released in Summer 2015. More information about the project is posted on Acquia’s blog.
On Nov 6, 2014, Sudler’s in-house band, Late Night Car Service, performed a deadpan set of Hall & Oates songs at the seventh year of the industry’s night of house bands, Pharmapalooza. Appropriately to their theme of unappreciated sidekicks, they were awarded second prize in the competition. This is the fourth time in seven years the band has landed in the runner-up slot.
It was great to see almost half the band coming from within the Digital group at the agency – absolutely proof that we’ve truly “integrated”.
The event raises money for the Children’s Hospital at Montefiore.
Close Concerns writes: “[The] eye-catching booth was half corporate exhibit, half rustic outdoor vacation backdrop, with sleek white displays and furniture interspersed with wooden floors and colorful fabric. A model of a mountain road, complete with iPad-controlled jeeps that attendees could “drive,” was intended to symbolise [the brands]. This is very cool and very smart given how much men (not to be sexist) think about cars.”
