If Don Draper were alive, the fictional hero of "Mad Men" would be in Cannes this week for the annual Cannes Lions Festival. This is the world's largest party (ahem…"festival") for the advertising industry . So what if the European Union is teetering on the verge of collapse- "faisons la fete" everybody…Let's Party!!

Slowly, Creative Directors at Israeli agencies have begun to win global prizes and enhance the collective reputation of the local industry. Now the major conglomerates, WPP, Publicis, Omnicom and IPG, are looking to Israel for creative hires. For example, this week Publicis Groupe acquired Israeli advertising and communications firm BBR.
