Just like every year the holiday season has passed in the blink of an eye and we're once again in January, fresh from the festivities, family gatherings, friends, food and parties. We're recovering and ready for fresh goals for the new year. For 120ADVERTISING this holiday season was a very exciting and eventful one. Now we’d like to reflect back on the amazing month that we had.
It all started on the 30th of November when we headed to Nicosia where Ecco shoes were presenting their new winter collection in collaboration with celebrity stylist Sophie Mouskou in an awesome event ‘Dress from the Shoes Up’. The event was attended by representatives from Dias media group, Fileleutheros media group, SPP media, Madame Lefo (another one of our awesome clients) and many more prominent media outlets. In addition we were happy to socialise with well known bloggers and famous online personalities. Sophie showed guests how to match their outfit from the shoes up and guests left with their very own Ecco wallets and coin pouches from the new collection.

On the 1st of December, after a good two months of work (and fun), over late nights, weekends, take-out and glitter (lots and lots of glitter), we finally unveiled our Christmas window displays. Given our new location in the heart of the old town, we couldn’t help but play our part in the holiday festivities. The windows were all custom designed, painted, glammed-up and lit by the 120ADVERTISING team along with Lina Stylianou, the visionary and lead creator of our Christmas decorations - thank you Lina.
Fast forward to the 7th of December, we glammed-up and headed to the Make-Up Studio’s ‘Glamour Cocktail Xmas Bash’, with Columbia Beach Entertainment Manager Valentin Raif on the decks, sparkling cocktails, make-overs and lots of fun. After weeks of working closely with the Make-Up Studio team on the event, we were very happy to witness a great turnout that filled-up the store. Our amazing models Mandy, Jennie and Nicole showed everyone exactly how awesome we can look when we get made-up by the the Make-Up Studio’s expert artists.

The 13th of December was a very special day for 120ADVERTISING! It was finally the day that months of planning had been building up to; the 120JingleMingle. Our Directors Loucas and Laoura are always itching to create something new and be innovative. In one of our team meetings we decided there’s more to office Christmas parties than what we have seen. We work with dozens of industries and meet people at all sorts of events, and we like everyone equally. 120ADVERTISING has a big extended family of clients, collaborators and friends in the industry. So, we went ahead and decided to bring our entire family together for a massive party which included closing down our street. Yes you read that right!
It's not hard to see how much fun everyone was having at the 120JingleMingle
Financial industry experts, shipping veterans, CEOs, managers, influencers and media representatives arrived at our office and enjoyed a street party like no other, complete with fire barrels lined up the street. Our guests were treated to Bavarian cold cuts, Roddy Damalis cheese platters, a chocolate fountain which amazed everyone (including us) and finger-licking treats (that we went on to enjoy for the next week).
German mulled wine was served fresh from the fire thanks to our great friend Marcus Kogel who shared his amazing recipe with our guests, along with beer and cocktails from the open bar and last but not least - we made it snow in the old town! As for the music, we were lucky to collaborate with LOST Promotions and Valentin Raif keeping everyone on their feet with funky-house music played by LOST co-founder and DJ, Markus Eden, followed by our good friend Mohammed Aladham.
We can still taste the decadent flavours of the tantalizing treats
Almost a month later we are still buzzing from all the fun we had with our awesome guests who included clients, friends, industry experts, distinguished Interior Designer George Petridis, celebrity stylist Sophie Mouskou, International Crypto Exchange Trade.io CMO Helen Astaniou and her amazing team, Conversion Pros and Token Target CMO John Lewis and Bloomberg/ CNBC globally renowned financial analyst Marshall Gittler among many other people we love and highly respect.

As the Holidays end, we have one last festive trick up our sleeves; announcing our 120Wishes competition winner! Maria Loizou will be getting any gift she desires up to 120 EUR, and that’s a wrap.
Even though we are sad to put away the Christmas decorations, we are super excited about all the marketing, advertising, events, creativity, clients, success and of course fun that 2019 will bring. Thank you to the best team any agency could wish for and every single person who has played a part in 120’s marvellous 2018. Here’s to a great year ahead for all of us.
