Global Holiday Celebrations at Havas

‘Tis the season for creative cards and fabulous parties. Below are a few of the ways Havas celebrated the holiday season around the world this year.


Havas Drive

Stumped about what to get that hard-to-shop-for person on your holiday list? That’s why our Havas Drive team used cognitive technology to build Gifto, the gift genius. Just write in the type of recipient you’re shopping for, and presto! The perfect gift idea. Check it out here.


Havas Düsseldorf

Even the classic story of Christmas couldn’t escape a few revisions. In a rare archaeological find (that may or may not be historically accurate), the Havas Düsseldorf team managed to dig up original client feedback on a tale as old as time. Check it out here.


Havas Village Sydney

The Sydney team was formally invited to let loose at a Hamptons-themed holiday party via a champagne tower toast on the office balcony hosted by their three fearless leaders: Anthony Gregorio, Mike Wilson, and James Wright (all dressed in proper attire, of course).


Havas Canada

Our teams in Toronto and Montreal wished their clients peace, love, and happiness in the new year with personalized emoji magnets. Jealous? Enter for your chance to win a set here.



Havas New York

Ending the year on a high note (literally), our New York team leveraged IBM Watson’s cognitive technology to curate holiday playlists based on individual personalities. Get in the spirit of things with your personalized playlist here.


Havas Village Sao Paulo

As a way to pay tribute to Havas’s French roots—and just a great way to celebrate a successful year—our team in Sao Paulo hosted “Une Nuit au Cabaret” (a night at a French cabaret). Check out some of the night’s best moments below.

Havas Village Melbourne

To get into the holiday spirit, the Melbourne Village split into teams to compete in a series of fun challenges en route to the festivities at the local lawn bowling club. Among the creative tasks: the famous Mannequin Challenge. Check out Team Reindeer and Team Santa Hats below.


Havas Tribu

Our team in Costa Rica celebrated the holidays with a “Secret Friend” gift exchange, followed by a BBQ party with games and music in their backyard. (As you can see, they also had quite an inspired take on the classic Christmas tree.)
