On March 1st, 2013, leading Utah advertising agency, Advent Creative merged with the notable New York agency Davis & Partners Worldwide to create a whole new entity called Advent Integrated. The new Advent will be headquartered in the historic Emporium building in beautiful downtown Logan, Utah in the heart of Utah’s scenic Cache Valley.
The merger combines Advent’s award winning strengths (interactive marketing, design, software development and broadcast creative) with Davis & Partners’ proven expertise (strategy, real-time media buying, social media, PR and, private equity). The D&P global network of allied independent companies will now be called The Advent Alliance. Advent will operate The Advent Alliance offices in principal cities and markets around the world including the New York metro area, Sao Paulo, Brazil; Manchester, England; and Bangkok, Thailand.
Davis & Partners was founded as Life Ventures in 2004 by internet marketing pioneer Jamison Davis. Jim got his start in interactive as Executive Creative Director of the first global digital agency network, Modem Media (later absorbed into Publicis). Following Modem Media’s successful IPO, Davis founded Life Ventures, which spun off the affiliate commerce company Lemonade (voted the #1 site on the Internet by Time magazine in 2007) and subsequently changed its name to Davis & Partners.
The recently opened Salt Lake City building on 21st South in Sugarhouse will serve as an executive office, video post production, and conference facility.
