  6. 6. New York TimesQuadrennial Effect Could Make12 a Very Good YearIt sounds like the title of a thriller by Robert Ludlum: "The Quadrennial Effect." Actually, it issomething that may make 2012 less of a nail-biter for media and advertising companies.The fact that several events that happen every four years will take place next year will stimulatethe media and ad industries, leading forecasters said on Monday, offsetting the detrimentaleffects of the European debt crisis.Events on the 2012 calendar likely to encourage more ad spending than this year include theUnited States presidential and Congressional elections, the Summer Olympic Games and theEuropean Football (soccer) Championship. Another stimulus could come from Asia, theforecasters said, as the Japanese and Thai economies recover from natural disasters."The strongest-ever quadrennial effect" is likely next year, said Vincent Létang, executive vicepresident and director for global forecasting at the Magnaglobal unit of Mediabrands, part of theInterpublic Group of Companies. numantra.comLink: 214.635.2300
