Beaujolais times two – 28.11.2002
Due to the NATO Summit many companies decided to push this year’s Beaujolais celebrations from the third Thursday to the fourth. Advertising agency Euro RSCG chose the traditional environment of Chez Marcel, so that guests could feel they were hundreds of kilometers away, celebrating in the middle of Paris.
