CME Group Launches Global Advertising Campaign Entitled “How the World Advances”

Tue Mar 15 2011

CHICAGO, March 15, 2011 – CME Group, the world’s leading and most diverse derivatives marketplace, today launched a new global advertising campaign entitled How the World Advances. The campaign illustrates the role CME Group’s products and services play in helping businesses expand and world economies grow.

 

“Global commerce is quickly evolving and diversifying,” says Anita Liskey, Managing Director, Corporate Marketing and Communications. “The campaign demonstrates how CME Group helps market participants manage the risks they face, giving them confidence to grow their businesses no matter how challenging the environment. For example, agricultural producers can plant more crops the world needs by locking in future prices, transportation companies can deliver more goods by hedging fuel costs, and participants in international commerce can expand more securely by managing currency fluctuations.”

 

The campaign is being launched with a 30-second television commercial that will run on Bloomberg TV, CNBC, Fox Business Network and the Golf Channel (link below):
