ADV Group is an advertising and public relations group of companies headquartered in Moscow.[1] It includes more than 40 advertising, marketing and PR agencies working in Russia and former territory of Soviet Union.


In 1995 Dmitry Korobkov [ru] founded the Adventa creative agency and soon signed an affiliation agreement with Lintas international communications network (Mullen Lowe Worldwide as of 2017). Then the Effect Media Company, which became a part of Initiative Media Worldwide, was founded. Later mr. Korobkov acquired stakes in several other agencies such as TMA and PRP and signed other affiliation agreements with Draft Worldwide, Weber Shandwick, McCann Erickson Worldgroup, Universal McCann, Momentum and others.

In 2000 ADV Group expanded to Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Belarus and later to Azerbaijan and Uzbekistan. By 2009 an agreement on strategic partnership with Havas International Group was reached, and Havas Worldwide Moscow agency opened in Russia.[2]

In 2015 Interpublic Group purchased the controlling share in Russian divisions of international creative agencies McCann (McCann Moscow), MullenLowe (LOWE Adventa) and FCB (DraftFCB ADV) from ADV.[3][4]
