Local Planet: International media management by pilot

pilot is founding member of LOCAL PLANET, a global network of independent media agencies.

In close collaboration with some of the best independent agencies in the world we provide international media services to our clients.


As a network of independent media agencies LOCAL PLANET offers a genuine alternative to the global media holding groups.

The network covers agencies from more than 68 markets globally and is responsible for billings of $14 billion per year.

Some of the leading independent media agencies have combined forces with pilot. Among these are Horizon Media, the world’s largest and fastest growing independent media agency from New York or the UK’s the7stars, which was awarded “media agency of the year” two times in a row.

What makes Local Planet so special?


All partner agencies work together following a „local-up“ principle: Each media recommendation and implementation is developed at a local level and is merged in close cooperation to an overall strategy. This approach ensures that all individual characteristics of every single market are ideally taken into account.

Local Heroes

All member agencies have been successful in their markets for years. Many of them are among the fasted growing players in their local markets. Each member agency is owner-managed and offers top-management services in daily business.

Best of both worlds

Clients get the best of both worlds: independent agency mind-set, commitment and delivery for their business – alongside international capabilities, scale and systems of an international network.

How the network of independent agencies grows

At the traid fair dmexco 2017 our CEO Uli Kramer discussed with Local Planet-CEO Martyn Rattle the goals, archivements and plans for the future.
