Book your place at Advertising Week Europe
Advertising Week Europe, taking place at BAFTA, is grounded in thought leadership uniting a broad cross-section of industry leaders from the client, creative and media community with the world of popular culture. The 2014 site, http://advertisingweek.eu/, is now live and registration is open. The IPA can offer its members a 30% discount - tickets can be purchased for £229.
Many IPA member agencies will be involved in talks and sessions throughout the week, including; Adam&Eve DDB, Aegis, BBH, BMB, Carat, Crispin Porter & Bogusky, Evidently, Grey London, Havas, IPG Mediabrands, Karmarama, Lowe Profero, M&C Saatchi, Manning Gottlieb OMD, MEC, MediaCom, Mindshare, OMD, Omnicom, PHD Media, Posterscope, Starcom MediaVest, UM, VCCP, Vizeum and ZenithOptimedia.
The IPA will again be providing extensive support across the week and will be hosting the dedicated agency stream in “The Underground” IPA Director General Paul Bainsfair will be acting as compere for the stream of agency thought leadership which will cover topics such as the business of an agency, new frontiers in media, storytelling and content and advertising superstars. As part of the Creative Pioneers Challenge, the IPA will host a ‘CountDown’ event on Monday 31st March 5pm-8pm with a final call for entries on what will be the last day for applications. Supported by Metro, the event will take the form of an Open House where school leavers can get to know more about the scheme, meet with the agencies, hear their elevator pitches, and if they haven't yet entered, get help to upload their video applications at the Metro photo booths. For the second year running a portion of the proceeds generated will go towards supporting the IPA’s Creative Pioneers programme.
In addition, Metro will be hosting an ‘Inspiration Series’ for 15 minutes each day where newcomers to the business will quiz top gurus. Creative businesses taking part in the 2014 Challenge will also be available to offer one-to-one chats about potential opportunities, and training providers will be on hand to offer CV advice and interview tips.
Paul Bainsfair, IPA Director General: “The IPA is once again looking forward to playing a part in bringing Advertising Week alive in London. This unique event will see talent, expertise, and thought leadership come together, the best and brightest from around Europe. We once again actively encourage our members to take full advantage of all this has to offer, and it could form a major part of any agency’s annual CPD requirements.
We are also very grateful to the organisers for their support with our Creative Pioneers Challenge – their allocation of a bursary fund to this initiative as well as Advertising Week Europe Executive Director Matt Scheckner’s appointment as one of our patrons will be invaluable.”
About Advertising Week Europe
The inaugural Advertising Week Europe was held in London in March 2013, bringing together the industry’s leading creative minds for a week-long celebration of talent and thought leadership. The Week is a hybrid of inspiring thought leadership featuring the world’s best and brightest with engaging special events that galvanise targeted constituencies. Advertising Week Europe draws from the client, media and broader cultural communities with a laser focus on key business drivers, which shape and influence the global industry. Advertising Week Europe was launched because of the overwhelming success of Advertising Week, New York, which celebrated its tenth anniversary in September 2013. The Week is produced by Stillwell Partners. Advertising Week will be returning to New York City for Advertising Week XI in September 2014.
