Advertising Week crosses the globe with events in New York, London, Tokyo, Mexico City, Sydney and Johannesburg.
Advertising Week is globally built on a foundation of inspiring and forward thinking thought leadership. It is on the AW Stages that agendas are set for the following year, competitors come together for debate and discussion, and cultural icons re-inspire the industry. With over 75 seminars and workshops, the content at #AWEurope goes deep into topics, trends and of-the-moment issues that are critical to our audience.
Our 40-minute thought leadership sessions run throughout the week across dedicated stages in front of a captivated audience. Learn from industry leaders, brands and agencies as they shape a conversation around timely and topical subject matter.
These are 10-minute, quick-fire presentations delivered by an SME (Subject Matter Expert). Discover Talks dive into a specific subject, case study or research finding.
Deep Dives offer an informal Q + A style, conversational chat; a chance for a smaller audience to ask their most probing questions to industry stalwarts.
