Rob Belgiovane, group chief creative officer at BWM Dentsu will join LIA's 2017 Creative LIAisons speaker line-up for the 6th annual program, taking place at Encore/Wynn, Las Vegas from October 4th through October 7th.
Prior to Creative LIAisons, Belgiovane will be in Singapore sitting as a jury member on the Spikes Direct/Promo/Activation jury. After LIA, he will judge Dentsu's Internal Global awards for all Dentsu owned agencies in Tokyo called Creative Link.
Says Belgiovane: "I have an intensive consecutive three weeks of teaching and learning what world class work is all about."
BWM Dentsu has had an impressive year so far scoring a Silver at AdFest, two Wood Pencils at D&AD, one SIlver and one Bronze at One Show, one Silver and one Bronze at Cannes Lions, two Bronze at Ad Star, one Silver at Clio Awards, 1 Gold at AWARD Awards and one Silver at 2017 Effie Awards.
Belgiovane will join other Aussie creatives Ralph van Dijk, founding creative director of Eardrum, Sydney along with Aussie expats Bob Isherwood and Jeremy Perrott, global chief creative officer at McCann Health.
Says Barbara Levy, president, LIA: "All of our 2017 speakers have one thing in common. They all believe that the investment that LIA makes in Creative LIAisons is an invaluable investment in the future of the industry.
"In an era when award budgets are being cut due to less revenue, LIA is proud that we can continue to provide the industry with this fully funded program; the opportunity to bring together the world's brightest minds from all corners of the globe in order to inspire, educate and exchange ideas with creatives in the top of the industry."
Creative LIAisons is tailor-made for young creatives in every sense, from the opportunity to meet so many young talented minds from around the globe, to learning from some of the most influential people in our industry, who will talk about issues and topics that concern young creatives specifically, to the mind blowing and rare opportunity of sitting in on a Statue Discussion, peeking into the judges' minds and witnessing a process that affects every creative in the world. It is a rare opportunity that young creatives only experience at LIA.
