2013 sees second year of seminars to be held during award judging in Las Vegas

LIA ‘Creative Conversations’ Speakers Announced

London International Awards launched the ‘Creative Conversations’ programme in 2012 as a way of giving back to the industry. ‘Creative Conversations’ is targeted at young creatives from around the globe from the disciplines of Advertising, Production, Design, Digital and Branding & Marketing.

LIA coordinates a week of educational and enriching seminars, lunches and dinners filled with stimulating discussions centred on the experiences and ideas of the speakers in their respective fields. The attendees are encouraged to drive the conversations using their own experiences or by asking questions that would take the conversations to another level. The entire initiative, including travel, meals and hotel expenses, is fully funded by LIA.

In 2013, 'Creative Conversations' will once again take place in Las Vegas during the week of LIA Judging. Sixty-five hand-picked young creatives will attend this invitation- only event.

This year the attendees will experience an incredible line-up of speakers from around the world. The Keynote Speaker is Daymond John, Founder & CEO of FUBU, Star of ABC’s Shark Tank, & CEO of Shark Branding, marketing consulting agency.
