LIA has announced the launch of its 'Creative Conversations' program targeted to young creatives from around the globe. The goal of 'Creative Conversations' is to provide the next generation of creative minds unprecedented access to a unique and diverse group of industry luminaries for one-on-one conversations and seminars. Seventy attendees will be participating in this invitation-only event that will take place at Encore/Wynn, Las Vegas coinciding with the LIA Judging Sessions. The entire initiative, including travel and hotel expenses, is being funded by LIA.
Barbara Levy explains the move saying that she wantsto give something back to the Industry that has made LIA what it is today. Budgets have been squeezed extremely hard over the past few years and with very few agencies and creative businesses with cash to spare to fly across the world to attend awards ceremonies, this seemed a far more meaningful and rewarding way to do that.
There will be an exclusive UK Awards Presentation on the 12th November at Paramount, Centre Point in London, which will be followed by international presentations in the subsequent months.
Watch this space to hear up to the minute remarks from the jury and for the eagerly awaited shortlist announcements.
