What’s new, at Advertising Week for 2010?

Advertising Week is proud to a launch a brand new easily navigated website to help inform interested participants of all the exciting and new initiatives. In Toronto, we have secured a new “social hub”, so the industry has a place to meet, network and mingle every day after work. This social hub is located at Lobby Restaurant and Bar, 192 Bloor Street West. Further, the culminating event for Advertising Week will be the first ever Ad Ball: A Fashion Fetish to be held on Friday, January 29th.

Session topics vary and speakers will be presenting from a wide range of disciplines and backgrounds.  With events held around the city for an entire week of interaction, be sure to check out seminars ranging from “Leading Social Change – Ideas, Tools and Inspiration” to “Creativity in the new Ages.”

Advertising Week was created to highlight and honour the continual contribution of the Canadian communications community and to strengthen that success by providing a forum to develop a nation wide community of creative thinkers.  Register now for a chance to be a part of this advocacy.
