AdForum Worldwide Summit explores new lands of Creativity in London

From Big Ideas to Buzz Marketing, the rules of creativity have exploded and the boundaries between strategy, tactics and execution have blurred to the point of dissolution, opening doors to new disciplines and approaches.
While digital touch-points, social media and narrowcasting have transformed storytelling, one thing remains constant: creativity is still the main currency of our industry.

With a selection of global networks, creative agencies, digital and social shops, AdForum explores the many ways in which our industry is reengineering itself around its core value.

AdForum’s Worldwide Summit gathers selected agency leaders from all disciplines to meet with the world’s leading agency search and management consultants. Every year, these consultants are responsible for handling over 500 reviews for client side marketers, resulting in billions of dollars worth of new business for agencies.
