“Issues which begin with, but transcend our industry, are the heartbeat of Advertising Week as we leverage our platform to elevate the conversation around cancer care, climate change, diversity & gender equity with a dedicated focus on biases against moms in the workplace, gun safety, mental health and wellness, and the opioid crisis,” said Matt Sheckner, global chief executive of Advertising Week.
“On another path, we will put the agency business front and center, both the traditional holding companies who are re-tooling for the future, and the fast-rising new players, from the consultancies which have been gobbling up agencies at a fast clip, to new models under the leadership of long-time leaders like Sir Martin Sorrell and David Jones,” he added. “Most of all, it’s 100% new and we have to keep our finger on the pulse of the present as we pave the way forward to what’s next, well, it’s just endlessly exciting for us.”
Advertising Week New York 2019 will be held at the AW Campus, located in the AMC Lincoln Square, from September 23-26. Early bird tickets are available until 26 July.
