Advertising Week was reimagined this year with an enlightening virtual event that was broadcast live this week from New York.
The agenda was purpose-built to bring marketing, media, technology, and creative industries together to drive change.
The global community came together for instrumental meetings with senior leaders in productive discussions and had the opportunity to learn new skills, meet new business prospects, and gain tools and insights that elevate careers.
Engaging online talks on the agenda included moments with the likes of Jason Derulo, Nas, Michael Phelps, Jewel, Pairs, Hilton, Katie Couric, Arianna Huffington, Kevin Smith, Halle Berry, LL Cool J, and Bozoma Saint John.
Kevin Hart took a moment to speak from his family home and reflected on the power of great work relationships, as he has with Hollywood icon The Rock, as well as his new focus on podcasts and radio as a form of communication.
“I realize the impact that I have and the impact that I can be. It’s not about the moment of right now. It is about what will be,” as he spoke during the sit down about his “Laugh Out Loud” program and his show “Strength of Heart.”
Advertising Week is all about looking ahead to see what is coming up in core areas such as marketing, inclusion, content, and company culture. With so much global disruption, it can be hard to imagine what lies ahead so our speakers have abandoned their crystal balls and will instead bring you practical tips for the short-term future as well as long-term brand building. But with platforms like this, we can only hope for a bright and thriving future around the corner.
