2018 saw a great year for Creativebrief events. Back in April, we ran a panel exploring ridding the industry of the pitch as we know it which turned up some very interesting shifts in brand and agency opinion. Whilst in July, we turned our attention to working culture and the impact some brands are unaware they're having on agency personnel.
Then in October came the biggie - BITE LIVE. We kept things subtle with the likes of Mary Portas, David Schneider, Jude Kelly CBE, Karen Fraser MBE, Katie Derham, Shelina Janmohamed, LADbible, adidas, and more inspiring over 150 senior brand and agency folk. You know - just your average get together. The day was symptomatic of what Creativebrief and BITE are all about. Elevating the bar when it comes to industry events and producing something that whets your creative appetite.
And in 2019, we're not about to rest on our laurels.
Are agency brands still relevant?
Wednesday 6th March 2019
Creativebrief Explores returns asking Are agency brands still relevant? This industry has mergers coming out of its ears. Agencies with decades of heritage find themselves contorting into overlong acronyms alongside their contemporaries. Whatever the reasons, where does this leave agency brands - for agencies and brands alike? And does it even matter? We shake things up to present a debate-style morning event asking our speakers (and you) to pick a side and settle an argument.
Where to find creative inspiration to make great work
Thursday 6th June 2019
Then in June, we're looking at creativity and where inspiration comes from. We use these words so frequently they can sometimes lack meaning. Who are those who've truly harnessed the world beyond their own periphery - that fertile patch of sweet, sweet inspiration to produce great work? We'll be finding out and sharing their stories and advice with you so you can go into the second half of 2019 inspired.
BITE LIVE 2019: From Insight to Action
Thursday 19th September 2019
BITE LIVE returns. And this time we're keeping it to half a day. From first thing until lunch, we'll bring you a look at the past year's most memorable and innovative campaigns, trends and insights. Condensed from the likes of Cannes and Austin - and let's not forget Soho. Plus the personalities and influencers from our industry making waves. All to ensure 2019 and 2020 looks transformative for you and your team.
We know events calendars can fill up fast. And before you know it the only person dreading those dreary conference rooms more than you is the finance director getting the bill. That's why in 2019 we're continuing to take up the creativity and bring down the price. Especially if you have an existing membership with us.
