Learn more about attending Advertising Week

In 2003, Advertising Week New York debuted for the first time. Now in its 14th year, #AWNewYork was held in some of New York City’s most historic and iconic venues for a week of thoughtful conversations with leaders from the marketing, advertising, technology and creative spaces. Over the course of the week, they discussed where we’ve been, where we’re going and what trends, challenges and opportunities are shaping today’s global industry. Advertising Week New York is a part of a global network of Advertising Week events in Sydney, Tokyo, Mexico City, and London.

Advertising Week’s daytime thought leadership program is made up of over 270 seminars and workshops focused on the industry’s most important topics. From innovations in technology, to creative storytelling and new trends in programmatic data, our program is built to be diverse, educational and thought provoking.
