For one week, from September 25 – 29 in New York City, leaders from the advertising, marketing, media and related creative industries will join together to share their visions, passions and best practices, and engage in conversations about the many issues, opportunities and challenges facing the industry today.

From daytime thought leadership programming and seminars during the day, to networking and world-class entertainment in historic New York venues at night, Advertising Week offers a unique opportunity for industry professionals to come together and debate, discuss and consider the future of the business.

Seminars & Workshops
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.

Industry leaders like Sheryl Sandberg, Arianna Huffington, Sir Martin Sorrell, Carolyn Everson, Nigel Morris, Jessica Alba, Ira Glass and Lin-Manuel Miranda are just a few examples of the inspiring speakers you’ll learn from at Advertising Week.
