The One Club for Creativity has launched the 2019 Global Portfolio Night, an evening of advice, networking and recruitment that takes place in dozens of cities all across the globe on the same date to help the next generation of creative talent entering the industry.
Hosts for the 19 confirmed cities to date are AlmapBBDO (São Paulo); Arnold (Boston); B&W (Beirut, Dubai); BETC (Paris); Brokaw (Cleveland); Círculo de Creativos (Buenos Aires); Clube Criativos de Portugal (Lisbon); Edelman (Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco); TBWAGroupe (Lyon); The One Club for Creativity-Cairo chapter (Cairo) and Lanfranco/Cordova (Lima).
Portfolio Night is an important event in advertising because it serves as the gateway for young talent to enter the industry, enabling the best of the present - hundreds of renowned international creative directors - to meet and mentor the leaders of the future in industry hubs around the world. It has also become a crucial tool for agencies in recruiting top young talent, providing a platform for recognition from local industry peers, and giving agencies a place on the global stage as the ad world tunes in to this one-of-a-kind event.
The program also includes Portfolio Night All-Stars, where each city host selects one young creative in their market with the best portfolio. These lucky All-Stars are flown to New York from around the world to work for a week as a team on a creative assignment for a major global brand.
"Portfolio Night is a unique global event that serves as a high-visibility opportunity for agencies and creative directors to give back to the industry by guiding the earliest steps of future copywriters, art directors and technologists," said Kevin Swanepoel, CEO, The One Club for Creativity. "We are very grateful to all the agencies and organizations who have already confirmed to make this important global event possible so far and look forward to hearing from others who want to host Portfolio Night to their market."
