Get the virtual experience with real interactions.
Due to the ongoing Omicron COVID variant, we have decided to postpone our in-person Creative Leaders Retreat and WITHIN in The Big Easy until next year. But coming this March, we’re bringing back the virtual experience with live sessions and small group discussions where you’ll get to learn, ask questions and get honest answers from fellow creatives.
March 22 - 24, 2022
Agency and Brand-Side Together
Too often we’ve heard that there isn't a formal training process to go from being a creative to a creative leader. The Creative Leaders Retreat and our brand-side agency conference WITHIN are designed to bridge that gap while pushing the boundaries beyond the traditional conference. This year we’re bringing the two events together over the three-day online conference. You’ll join like-minded creatives and exchange ideas as we navigate through these historic times.
Connections & Dialogue
We realize some of the most important parts of the Creative Leaders Retreat + WITHIN are the networking and discussions outside the sessions. That’s why we are working to ensure that attendees will not only get to ask our speakers questions but also connect with each other in small groups and one-on-one through our attendee directory and breakout rooms.
The Path Forward
Since March 2020, the world has been turned upside down with COVID-19, civil unrest, a tumultuous U.S. Presidential Election and changing business and consumer needs. The ad industry has rebounded, but we’re facing a more fractured landscape than ever before. You’ll get to hear from both agency and brand-side creative leaders on how they are adjusting to this new world and creating the path forward through uncertainty.
No podiums. No hashtags.
The retreat happens behind closed doors so that we create a safe space for open and honest dialogue. That means we ask that there's no tweeting about what's being said and we make recordings available only to attendees. And this year we’re bringing agencies and brands together to not only learn from one another but share experiences in a relaxed, non-competitive environment.
