The One Club for Creativity unveils Virtual Creative Week 2021

Under the banner “Connect. Provoke. Inspire.,” Creative Week 2021 will include awards shows and dozens of general programming panels and workshops across four virtual stages, as well as premium events on the fifth stage including the Executive Creative Summit for agency principals and a day-long unConference.

“This year’s Creative Week is truly a global festival,” said Kevin Swanepoel, CEO, The One Club. “Sessions have been designed, both in scheduling and content, to make programming convenient and relevant for creatives in all time zones around the world. We’ve applied the same global focus to pricing, and provided different tiers for regions where currency and economic conditions make it more challenging to register for the festival.”
