Unlike traditional conferences, the flexible, participant-driven format favors discussion, debate and interactive participation on emerging trends, the latest issues and new projects.
How Does It Work?
It's simple. We provide the attendees with a prompt for discussion—and then we get out of the way.
You build the day's agenda around your interests, needs and areas of expertise, with the interactive participation driving the sessions. Each session lasts about 45 minutes and space is reserved for simultaneous sessions to be held throughout the day. Notes are taken at each session, and a book of all the discussions will be compiled. So those sessions you can't make, you won't completely miss.
What Will Be Talked About?
The prompt for the Creative unConference Chicago is:
Thinking like a start-upThe only way to predict the future of your business is to create it yourself. Start-ups experiment. They collaborate. And most importantly, they ask “What if?” Be entrepreneurial and develop successful new streams of revenue for your “creative capital.”
Where do you go from there? Anywhere you like.
Anyone can lead a session or you can simply join the conversation. Start a discussion on a successful product launch or a good idea turned bad. Lead a session on the risks and rewards of creating your own IP or the challenges of being your own client. The agenda is created live. It's about creative dialogue and conversation. Not talking heads.
Who Should Attend?
We bring together a diverse mix of professionals from traditional and interactive agencies, clients from a broad range of industries, producers from digital and entertainment media, and other related creative fields. Mix and mingle with the best and the brightest in their respective disciplines and roles—from creative, strategy and innovation directors, chief marketing officers, art directors, copywriters and media planners to digital artists, futurists, social media geeks and techies and everyone in between.
If you're eager to meet and speak to a diverse group of industry professionals as well as learn and share ideas, the Creative unConference Chicago is for you.
No BS. No hype. Just smart people talking.
