It’s October the 1st, which means Advertising Week 2012 is upon us. For the uninitiated, Advertising Week is an annual ad-stravaganza, offering 5 days of non-stop panels, parties, concerts and keynotes. As you would expect, Saatchi will be participating in some of these events (coincidentally, all of them on Thursday) and we’ll cap off the fun by hosting 7×7: 6th Edition at 5PM at BB Kings.
For a complete schedule you can head over to AdvertisingWeek.com or download the official AW app, but in the meantime, we’ve put together a list of where you’ll see Saatchi folks this week. Side note: If you’re going to any event(s) this week and are interested in livetweeting via @hudsonhouston, please give us a shout here. Thanks!
7×7: 6th Edition
For our latest go-round of intellectually stimulating micro-entertainment, we’ve got a group of smart, funny, rockin’ and sometimes all-of-the-above presenters, including our own CCO Con Williamson. RSVP for your seat here.
