Long recognized as the world’s largest advertising portfolio review program, Portfolio Night is a fast-paced 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.
Since starting in 2003, Portfolio Night has happened in 70 cities across 45 countries, where 9,743 portfolios have been reviewed.
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.
“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, designers and technologists,” said Kevin Swanepoel, CEO, The One Club for Creativity. “We are very grateful to these four agencies for supporting this important global event and look forward to hearing from others who want to host Portfolio Night in their local market.”
Tickets for young creatives interested in attending Portfolio Night 2020 in various cities will be available in April, once all hosts are determined.
