Following the Createch COGX event held in early June, the UK Advertising Export Group (UKAEG) continue their Summer Showcase with new free events in July.
The COGX event supported and attended by Crowd as part of the UKAEG hosted 45,000 delegates over the three day virtual event. Our talk on technology in fashion was one of the many talks hosted by industry leaders and thinkers.
As we emerge into a new post-Covid business climate, it’s never been more important to share and gain valuable learnings from marketers and businesses alike.
Janet Hull, Chair, UK Advertising Export Group, said: “If Covid-19 has proved one thing it is that UK advertising continues to produce great work for our international customers, even during a period of enforced remote working. Our showcase is a brilliant place to see what UK advertising has to offer you and your business as you plan your exit from the lockdown and path to growth, no matter where you might be based geographically.”
