The organizers of Advertising Week Europe which had been scheduled to take place in London 16-19 March announced yesterday that the event has been postponed to 14-17 September because of COVID-19 concerns.
A statement on the event's website says in part:
"After careful consideration, Advertising Week Europe has made the difficult decision to postpone the event to 14-17 September 2020.
"Given the growing concerns over public health and safety due to the developing Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, the team has proactively made arrangements to move the planned programme to Autumn 2020."
Speakers that had been announced for the 16-19 March event include:
- Martin Sorrell, S4 Capital
- Mark Read, WPP
- Nicola Mendelsohn, Facebook EMEA
- Former Unilever CMO Keith Weed
New videos, podcasts and articles featuring the event's speakers will be run on Advertising Week's AW360 and AWLearn platforms beginning next week.
