It (only) took 9 successful years of Advertising Week in New York City before the world’s premier annual gathering of marketing and communications leaders landed in London. Now in its 2nd year in Europe, Advertising Week promises another excellent roundup of events.

Matt Scheckner, chief executive officer of Stillwell Partners which produces Advertising Week globally, commented: “The UK has spoken with resounding clarity and Advertising Week Europe will most certainly be back in 2014 at BAFTA 195 Piccadilly. From our daytime thought leadership seminars to a series of evening special events including the International ANDY Awards and a sold out live stand up comedy night in the Princess Anne Theatre, BAFTA 195 is now firmly established as the hub of Advertising Week 2014.”
