The ADCE European Creativity Festival launches this year with a one-of-a-kind format: The Festival of Festivals. A collective and interactive space, co-organised by and with our local member clubs. A place where the European creative community can come together, be inspired and exchange ideas and experiences.

Created to celebrate and recognize the art of creativity, graphic design and new creative solutions, the ADCE Festival features a packed programme of conferences, workshops, networking opportunities and other activities, delivered by some of the most innovative and inspiring people around the world.

This year, the festival’s theme has been set by Steve Vranakis, Festival Curator and Chief Creative Officer for the Greek Government.

What’s the story behind?

Each edition of the ADCE Festival strives to present innovative ideas and models that challenge the way we see creativity and inspire shifts in perceptions that will help reshape the future of the industry.

As a curated event, participants are exposed to meaningful talks revolving around a major topic of specific relevance to the fields of design and advertising.  Most of the speakers go on to work hand-in-hand with the participants in one of the programmed workshops covering industry trends, new technologies and powerful working models.

All in all, attendees walk away with new ideas that can make a real impact on their work.
