Advertising Week is more than just a celebration. It is about focusing the industry and public-at-large on the business building potential of advertising and shining a bright light on its significant economic impact. It is also about inspiring young people to join the craft. For the past seven years we have had the chance to expose over 900 students to an experience of a lifetime. Each student was given the chance to gain invaluable, hands-on experience working alongside industry experts.
Students will begin the day at the TIFF Bell Lightbox, where they will enjoy breakfast and listen to a panel of professionals from the advertising and marketing industry with various levels of experience. There is a Q&A period during which the students will have the opportunity to ask questions.
In the afternoon, students will then leave for their assigned agency and upon arrival, will be given a guided tour of the office and a Q&A session with key personnel. Students will be able to work with an interdisciplinary team of strategic and creative pros and get the opportunity to contribute ideas to an ongoing agency project:
