Ad Guys Just Talking, Part I: Do We Need Advertising Week?

Alas, it’s that time of year again when the industry converges on New York City for Advertising Week (damn, time flies). So, to help kick off the event, we gathered a few folks from the creative, media and publishing sides last week in our Mediabistro studios to discuss the weeklong festivities (as  well as various other non-Advertising Week-related industry issues). Those taking part in the lively, free-flowing chat include PSFK founder/CEO Piers Fawkes, Huge creative director Ross Maupin and Scott Schwartz, senior partner, integrated planning at MEC.

The topic of this particular conversation was, yes, Advertising Week, including if its actually still worth attending and if so, what our participants are looking forward to at this year’s event. Tomorrow, the lads discuss the elephant in the room that is the Publicis-Omnicom merger. Stay tuned.
