MCCANN TALKS REVEALS WHAT CREATIVE INDUSTRY CAN DO
The Yugoslav Drama Theater (Studio Room) on May 31 will host the “McCann Talks”, a one-day event whose aim is to gather in one place the most relevant representatives of the creative and related industries. Organized by agency McCann Belgrade, “McCann Talks” is designed as a meeting of organizations and individuals from the world of entrepreneurship, arts, tech and entertainment where they will share their opinions and attitudes in three panels.
The panel “How much is Serbian idea worth” will provide information on the contribution of creative industries to the Serbian economy, demonstrate successful examples of export of local ideas and will try to answer the question how much a Serbian idea is worth. “Demography is dead” is the name of the second panel, which has the theme to “break down stereotypes”, which is of crucial importance for the advertising industry, but also the media as those who have a role in creating public opinion and values. The last panel “Future jobs” will focus on the professions of the future and aims to launch initiatives and to inspire cooperation between different industries.
Attendance at the event is free, but it is necessary to register in advance via the site due to limited number of seats. More information about the event, the participants and the application form can be found on the website: www.mccann-talks.rs
