BAFTA 195 Piccadilly to host Advertising Week Europe 2014

AdvertisingWeekEuropeThe producer of Advertising Week Europe has signaled that the event will return to BAFTA 195 Piccadilly in 2014, following the success of its European debut at the London venue last week.

The festival, which ran from March 18-21, and celebrated marketing and communications, took place in Europe for the first time in 10 years.

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.”

BAFTA 195 Piccadilly welcomed to the event representatives from Google, Spotify, Facebook and Yahoo. Attendees heard from Lord Seb Coe, Frank Abegnale and Paul Adams, head of brand design at Facebook.

Theresa McInerney, senior events coordinator at BAFTA 195 Piccadilly, added: “We’re delighted to having been the host to Advertising Week Europe, and are thrilled to have been chosen as one of the lead venues for such a prestigious festival.”
