FEATURING KEYNOTE SPEAKER HAL CURTIS, WIEDEN + KENNEDY

Featuring keynote speaker Hal Curtis, native Texan and Creative Director of independent agency Wieden + Kennedy, Portland, Oregon. He produced some of the agency’s most distinctive work from as creative director on the Nike account and then later Coke and Diet Coke. In 2006, Advertising Age’s Creativity Magazine named Curtis one of the 50 most influential creative leaders of the last 20 years. Curtis was the creative director behind 2008’s “It’s Mine” ad, which depicts inflatable cartoon characters who become untethered during a parade in New York City to battle over a floating Coke bottle. Adweek in 2009 named it the Best Super Bowl Spot of the Decade. And the ad made it into the top 10 of Advertising Age magazine’s list of the best Super Bowl ads ever. “Thinking in terms of television-only is a thing of the past,” said Curtis, who has worked for Wieden+Kennedy since 1997. “There are so many interesting ways to engage consumers. And it’s just beginning.”
