Elevate the positioning of Advertising Week Europe as a champion of the UK’s creative industries and their contribution to a strong and vibrant economy.


Seven Hills has led the press operation for Advertising Week Europe since 2015.

The week-long annual gathering of the creative industries brings together the greatest minds from across business, technology, politics, marketing, and media to Picturehouse Central in Piccadilly Circus.

It explores the challenges and opportunities facing the creative industries: from the creative implications of AI and ChatGPT, idealism of Gen Z, impacts of the cost-of-living crisis, the metaverse, to data security, and diversity and inclusion.

Speakers have included leaders from the world’s biggest brands – Facebook, Google, TikTok, Amazon, YouTube, Snap and Microsoft – media, and politics.

Highlight sessions from previous editions of the event include: Leading entertainment personality and entrepreneur, Simon Cowell, on innovations in music and creating new opportunities for emerging artists and performers; DJ Fat Tony on overcoming homelessness and battling with addiction; Sports stars and presenters, Gabby Logan and Ugo Monye, on how brands can successfully cut through with high-impact storytelling in sport; US Vice President Al Gore mapping out the role brands can play in tackling climate change; Brexit campaigner Gina Miller setting out the legal challenge she led against the government; and Salma Hayek on social media has helped tackle sexual violence and age discrimination.

“All of us at Advertising Week are proud to put the spotlight on the amazing women in our industry – and we’re committed to celebrating their achievements to help set the tone for the future.” – Ruth Mortimer, the Global President of Advertising Week
