Cairo Ad School and Team Dubai/B&W will host The One Club for Creativity’s global Portfolio Night in each of those cities, taking place on 20 May, 2020.
The One Club has so far confirmed 22 hosts in 23 cities will take part in this year’s annual Portfolio Night, and is actively seeking additional agencies, schools and creative organizations in other locations worldwide to participate.
Other hosts for confirmed cities to date are Arnold (Boston), BETC (Paris), Brokaw (Cleveland), Círculo de Creativos (Buenos Aires), Clube Criativos de Portugal (Lisbon), DDB Colombia (Bogota), Dieste (Dallas), Dotwell (Shenzhen), Goodby Silverstein & Partners (San Francisco), GTB (Detroit), Happiness Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City), i2mago (Guangzhou), Inbrax (Santiago), Kyoorius (Mumbai), Lanfranco & Cordova (Lima), McGarrah Jessee (Austin), Publicis (Seattle) Serviceplan (Beijing), Tank (Montréal) and VMLY&R (London and New York).
The program includes Portfolio Night All-Stars competition, where each city host selects the young creative in their market with the best portfolio. All of these lucky All-Stars from around the world will be flown to New York to work for a week as a team on a creative brief for a major global brand.
Portfolio Night is a fast-paced evening of advice, networking and recruitment that takes place in dozens of cities all across the globe on the same date to help the next generation of creative talent entering the industry.
Portfolio Night serves as the gateway for young talent to enter the industry, enabling the best of the present — hundreds of renowned international creative directors — to meet and mentor the leaders of the future in industry hubs around the world.
“Portfolio Night is a unique global event that serves as a high-visibility opportunity for agencies and creative directors to give back to the industry by guiding the earliest steps of future copywriters, art directors, designers and technologists. We are very grateful to Cairo Ad School for hosting this important global event and look forward to hearing from other agencies and organizations who want to host Portfolio Night in their local market,” said Kevin Swanepoel, CEO, The One Club for Creativity.
