Portfolio Night phenomenon makes Middle East debut

May 31, 2009

Portfolio Night, the world’s largest simultaneous creative portfolio review, is coming to the region for the first time courtesy of Memac Ogilvy. The network is leading the initiative which is now in its seventh year globally, though the event itself will see senior creative directors from a host of regional agencies make themselves available in one location for face-to-face comment and advice.

PortfolioThe event takes place around the world on Thursday June 11 and is open to all students and young creatives who have a portfolio and want to get a foot in the door of the industry or further their careers.

It is free to participate, but places are limited and given on a first come first served basis. Aspirant young creatives wishing to take part must register and book a ticket by visiting the Portfolio Night website and clicking on the location relevant to them.

Portfolio Night will take place from 4pm on June 11 at three locations in the MENA region: Dubai, Beirut and Tunis. Amongst the supporters of the Dubai event are the founding members of the recently formed Creative Club, which includes creative leaders from the Lowe, Y&R and FP7 networks.

Participants will be able to rotate between the various mentors available and all advertising disciplines, including interactive and direct marketing, will be represented.
