Sydney agencies including Reactive, We Are Social and Reborn will open their doors on Wednesday as part of the first agency ‘open house‘.
Organised by online industry hub, Creative Social and conference company, Web Directions, the event will allow anyone to pop in and explore digital creative agencies such as Reactive, Soap, Deepend Group, Digital Arts Network, Reborn, Host & MobeSeek, We Are Social, Pollen, TheFarm, Small Multiples and The Interaction Consortium. People can meet creatives, technologists, producers and strategy minds for a drink and a chat, test prototypes, listen to lectures, explore workplaces and start new relationships.
Visitors can expect to mingle with other conference attendees and some heavy hitters from Web Directions’ speaker roster that includes renowned hand lettering artist Jessica Hische, long-time Twitter creative director Douglas Bowman and Internet of Things entrepreneur Matt Webb.
“We wanted Creative Social to be more visible in Australia’s digital community, so that we could advance our creative agenda together,” says Reactive’s creative director, Tim Buesing. “Web Directions allows us to do it in connection with an event of international standing.”
Web Directions co-founder John Allsopp says: “Our event has always been about dialogue between lots of digital and also non-digital disciplines. I am glad Creative Social teamed up with us and is opening up all these top notch agencies for an afternoon.”
