It is only about a mile and a half away from The Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch, where the Creative Leaders Retreat will take place. Daily shuttles will be available.
The Creative Leaders Retreat is designed to push the boundaries beyond the idea of a traditional conference. Over two days you’ll have unrivaled access to some of the most influential leaders and risk-takers in the advertising industry. You will participate in small-group sessions where the emphasis is on discussion and come away with ideas you can implement, whether you’re a rising creative or a seasoned veteran.

As part of the retreat, you’ll also gain insights by spending time with mentors and participants in group activities while enjoying the warm desert climate.

No hashtags. No podiums. Tough questions can be asked and honest answers will be given.
