2020 Creative LIAisons



Exclusive, and single-mindedly focused on the work and those who create it.

See the best, learn from the best, talk with the best, drink with the best, become the best. Creatives ages 21-30 can meet, learn, and mingle with the creatives they look up to most in the industry. Running concurrently with the judging for LIA. LIAisons is funded by LIA. Space is limited to 100 delegates.

Creative LIAisons is an annual program open to creatives, and creatives only.

LIAisons is designed to be a creative oasis in an industry that is in danger of focusing less and less on its creative output. We stand for the work and those who make it.

And to give back to our creative community, LIA provides air transportation and accommodation to all who attend. Your company won't incur any cost (except missing your brain for a week). There are no delegate fees. We don't select the attendees, the companies who support LIA through entries do, as well as the media outlets who sponsor creative competitions worldwide.


LIAisons runs at the same time as LIA judging.

There are no delegate fees and we pay for flights and hotel accommodations for all attendees. As a result the attendance is extremely competitive. We can only accommodate 100 delegates, with preference given, of course, to agencies that support LIA through entries. During judging, all jury rooms are open, LIAisons attendees are welcome in to observe the process first-hand from the initial conversations all the way through to final metal awarding (no bribing please). No other show does this.


Our workshops are interactive in the truest, original sense of the word, meaning you can actually interact with the presenters in person.

Questions and conversation are more than encouraged, they are essential to the experience.

The entire week provides ample opportunity to meet and mingle with the luminaries from advertising, design, digital, health, production and technology. Unlike other festivals our size, environment and events are designed for juniors to enjoy unfettered access to the leaders of the industry.

A week that provides junior creatives with expertise, insight, new professional relationships and unparalleled networking opportunities, LIAisons has been described as nothing short of priceless by countless alumni.


Executives have told us numerous times that they have found LIAisons to be priceless for the juniors who attend.

This is not a vacation or a boondoggle. Those who show up are encouraged to participate in as much as they can, make their voices heard, and report what they have learned back to their companies. It's less like a vacation in the south of France and much more like a boot camp. With some drinking at night.

If you have any questions at all please ask. We love hearing from you.
