Today is H+K’s annual creativity symposium at Kings Place, London! We’re excited to hear from engaging speakers and network with 300 influential brands and influencers.

This year’s theme is Creativity + New Reality, which will focus on how culture and technology are shaping the ways we consume, connect and do business. From virtual reality to navigating geopolitical landscapes, how can brands continue to show creativity while keeping up with ever-evolving audiences in this new reality?
