New York, NY - This Thursday (October 4th) Saatchi & Saatchi New York presents the 6th Edition of its popular 7x7 Series as part of Advertising Week.
The speedy "ideas festival" will take place at BB Kings Times Square (5PM) and feature a wide array of talented presenters. The complete lineup includes Slipknot co-founder and percussionist "Clown", Movember Chief Operating Officer Jason Hincks, Learnvest CEO Alexa Von Tobel, "Performance Philosopher" Jason Silva, novelist (The Year of the Gadfly) Jennifer Miller, Boston University Law Professor and author Jay Wexler, as well as host of the evening, Saatchi & Saatchi NY's Chief Creative Officer Con Williamson.
7x7 is an ideas showcase that features seven experts from seven backgrounds presenting for seven minutes each. From film theory to coffee roasting, epidemiology to the economy, cutting edge comedy to modern motherhood, if it's a topic worth talking about, 7x7 has it covered. It's bite sized information for the twitter generation.
The series has delighted audiences for more than two years, hosting 7 minute talks from comedian Reggie Watts, TED curator Chris Anderson, Time's Howard Chua-Eoan, The Observer's Elizabeth Spiers, Harvard epidemiologist John Brownstein, and Tom Bernard of Sony Pictures Classic, among others.
"We're an ideas company, and the fact is that many of the best ideas out there don't come from inside the advertising industry," said Con Williamson, Chief Creative Officer of Saatchi & Saatchi New York. "7x7 is a place for us to get together with some of the coolest, most creative, most interesting personalities we can find and have them share their awesome stuff with a room full of people. They're fast, they're smart and they're a whole lot of fun. We're really looking forward to coming back to BB Kings for our 6th Edition."
For the 6th Edition, Saatchi & Saatchi New York is excited to bring a versatile lineup of entrepreneurs, writers, performers and thinkers to the Advertising Week audience. Complete ticketing and event details can be found at www.saatchi7x7.com.
