Now in its 10th year, Creative3 returns for 2019 to celebrate the founders, innovators and advocates that are the new pioneers in the creative industries, through our Creative3 Awards.
They will be accompanied by four world-leading experts, who will share their creative insights across entertainment, advertising and marketing, fashion, science and retail.
Creative3 is more than an industry event, it is about building and strengthening the startup ecosystem and creative industries in Queensland and discovering new ways we can use creativity as a platform to innovate.
Your support and attendance will play a critical part in helping the growth of a sector that is set to become not just important, but central to the future of the Australian economy.
Join us for an afternoon of inspiration, entertainment and celebration.
