AXIS 2023 | Awards & AXIS Speaks

Tickets are on sale for the 2023 AXIS Speaks and AXIS Awards

The Commercial Communications Council (Comms Council) is delighted to announce that tickets are now available for the 43rd annual AXIS Awards and the associated speaker event, AXIS Speaks, to be held at Shed10 on Thursday 30 March 2023.

Early bird entries closed last Wednesday, with the final deadline being Wednesday, 8 February 2023. The Comms Council Head of Comms and Events, James Wotton says “we have already seen a massive number of entries submitted. It's great to see so many agencies taking advantage of the early bird pricing – if we receive too many more before next week, we will likely be looking at our largest AXIS yet.”

After a 4 year hiatus, AXIS Speaks is returning and the Comms Council wishes to raise the profile of this event and reach a wider audience. The audience of AXIS Speaks is therefore not only limited to the advertising industry, but also includes clients, CEOs, CFOs, and other members of the business community. This year's Axis Speaks will see four world class creatives take the stage to inspire the New Zealand Creative advertising community for the year ahead.

The first speaker being announced from the AXIS Speaks line-up for 2023 is Susan Credle, Global Chair & Global Chief Creative Officer of FCB. Susan Credle is a creative powerhouse with a strong moral compass that drives her quest to infuse the industry with diversity. As the first female chair of The One Club for Creativity, Susan champions creative talent and promotes diversity within the industry.

The Comms Council will announce the rest of the line up over the coming weeks, but tickets are limited, so get in quick.

Simon Lendrum, Comms Council CEO says “It's really exciting to see a high number of entries in this year's awards along with the revival of the AXIS Speaks event. Our intention is to see our creative advertising community take a day out to celebrate the success of our best campaigns from the past 12 months and hear from some truly world-class thought leaders around creativity and be inspired for the year ahead.”

The AXIS Award winners will be revealed at the AXIS Awards Show to be held later that evening.

Tickets are now on sale for both AXIS Speaks and the AXIS Awards.
