UK Advertising heads to SXSW 2023

FEBRUARY 23, 2023

The UK is home to the world’s best advertising talent, leaders in innovation and bold ideas.
In June 2022, UK Advertising cemented our spot in the top three most awarded countries in the world as our advertising and marketing companies took home 85 awards at the prestigious Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity.

Next month, UK Advertising represented by the UK Advertising Exports Group (UKAEG) is looking forward to heading back to Austin next month for SXSW, one of the biggest events for global professionals.

UKAEG’s is hosting an extensive programme of activities at UK House at SXSW, on the ground from March 10-14 in Austin, Texas.
