Over 650 companies sent employees to the Portland Creative Conference

Over 650 companies have sent employees to Cre8con

People attend Cre8con for the unique form of inspiration, motivation, and ideation that can result from listening to successful creatives across a variety of industries talk about their creative process and show examples of their work.

Teams in the workplace can benefit from this experience as well. You never know when a creative process story or learning from a Speaker in an unrelated creative industry will spark a fresh idea or innovative way of working together.

Here’s a team testimonial from a previous Cre8con:

It didn’t take much for six of us at Speak! to ditch the office and take part in this year’s Portland Creative Conference. What a treat. And what a payoff. Like last year, we were quickly humbled by listening to one brilliant mind after the next.
— Attendee from the Speak! marketing agency

That helps explain why over 650 companies have sent employees to Cre8con over the past 4 years, many as teams. See some example companies listed by business category below.  You can also view a complete list of companies who sent people to Cre8con between 2015 and 2018.

NOTE: For this year’s event, as of 06/19/19, the total number of Team registrations (3 or more people) outnumber Individual registrations by more than 2-to-1.

This event can get teams out of their day-to-day for a breath of creative fresh air in a cost-effective way. Teams get out of the office together and are exposed to different creative insights from other industries and new ways of thinking.

Here is another team testimonial:

The conference is always a good experience for us and we end up working more collaboratively as a result.
— Attendee from the City of Vancouver
