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
