What is EARS?
EARS – Europe-Asia Roundtable Sessions is a platform supporting creative industry collaboration by introducing the latest trends from Asia, and the professionals behind them.
Professionals of design, media and marketing, music, and performing arts share the passion for international collaboration. But to be successful in foreign markets, there is a need to know local people and understand cultural differences. EARS was set up in 2012 to provide a place for creative professionals from different cultural settings to meet, connect and share ideas.
The mission of EARS is to help build and foster relationships between creative professionals, and to connect the fastest growing creative industry market, Asia, to the rest of the world
EARS lives its mission by offering leading information on Asia’s creative industries through talented professionals, and by bringing professionals together to share best practices and discover business opportunities. To date, EARS events have been organized altogether nine times in Helsinki, Beijing and Shanghai. In August 2016, EARS gathered 300 creative industry professionals from Asia and Europe to Helsinki.
The next EARS event is in Mumbai 16-17 November 2018 – we’re looking forward to seeing you there!
