Twist Image to bring 'social' to the global conversation on commerce and creativity at C2-MTL event.
MONTREAL, Feb. 6, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - As C2-MTL gets ready to take the business conference where it has never been taken before, the team is thrilled to announce that Twist Image has been selected as its Social Media agency. This close collaboration was created to take the C2-MTL event and extend it to the many online channels.
"C2-MTL is about collaboration, not competition. If Montreal wins, we all win." says Jean-Francois Bouchard, CEO and senior partner of creative agency Sid Lee and curator of the C2-MTL event. "Our partnership with Twist Image further validates our mission: to make Montreal a focal point for the global conversation about commerce and creativity. We have tons of respect for Mitch and his partners and we're honoured to have an agency like Twist Image working with us."
C2-MTL (as in Commerce + Creativity) takes place in Montreal on May 22nd - 25th, 2012. The conference will offer more than a great line-up of speakers (like Francis Ford Coppola, Michael, Eisner, Arianna Huffington and more), but will also include practical advice and work tools with the objective of completely revitalizing the conference experience through non-traditional means. This includes special segments from creative partner, Cirque du Soleil, immersive exhibitions, a creativity "bootcamp", custom talks and experientially-oriented workshops designed to fire the imagination. It will all take place in a specially-constructed "innovation village" set in and around the historic and refurbished 19th century New City Gas complex, featuring a fascinating range of interactive installations.
"In speaking to JF and the C2-MTL team, it became clear that this was more than an event," says Mitch Joel, President of Twist Image. "The collision of creativity and commerce is going to change business as we know it forever. The opportunity to not only be a part of the conversation, but to help facilitate it is very exciting. Twist Image, Sid Lee and the C2-MTL teams all know how important Montreal is to this collision of creativity and commerce… now we're ready to show the world."
