Becoming the Ultimate Creative Industries Event

By: TNNA Editor

Creative industries, no matter what subset, have always thrived on inspiration from within the industry and the goal to achieve something beyond the norm – more sustainable, richer color, distinctive designs, etc.

TNNA is partnering with The Association For Creative Industries (AFCI) as part the ultimate creative industries event in Phoenix this January: Creativation 2020.

What can you expect at Creativation 2020? To avoid sensory overload, let’s start with five exciting draws of the event:
