Beer & Idea Appreciation Society
The Lotus Awards is the main advertising awards show in Vancouver but unfortunately was cancelled in 2014 due to lack of funding. In its place, local agency 123w created the Beer and Idea Appreciation Society. Instead of an award show, this event was open to the entire creative community and gave everyone an opportunity to share their best work without judging or awards. The event was a huge success, completely sold out, and brought Vancouver’s creative community together to share ideas, conversation, and of course, beer.
