What Hosts Provide:

    • Most hosts utilize their own facilities, however, Portfolio Night has been hosted at restaurants, bars, clubs and other creative spaces.

    • We think Portfolio Night works best when creatives review creatives (rather than recruiters).  Gather Creative Directors  from across your city or region, not just your own company to increase the benefit for your attendees.
