Advertising Hall of Achievement

November 12, 2019 | Hilton Chicago

On behalf of the American Advertising Federation Board of Directors and the Advertising Hall of Achievement Executive Committee, we would like to extend a heartfelt THANK YOU for helping us celebrate our industry’s brightest up-and-comers at the 2019 Advertising Hall of Achievement.

Your unwavering commitment helps emphasize the importance of this annual event to our industry, and also helps the AAF to continue its mission-critical programs including grassroots advocacy, education, industry ethics, professional development, and to promote diversity and inclusion across advertising. 

We greatly appreciate your partnership and look forward to celebrating with you again next year, at Cipriani 42nd Street on November 18, 2020. 

Thank you for letting the unifying voice for advertising be heard.
