Advertising Hall of Fame

April 28, 2020 |  Cipriani Wall Street | New York

The Advertising Hall of Fame celebrates industry legends, who, throughout their trailblazing careers, have distinguished themselves with outstanding, nationally- and globally-recognized professional achievements; remarkable innovations that have changed our industry and our culture; and exceptional philanthropic work both within the advertising industry and in their communities. Since its inception in 1949, over 250 advertising legends and eight iconic global companies have been elected to the Hall. The event is among the advertising industry’s biggest and most prestigious of the year, attended by nearly 1,000 C-suite and senior level executives from the world’s largest brands, advertising agencies, media and tech companies and is the largest fundraiser for the Federation providing a vital source of funding necessary to continue the wide range of educational, multicultural, and advocacy initiatives that are critical to our industry. 

On behalf of the American Advertising Federation’s Board of Directors and the Advertising Hall of Fame Executive Committee, we would like to extend a heartfelt THANK YOU for helping us honor our industry’s newest legends at the 70th Annual Advertising Hall of Fame Induction Ceremonies and Gala Dinner. As was evidenced by the sold-out Ballroom at Cipriani Wall Street, this milestone event was our most successful night yet.  

Your generous commitment underscores the importance of the Advertising Hall of Fame to our industry, and also enables the AAF to sustain its mission-critical initiatives throughout the year on diversity, grassroots advocacy, education, industry ethics, and professional development.

We appreciate your partnership, and look forward to celebrating with you next year at Cipriani Wall Street in April 28, 2020.
