Advertising Hall of Fame

April 24, 2018 |  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.
