Create Well With Others
This year during Meet the Pros 2018 hosted by AAF Omaha more than 190 students and young professionals took the next step. Our next generation of advertising professionals moved up the elevator. They have been meeting deadlines, slogging through collaborations and critiques, and challenging conventions with their own ideas about creativity and career. We thank them for taking two days from their classrooms to join us in the real world of advertising.
This was not a sit-and-listen yawn-fest. Meet the Pros 2018 allowed attendees to participant in a once-a-year event teaming up-and-comers with been-there-done-thats.
AAF Omaha celebrated 57 years of hosting Meet the Pros on February 1 & 2. With loads of new content for attendees we presented new speakers this year along with more professionals from more categories, plus internships and scholarships for students to apply for. Meet the Pros 2018 was where aspiration met inspiration.
Thank you to the more than 130 professionals giving their time to participate as event committee leaders, speakers, tour guides, table talk facilitators, portfolio and resume reviewers and to more than 75 professionals that took time to join Meet the Pros attendees at lunch to hear keynote presenters and interact with students.
