AAF Omaha Hosts Meet the Pros

The American Advertising Federation Omaha (AAF Omaha), formerly the Omaha Federation of Advertising, is proud to announce our annual Meet the Pros conference will be held February 7th and 8th. This annual two-day conference will take place at the Mid-America Center located in Council Bluffs.



Meet the Pros is Nebraska’s premier student event for advertising and design. This year we are featuring two marquee keynote speakers. For the first time ever, we are opening up both lunches to our professional membership and the public.

On Monday, February 7th, Executive Creative Directors John January and Tug McTighe will present "Jedi Copywriter or Everything I Need to Know about Advertising I Learned from Star Wars.” They will help advertising professionals find a fresh perspective on enjoying creative life and why they chose this crazy business in the first place.

On Tuesday, February 8th, EVP Global Strategy Director for Leo Burnett USA, Patrick Palmer, will present “Finding Yourself on the Island of Misfit Toys.” He will discuss critical issues facing students and professionals, such as: “Why do we not recognize the things that make us special?” “Why do advertising people wear black?” and most importantly, “What’s your monkey?”

The AAF Omaha Ad Rookie and Ad Pro of the year awards will be presented at the luncheon on Tuesday, February 8th.

AAF Omaha is the unifying voice for advertising in the Omaha/Council Bluffs metropolitan area. As advocates for the rights of advertisers, we educate policy makers, the media and the general public on the value advertising brings to the well being of our community.
