2017 American Advertising Awards Banquet

Killed It. A Who Won It Mystery.
Thursday, March 9
5 – 9 p.m.
The Trails Banquet Facility

Are you guilty of using your creativity to eliminate the other suspects? Join Mr. ADDY and a colorful cast of characters at the mansion for a lineup of leading-edge materials as we work to solve this classic conundrum.

We’ll examine all of the evidence – traditional, digital, social, viral, outdoor, environmental, and everything in between – brought before us to solve the mystery.

  • Maybe it was Captain Cyan in the editing room with the X-Acto knife?
  • Could it be Mr. Green in the recording studio with the boom mic?
  • Take a closer look at Miss Magenta in the printer room with the swatch book.
  • Or, perhaps it was Professor Pantone in the darkroom with the zoom lens …

That’s how it could have happened. Join us and find out who killed it.

Doors open at 5 p.m. for cocktails and mingling. Dinner is served at 6 p.m. and then the awards presentation starts at 7 p.m. Please email us with any dietary restrictions at admin@aafnci.org.

RSVP by Thursday, March 2, 5 p.m.
