Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) September 11, 2011
The American Advertising Federation of Fort Worth (AAF-Fort Worth) will be hosting the first-ever Central Region Conference on September 16-18, at the Hilton Hotel in downtown Fort Worth.
“To host this event locally is a tremendous opportunity for members of AAF-Dallas and AAF-Fort Worth,” Angelo Antoline, President of AAF-Dallas, said. “The conference will allow Central Region clubs, agencies and their constituent base to learn and share practices, and reach industry leaders in a better capacity than individual district conferences.”
The Central Region of the AAF comprises of five districts, 84 clubs from 18 states and comprises of approximately 12,000 members, with District 10 (Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Northwestern Louisiana) being the largest. While the District 10 holds three large, well-attended conferences each year, the other districts do not. The goal of the conference is to fill the gap between district and national conferences by providing high caliber training, networking and speakers at a level close to that of the national conference that is affordable for small clubs.
The conference will feature speakers from around the country, professional and club development workshops, and trade show. The trade show will include agencies from around the region, including Agency Entourage, one of the first agencies in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex that signed on as a Gold Sponsor.
“The North Texas region has shown an incredible resiliency in this economic environment, especially in the marketing and advertising space, and we are excited to be a supporter and sponsor of this first-time event for our region,” Ben Randolph, Agency Entourage Principal, said. “While you hear about agencies shuttering jobs in other parts of the U.S., we’ve been adding jobs and winning new business. We are excited about this new event and how it’s providing us a forum to share ideas amongst industry peers and connect with our agency partners and resellers who conduct business in the central region.”
Registration for the conference ends Sept. 14 and is expecting over 200 attendees to participate. Those interested are encouraged to visit aaffortworth.com for more information.
