Dear AAF-BR Members,
Natalie and I have the honor of being ADDY Chairs this year for the American Advertising Awards in Baton Rouge. We have an amazing event in the works scheduled to be at the L’Auberge Casino-Hotel Event Center in February of 2014! We are putting together a fabulous headliner event – complete with amazing local creative talent, an interactive theme, incredible food and fun only the L’Auberge Hotel & Casino can provide!
Currently, our efforts have mostly been focused on potential sponsorships. This is a wonderful opportunity for you to be in front of just the professional representatives you currently work with and potential customers as well! Other sponsors who have already joined us include Gerry Lane, The Advocate, OLOLRMC and Clear Channel. We also have a part of the show we will dedicate in Memory to those we have lost in this business including Gerry Lane, Kevin Hebert and Michelle Kron.
We expect anywhere from 300-400 local and district active Advertisers and Marketers to be involved with this event – from helping plan to entering the competition to attending the ceremony. In addition, we have an extremely strong presence with the LSU students. We have at least 75-100 students who not only help with the events leading up to the ceremony, but also enter their own work. These are your potential future advertisers! Some of our members/attendants include Media Buyers, Marketers and Advertising Representatives for:
- Lee Michaels Fine Jewelry
- Gerry Lane Enterprises
- LAMAR Advertising
- Woman’s Hospital
- Raising Cane’s
- Baton Rouge General Hospital
