While showing up to the Big Top in a circus clown outfit wouldn't necessarily be frowned upon, take the high wire and dress your best! Follow suit like the Big Wigs with a polished and primed first impression in your business casual attire.
Show what you know, and show it you will! Portfolio reviews will be conducted following the Summit, giving you a chance to show off that special stuff of yours. Our reviewers will happily provide their insight and advice on how to glean a encore-worthy book.
For those attending Student Ad Summit for the first time, be sure to brush up on your favorite agencies, past ad campaigns, and general industry intel. These tidbits are great conversation starters!
