Pack your business cards and notebook for a trip around the advertising industry with Ad 2 DC! Join us on May 10 for a “round robin”-style event where local experts representing eight main advertising agency roles will answer your questions and share their knowledge, insights and career advice.

Attendees will be grouped based on their current (or desired) role, and will rotate around to each group of industry professionals. You’ll have the opportunity to learn from experts in your same job category as well as how other areas of the industry interact with those in your role.
