Presented by Old National Bank

September 20 – 21, 2019

at Tropicana Evansville Casino


Evansville is more diverse than people know. We believe e is for everyone. Even advertising and marketing is more varied than people know in terms of what it is or isn’t, where ideas happen, and who it affects. Everyone has a different idea of how communication is defined, which makes it one of the most diverse industries and important disciplines in business today.


The 2019 AAF Central Region Conference will create a platform where everyone can connect with someone or something new, find a unique way to communicate, and celebrate together what makes our industry great. We want to generate and elevate a positive perception of communication and storytelling.

There will be something for everyone whether they work in media, sales, creative, web, production, or the like. Stay tuned for speaker and session details that will educate and excite!


e is for Experience

The Leadership track of the conference will focus on helping AAF leaders grow their clubs and facilitate success through proven content like Club Roundtables and sharing sessions, AAF Membership Review, Board Development, Operational Best Practices, and Diversity & Inclusion. Stay tuned to see which AAF veterans and influencers will be on hand to share their experience and know-how!

And to ensure that attendees can connect and celebrate together, we’ll feature a Welcome Reception Thursday, September 19th as well as events on Friday and Saturday like a Pub Crawl on Franklin Street and a Social Activity (like a Night at Bosse Field, a Haunted Evansville Tour, or Film event at the Koch Immersive Theater).
