September 20 – 21, 2019


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 contribute, 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 an Opening Reception the night before the conference as well as events each evening like a Pub Crawl (through one of the many districts of  Evansville like Downtown, Franklin Street, or Haynie’s Corner) and a Social Activity (like a Night at Bosse Field, a Haunted Evansville Tour, or Film event at the Koch Immersive Theater).
