The Student Advertising Summit (SAS) is an exclusive all-day virtual event for students and young professionals looking to make connections and learn more about the advertising industry. SAS attendees have the unique opportunity to network with local professionals, get expert tips on creating an impactful resume and portfolio, and hear from industry-leading speakers.

Join us on February 12th, 2021 for the 22nd Annual Student Advertising Summit – an all-day virtual event to learn the ins and outs of the advertising industry, and hopefully walk away with a renewed sense of excitement for this ever-changing field. Overcoming the unprecedented setbacks of living in a pandemic world and creating a more inclusive environment is in our hands. Although we may be behind our screens, we can still create and stay more connected than ever.
