You’re invited to a night of celebration at the 51st annual American Advertising Awards! Mingle with fellow advertising professionals, browse the entries on display, and toast to another year of creative excellence at the stunning Eastbank Venue & Lounge in downtown Cedar Rapids. The AAAs are all about community – so this year we lowered our prices to make the gala more accessible to more members of our community. It’s not just about the awards, it’s about the connections we make as marketers and advertisers. Join us.

When: 6:00 – 9:00 p.m.

What: With your ticket, you will receive a drink ticket (for those 21+), hors d’oeuvres, and seat to the best ad awards show in town.
