Honors Night

AEF’s annual Honors Night is a very special way we acknowledge how all our industry stakeholders and partners – including those from the worlds of advertising, media and marketing – contribute to education and the development of tomorrow’s outstanding talent.

Every year our Honors Night gala recognizes one outstanding organization from each of our constituencies – marketers, agencies and media – for its accomplishments in the industry and for its support of the AEF’s mission. A Lifetime Achievement Award is also presented to an individual for exceptional contributions to the industry and society. Dinner proceeds help fulfill AEF’s educational initiatives for professors and students and contribute to building the next generation of talent.

Honors Night 2022 will be held Monday, October 3 at The Pierre in NYC – please join us!


"Great mix of technical info and real life experience to justify it. Easily the best guest lecture I’ve had in college. So relevant and informative."
