Honors Night 2021
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.
