HOT SEAT - 2018 Ad Year in Review Hot Seat  
Wednesday, December 5, 2018 8:00 AM - 9:30 AM
Havas Chicago, 36 E Grand, Chicago 60611

In a year that’s seen the #metoo movement, a wild ride of agency wins and losses, Mark Zuckerberg in a suit, and GDP huh?,  CAF will look back and take stock of all the highs, the lows and the lessons from advertising in 2018.

Hot Seat panelists will take stock of the good, the bad and the ugly in the industry to discuss how the past year’s events have impacted our industry.  We will also look ahead to things we can expect in 2019 and what we can do to prepare for the year ahead.
