All of us on the Student Advertising Summit committee have been working very hard to make this year’s SAS the best yet! This year, we are excited to present a special pre-SAS networking event. The event, called “Our Opening Act,” will be held on January 29 at FRWD from 6-8pm. Both students and professionals are welcome to attend, and students will have the opportunity to register for the Student Advertising Summit at a discounted rate of $35! In addition to discounted registration, attendees will have the chance to tour FRWD, engage in pre-SAS networking, and hear from guest speaker Matt Doherty.
Matt Doherty serves as the Director of Shopper Marketing and Mobile at FRWD. Since joining the agency in 2011 upon FRWD’s acquisition of his LA-based mobile agency of employment BrandinHand, Matt has worked to develop mobile strategies for CPG clients. Through his work, FRWD is poised to emerge as a key agency to watch as more brands turn to mobile and shopper marketing. At “Our Opening Act,” Matt will share his insights on mobile marketing and how to break into the industry.

This event is a great opportunity to practice your networking skills, which as we’ve all heard time and time again, are essential in this industry. You will have the opportunity to meet and network with industry experts, many of whom will likely attend the SAS as speakers or round-table networking hosts. By meeting these folks, you will already be ahead of the game at the SAS as you’ll have established contacts and begun to grow your network! Preparation is key, so be sure to research the agency, bone up on industry news, and follow the industry experts on Twitter and LinkedIn.
We hope to see you all there!
