Well it snowed, but it didn’t stop 15 college students from walking the downtown corridor and visiting 6 agencies to learn what they do, what their office is like, what opportunities await in the future, and what dogs they have to pet. Students started at the South end of Main Street at Crowley Webb and headed North moving on to Luminus, The Revs, The Martin Group, dPost, and ending the day at Block Club.
This event was a great opportunity to see the variety in both sizes and styles of local agencies. Crowley Webb and The Martin Group being the larger of agencies on the stop offered a great look into the full-service, multi-department side of agency life. Luminus, The Revs, dPost, and Block Club each offered a look into the personality and grind that the mid-sized agencies bring to the local ad landscape (also dogs, these 4 all have dogs).
This inaugural event sold out in 24 hours. There is a strong desire from the local college student body to visit and learn about agencies in our area and uncover the mystery. AAF Buffalo will look to provide more of these opportunities in the future with the help of our member companies. We look forward to the next one!
