Ad 2 Dallas, the young professional division of AAF Dallas, is proud to present our 32 Under 32 Awards program.

Ad 2 Dallas aims to shine a spotlight on the rising stars who are continuously making a difference in our advertising community here in Dallas. With this goal in mind, we’re kicking off Dallas’ 3rd annual 32 Under 32 award program. Similar to Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list, the 32 Under 32 program recognizes 32 local professionals under the age of 32 for their extraordinary accomplishments. This is a night for celebration as we raise our glass to these passionate, forward-thinking, and motivated professionals, and applaud them for the work they’ve accomplished so early on in their careers. See last year's group here

The Ad 2 Dallas 32 Under 32 Reception presented by Temerlin Advertising Institute will be held at House of Blues on October 23, 2019. Dress code is semi-formal. Table reservations will begin today for recipients and their companies and underwriters. This event has consistently sold out so there are no individual ticket sales at this time. Please register for our mailing list if you would like to be notified if individual tickets go on sale. For information about tables reservations and to underwrite this event reach out to Allison Farris at [email protected]

We’re thrilled to announce the third class of Ad 2 Dallas' 32 Under 32. These are the young professionals who will take our industry into the future and putting the Dallas advertising and marketing community community to heights we have never seen before! Congratulations!
