How to invite 500,000 of your closest friends to Oshkosh

Join us on Monday, June 18th at Alliant Energy Center as our guest speakers Dick Knapinski, Director of Communications and Amy Reese, Marketing Operations Manager of Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) share EAA's unique Wisconsin Success Story.

EAA AirVenture is the world’s largest fly-in convention and one of Wisconsin’s crown jewels of tourism. It attracts a half-million people from 80 countries and 10,000 airplanes to Oshkosh each summer. It also has an economic impact of more than $170 million each year for the five counties in the Fox Valley, and even more through the rest of the state. How does EAA market an event that means different things to so many people?

Amy and Dick will talk about…
•Marketing to diverse audiences, from pure aviation geeks to casual tourists
•Transitioning from traditional media to today’s wide media mix
•Projecting the Oshkosh experience instead of just an air show
•Engaging visitors as customers and brand evangelists

Check out the video below from our guest speakers from EAA!

If you've ever spent any time with the American Advertising Federation of Madison, you connected with the enthusiastic smile of Lois Weiland. As Executive Director for over 25 years, Lois was the life blood that flowed through AAF Madison. Because of her ability to instantly connect with people and promote AAF, Lois helped maintain and grow our membership during her tenure. She was a fearless fundraiser in attaining everything necessary to run a successful association including volunteers, sponsorships and donations. While the Board of Directors and committee members change after every election, Lois was the trusted constant source of information and organization. It is fitting to honor Lois and her contributions to AAF by naming this Excellence in Service Award The Weily after her.
