AICP Midwest Show is this Thursday, November 19

(This year’s AICP Midwest Show will be virtual)

One of the most exciting stops on the AICP tour happens every year in Chicago. It’s one of the few opportunities for those in production, advertising and film to gather together, share a cocktail or four and just hang. This year, with a pandemic raging and cases on the rise again, the AICP Midwest Show will happen on ZOOM.

But according to Lisa Masseur, President of AICP Midwest and Tessa Films, it will still be a one-of-a-kind evening.

“During the virtual hour, we’ll be viewing past AICP winning work, hearing from some past winners, and socializing in smaller breakout room groups and picking our “All time Best of the Midwest” AICP winners. And for AdProm 2020 – no need to dress up,” Masseur told Reel Chicago.
