ChristmACE 2020: Working From Home, Alone, Too


Not a surprise: ChristmACE, as we once knew it, is no longer possible.

Surprise: With the support of ZGM Modern Marketing Partners, we’ve gathered three of the industry’s biggest, baddest names in advertising. Palmer Stamnes DDB’s Frank Palmer, ATB Financial’s Carol Shmygol and Ray’s Jeff McLean to take part in a virtual panel, reflecting on the very strange year that was (or still is, for that matter).

Open to everyone, join us as these industry leaders speak on what they’ve learned, where they’re headed and what it means for all of us in a casual, interactive setting. Interspersed through it all will be great giveaways and assorted digital merrymaking.

Tickets are only $10 for ACE Members and $20 for non-members, with half of all ticket proceeds going to NABS, helping to support members of our community through what may be a particularly difficult holiday season.
