Join us on November 4th at Principal Park for the two great American past-times, baseball and advertising. Below is your starting lineup for an all-day experience in the Des Moines Ad Community:


First Pitch

The game starts with All-Star client, the Iowa Cubs, taking to the field with some curveballs from the local community. Your team is on deck, ready to knock ‘em out of the park, with the best ideas the Des Moines Ad-Land series has ever seen.  


7th Inning Stretch

Take a well-deserved lunch break as pro players from Strategic America stop in for a run-down of their Ad-Land Series win with the Aureon Rebrand case study.


Victory Lap

Finally, you’ll hop on a bus for a victory tour of the Des Moines Area market. You and your team will get a chance to visit the pros players in their home stadiums at the Integer Group, Lessing Flynn, and Trilix.
