Last year, we held the first ever Ad Age Small Agency Awards. This year, we're adding a little something extra: a conference. Together with Creativity, we hope to "deliver a first of its kind conference for small and mid-sized agencies to gather and discuss the unique challenges faced by this market." That and at least one cocktail party. It will be held in New Orleans July 14-15 (sign up now while you're cold and buried under snow). We're still working out the agenda, but you can get more details as we get them at the official website.
