MEET THE PROS

FEBRUARY 18TH & 19TH 2019

SCOTT CONFERENCE CENTER, OMAHA

PRESENTED BY:

Create Well With Others

You’ve dutifully met deadlines, slogged through collaborations and critiques, and challenged convention with your own ideas about creativity and career. Now, take the next step – at Meet the Pros 2019 in Omaha, February 18th & 19th. This is not a sit-and-listen yawn-fest. Meet the Pros 2019 makes you a participant in a once-a-year event that teams up-and-comers with been-there-done-thats. You may enter on the ground floor, but from here, anything is possible.

What Should I Expect?

Just because Meet the Pros 2019 is celebrating 56 years, don’t expect it to be the same thing as last year. We’ve got new speakers and more professionals from more categories, plus internships and scholarships for you to apply for. It’s where aspiration meets inspiration.

Don’t Wait for the Next Car

Company Tours

Monday & Tuesday

How do you know what you want if you don’t know what’s out there? Get a first hand look with company tours that will take you from entrepreneurs, small shops and nonprofits, to large agencies and corporate marketing – you may be surprised at the fit that feels right.

Portfolio and Resume Reviews

It’s not really cheating if everyone gets the answers. Find out if your portfolio and resume will get you to those critical next steps – an interview and a job offer. These face-to-face sessions help you learn how to show and talk about your work and yourself; find out what stands out in the interview; and ask questions that make a difference in getting to the next level or getting stuck between floors.

More Than Design

While designers may be the most represented group at Meet the Pros, they’re not the only ones. This year, we’ll also have more account executives, writer/producers, creative directors, interactive specialists, media planners, production managers, marketing gurus and more on hand. Be sure to engage with them. If there’s one thing they all have in common, it’s that they love to talk about themselves!

Internships

From SKAR, to Redstone, Union Pacific Railroad, First National Bank and more – learn by doing with some of the area’s most successful professionals at some of the most desirable places to work. Apply before you get to Omaha and set up your personal meet and greet. 2019 listing are coming soon!
