The 33rd Annual ACE Awards

Presented By Edmonton International Airport

The ACE Awards this year was a huge success! I’m not just saying that because I am on the board of directors for probably the best looking group Edmonton has to offer, however, I am saying that because after speaking with creative directors, account executives and students they all had the same thing to say: “Great venue, good food, more opportunity to network”. Ryan Jespersen and Kari Skelton, of CityTV, sure took the stage with their dapper pilot and flight attendant outfits. 

Incite Marketing provided the creative from the lit up signs throughout the hallway leading into the Edmonton Events Centre, to the banners on stage and the ACE Air flight guide seen here below and more!

Lastly, a huge thanks go out to Renee Baranieski (Red the Agency) and Jon Manning (Free) were the master-minds behind this years event. Hats off to this dynamic duo.
