3AF 2020 Asian Marketing Summit

Save the date for the 3AF’s 2020 Asian Marketing Summit in Los Angeles.  The largest national conference focusing specifically on Asian American marketing and advertising, the Summit is held only once a year, and is a deep dive into reaching the fastest growing consumer segment.  Our theme is how all things Asian—music, dance, food, fashion, beauty, sports, and more-- impact American mainstream culture.  The summit includes an opening night reception on June 10 and our 3AF Excellence Awards dinner on June 11. The 3AF’s mission is to help bring attention to the often under-represented Asian American community, and the 3AF Asian Marketing Summit is a great way to meet and support likeminded industry partners.
