Sandage Symposium


The Metropolitan, 66th floor of Willis Tower, 233 S. Wacker Dr., Chicago

The Charles H. Sandage Department of Advertising at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign—the first advertising program in the country—is bringing together advertising agencies, tech firms, and educators to collaborate on envisioning the future of advertising education and research.

In its 60th year, Advertising at Illinois educates the industry’s next generation of leaders to be prepared for, and to innovate with, a rapidly changing media ecosystem. Amidst such change and disruption, it’s time to invite all stakeholders to a broader discussion imagining what the future of advertising will look like, and what criteria is necessary for developing advertising talent.
