On October 10, 2019, Coblentz is hosting the 10th annual event for the advertising and creative services industries, called Rise&Shine. The morning program is co-hosted with the American Association of Advertising Agencies and features notable speakers from advertising agencies and creative services firms that speak on a variety of topics of interest to the industry.

Ten years ago, the firm first presented a morning event where industry leaders and visionaries could share their insights and experiences. Rise&Shine has been going strong ever since, and welcomes senior advertising executives and creatives from the U.S. and abroad at the annual event.
