Do you have a hidden talent for pitching wacky ideas in a confined space? Do you love beer, networking and arcade games? Itching for an opportunity to showcase your creative ideas? Well look no further! Join the University of Alberta Marketing Association for our second annual Pitches for Pitchers. What is PFP you might ask? Read closely below... this might get a bit confusing!
How it works:
1) Choose a partner!
2) Upon purchasing a ticket, you and your partner will sign up for a 30 minute block between 6-8pm.
3) On March 3, half an hour before your presentation time, you will be given a case document (therefore, your overall time commitment is 1 hour)
4) When it's your turn, you and your partner will begin on the ground floor in the Tory elevators. You will have approximately 2 minutes (the length of the elevator ride) to pitch your idea for a superbowl ad for our chosen comedic company concept.
