The mission of ThinkLA is to connect, inspire and educate the LA marketing community. We connect and elevate the awareness of LA's creative community among national marketers by fostering ideas, business and talent. We inspire through education, social and philanthropic events that align with the needs of the ad community. We educate, offering training support with an emphasis on diverse multi-cultural representation and improving skills in emerging areas of marketing.



ThinkLA is a nonprofit association founded to promote Los Angeles as a network of creativity and innovation in media, marketing, and advertising.


We offer unique membership experiences:

  • Unparalleled networking and social activities
  • Year-round knowledge-building through our events and programs
  • Volunteering and giving to industry-related charities like Ad Relief and MAT Program
  • Facilitating, curating and promoting relevant news and content


We believe that the best ideas come from collaboration. We showcase innovative and results-oriented interactive marketing. In doing so, we increase our collective knowledge and inspire future success.


In July 2006, three leading organizations in our industry – the Los Angeles Advertising Agencies Association, the Ad Club of Los Angeles and the Magazine Representatives Association – merged to create a new organization called ThinkLA. ThinkLA is a nonprofit, mutual benefit 501(c)(6) trade association.

ThinkLA was born to promote Los Angeles as a world center of creative thinking and innovation in marketing and media and to bring more clients and talent to the region.

ThinkLA Manifesto

Think dreamers.
Think visionaries.
Think geniuses.
Think directors, musicians, innovators, and producers.
Think writers, media buyers and imagineers.
Think brilliant minds coming together to change the world on a daily basis.
Think the kind of collaboration that happens nowhere else on earth.
Think of a place where impossibilities become realities.
Where a great idea can come from anywhere.
Where can't becomes did.
Where anything is possible.
Think of a city that's also a philosophy.
Think of a spot on the map that calls out to all those who dare imagine.
Think of the global mecca of creativity.
Think LA.
