More than 1,000 of Los Angeles’ biggest thinkers in advertising gathered in the Beverly Hilton International Ballroom for the ninth annual ThinkLA IDEA Awards Gala to celebrate advertising’s greatest people, work, and companies in the region in 2018.

Presenting sponsor Teads set the tone with an elegant party atmosphere. The awards, which recognized Southern California’s most illuminated creative and tech-savvy brains, was produced by
ThinkLA, the nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering Los Angeles’ media, marketing, and advertising communities.

Other sponsors included Samsung Ads, TuneIn, Vevo, Xandr, NOM, Premion, Amobee, Twitter, imgur, Tremor Video DSP, Exponential, Blis, Conversant, and LoopMe. Production partners included Dash Two, Jukin Media, PopShorts, Rapport, Hope Creative, and V3.

The evening’s events included a cocktail reception and dinner, followed by dinner and the awards show, and concluded with an after-party on the Beverly Hilton pool deck.

During the gala, presenters bestowed agencies, brands, and individuals with achievement awards for the best annual campaigns, companies, and professionals in their fields. Submissions, which were produced by and/or for Southern California-based companies and launched in the 2018 calendar year, were judged by key advertising, brand, and tech executives outside of the L.A. market.
