Join us as we celebrate the people, brands, and companies who are making the impossible possible

In 1961, when John F. Kennedy announced to the world that we would land a man on the moon before the decade was out, many thought he was shooting for the impossible. But we did it. The Moonshot was achieved exactly 50 years ago this summer.

From Copernicus to Neil Armstrong, there have always been those visionaries who set their sights higher than anyone else can imagine. Innovators whose dreams seem unattainable—sometimes, downright laughable—only to become the standard bearers for progress.

Today, we have our own Moonshots in the making. Join The Ad Club on October 16th, 2019 at WBUR City Space as we celebrate these trailblazers of the future: the people, brands, and companies who are daring to revolutionize reality.
