Advertising Week Freshman: Mariam still hasn't found what she's looking for

Huge's Mariam Aldhahi has more questions than answers during her first day at the big show.

Advertising Week Freshman: Mariam still hasn't found what she's looking for
NEW YORK — Mariam Aldhahi, a design editor at Huge, is looking for answers at her first Advertising Week. So far, however, she says she's encountered more questions. 
One of four first-time showgoers who have agreed to share their experiences with Campaign US, Aldahi says her first day at Advertising Week included insights about fast, good or cheap content; women as creative leaders; and "The Nightly Show" 's Larry Wilmore's presentation about creating content for different industries.
While she's excited about the event, Aldahi is still puzzling over solutions to the issues raised. "Based on the lineup I saw of the speakers that were coming, I was expecting a lot of answers," she said, "and so far, what I've gotten are a lot of questions.

"It's kind of comforting, in a way because these same people who are way higher up than I am in the industry are asking the same questions that we ask every day."
