As political debates heat up, we thought it was more than appropriate to sponsor the AAPC Mid-Atlantic and FastPay happy hour at Ladder 15 – a restored Philadelphia fire station turned bar and restaurant. It was a fitting setting for those that often find themselves putting out political fires for a living.

The venue was decked out in patriotic decorations, with American flag balloons arranged from top to bottom. Adding to the All-American theme, we catered cheesesteaks and pretzels because when in Philly, how could we not? Of course, there was also an open bar serving up some delicious beverages for everyone to sip on and talk shop in our nation’s first capital.

“It’s always a pleasure to partner with our friends at the AAPC Mid-Atlantic chapter to bring together agencies, media publishers, rep firms, and other industry participants. We were just lucky enough to host it in a city with such rich political history as the backdrop,” said Theresa Mueller, VP of Payment Sales at FastPay.

“I really enjoyed hearing about plans for the 2020 cycle and the buying activity that is already occurring,”  said Brendan Kelleher, Relationship Manager at FastPay.

Everyone has thoughts about how the 2020 cycle will shake out, but it seems that one thing is for sure— it will be a wild ride. The AAPC were gracious hosts, and the rich American history of Philadelphia made the perfect location to host the Mid-Atlantic chapter meet-up!
