"It was clear after my first year as the Director of the Joint Service Open House Air Show at Andrews AFB, that my P.A. office, for various reasons, could not adequately promote future shows to the level it needed. The following year, we interviewed countless advertising agencies and thankfully we were able to bring Herb Gillen Advertising on board as a civilian contractor to supplement our existing resources. Herb Gillen Advertising gave our show a professional shine, negotiated great deals with local media, brought us outstanding PR exposure, and most important - they were very easy to work with. Our show was so successful that we had to close our gates temporarily because we were above capacity. Herb Gillen Advertising's promotional campaign did the job and got us the increase in attendance we were looking for. I would highly recommend them to any show, military or otherwise, looking to increase their attendance."
