About Trailblazer

The Trailblazer Award was established in 1997 by the American Advertising Federation-Houston to recognize business leaders who have built Houston companies through effective advertising, sound marketing, and corporate citizenship. Through their marketing, these trailblazers have enhanced their companies' images and the City of Houston’s reputation. 

The Trailblazer Gala brings together an audience of influential business, media and advertising professionals to honor a remarkable individual who personifies the spirit of the trailblazer and to celebrate that person’s energy, ingenuity, imagination, and vision. Supporting the Trailblazer Gala supports the work of the AAF-Houston and its educational and professional development initiatives, internships, annual student conference, and scholarship program.
