REBUS is a network of advertising professionals in St. Louis that gets together nine times a year to collaborate, get creative, and socialize. Generally, these get-togethers come in the form of agency visits, where attendees have a chance to rub elbows with the various agencies of St. Louis over a beer and an appetizer. Sometimes, however, the events are a bit looser and give REBUS members a chance to experience another side of agency life. Wherever we are, wherever the BUS goes, we're having fun and loving the business of advertising in St. Louis.
