ADFEST is now accepting speaker and workshop proposal submissions from leaders in the creative, communications, production and technology sectors to be part of ADFEST 2017, which runs from 22nd to 25th March in Pattaya, Thailand.
“In 20 years, ADFEST has grown and adapted into a festival that truly reflects creativity that’s ‘Made in Asia’, while also providing a window to the future. Next year, we intend to put together our most inspiring line-up of speakers and workshops yet to ensure our 20th Anniversary celebrations are remembered long after everyone leaves the festival,” says Jimmy Lam, President of ADFEST.
ADFEST 2017 will consist of two separate programs: Craft@ADFEST, which runs on 22nd and 23rd March; and Creative@ADFEST, which runs on 24th and 25th March. Whereas Craft@ADFEST will explore the technologies and trends influencing production, post and digital companies, Creative@ADFEST is tailored for agency and marketing professionals.
“If you are in the creative, communications, production, or tech industry and have groundbreaking insights to share, we’d love to hear from you. Everyone is welcome to submit more than one proposed topic, but please remember that our delegates want to hear inspiring creative, groundbreaking content – not sales pitches. It’s also a good idea to specify whether your session is better suited to Craft@ADFEST or Creative@ADFEST,” says Kem Suraphongchai, ADFEST’s Festival Director.
Craft@ADFEST will cover production, digital, and technology content trends, such as virtual reality, animation, music and special effects, whereas Creative@ADFEST speakers and workshops will focus on pushing the boundaries of the creative and communication industry.
The theme of ADFEST 2017 is ‘20 Years of Diversity’, celebrating the festival’s evolution over the past two decades into an event that rewards world-class creativity from one of the most diverse continents in the world.
ADFEST will provide all speakers and workshop presenters with free passes to next year’s festival. Please note that T&A is not provided.
