The organisers of Spikes Asia, the regional APAC awards and festival for creative excellence in advertising and communications, are pleased to confirm that the 2012 Festival will take place from 16-18 September at Suntec, Singapore.
Attendees can look forward to an outstanding learning programme featuring around 30 seminars and six workshops given by industry leaders from around the world, as well as exhibitions of the best work from the region while showcases from the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity will display the best in creativity and communications from across the globe. Once again, un-missable networking events will be on offer including Networking After Dark which will see Singaporean agencies opening their doors for an evening of fun and socialising while Festival opening drinks and the Awards After Party will provide further networking opportunities to delegates.
Last year, Spikes Asia saw its biggest Festival to date with over 1700 delegates attending the 3-day event. A record 3647 entries, a 19% increase on the previous year, were received into the 14 entry categories of Film, Print, Outdoor, Direct, Promo & Activation, Media, Radio, Design, Film Craft, Print Craft, Integrated, Digital, Mobile and PR.
Myriam Coupard, Festival Director of Spikes Asia, says, "Spikes Asia is a true celebration of creativity in the region and provides the industry with a unique and inspiring content programme while offering unrivalled networking and learning opportunities. Year on year the Festival is growing and following last year’s record attendance and entries we’re expecting a bigger turn out from across a wider region and we’re delighted to be able to continue to build and develop the event to make 2012 the best yet."
