Vinit Suraphongchai, Working Committee Chairman of the 10th Asia Pacific Advertising Festival (AdFest) has announced that AdFest 2007 will be held on March 14-17, 2007 at the Royal Cliff Beach Resort in Pattaya, Thailand.
“AdFest has grown and evolved to match developments in the industry, so we have decided to extend the event by an extra day. As the most important annual occasion when advertising, production and marketing people in the Asia Pacific region meet and learn from each other, it is our obligation to provide ample of time for delegates to view the entries, to attend the speech sessions, the awards presentation, the various parties and still find time to enjoy the sun, sea and hospitality to visitors for which Thailand is renowned,” he further said.
“I am excited to make such an announcement to celebrate the fact that AdFest has been championing and encouraging creativity in the Asia Pacific for 10 years,” said Suraphongchai, who is one of the original founders of the event.
Next year’s gathering marks the 10th anniversary of AdFest. In its first year, AdFest had attracted 200 delegates and over 800 advertising entries. In March 2006, more than 1,400 people had attended the event and nearly 5,000 entries were judged for the Lotus Awards, covering TV, Press, Outdoor, DM and Interactive categories.
AdFest 2007 is expected to continue attracting interest in the region’s best advertising and encouraging multi-cultural dialogue and learning between peers across countries and boundaries.
