AdAsia 2013 to explore ways to re-engineer advertising

Hanoi, Vietnam will play host to AdAsia 2013 from November 11 to 14. On August 29, leaders of the various business groups sponsoring the event gathered in Ho Chi Minh city to sign partner agreements and make the formal announcement. The partners signed on for this year’s event include, Dentsu Vietnam, Dentsu Media Vietnam, Le Media Group, MMA Global (Mobile Marketing Association), Sun Flower Media Group, Vina Media Corporation, and WADA Group.

AdAsia 2013 will play host to some of the best and brightest minds from the advertising and communications industry from all over the world.

Vietnam News Agency – together with more than 45 other press agency groups – will provide sponsored information dissemination for AdAsia 2013. In addition, a number of business communications enterprises, working together with various other VAA members, will create a multimedia communications network for the event.

Several international communicators and international sponsors will support the Congress such as Dentsu, Hakuhodo, Kantar Media, IAA, IMPACT, exchange4media, and Pitch, among others.

Some of the speakers who will be sharing insights at the conference this year include Edward Pank, Managing Director, Warc Asia; John Merrifield, Chief Creative Officer of Google Asia Pacific; Annurag Batra, Chairman & Editor-in-Chief, exchange4Media, David Aaker, author of ‘Brand Relevance: Making Competitors Irrelevant’, Hermawan Kartajaya, President, World Marketing Association; Tom Doctoroff, CEO – APAC, JWT; Shubhranshu Singh, Marketing Director, India & South Asia, Visa; and Chiradeep Gupta, Global Media Innovation Manager, Unilever, among others.
