AFAA to honour Goutam Rakshit at AdAsia 2007 in South Korea

The Asian Federation of Advertising Association (AFAA) will present an honorary award to Goutam Rakshit, Founder and Managing Director, Advertising Avenues, for his outstanding contribution to the advertising industry in India. The award would be presented on October 22 at the opening ceremony of AdAsia 2007 in Jeju Island, Korea. The awards will be given in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of Adasia and the 30th anniversary of the AFAA.

Much to India’s pride, Rakshit will be the only Indian in the prestigious list of honourees at the AdAsia 2007.

Rakshit was Chairman of the AFAA in 2003 and President of AdAsia 2003 in Jaipur. He has acted in the presidential roles for organisations like the Audit Bureau of Circulations (ABC), the Advertising Standard Council of India (ASCI), and the Advertising Agencies’ Association of India (AAAI) where he was elected President thrice.

Commenting on this momentous achievement, Rakshit said, “This award is not arecognition of an individual. Rather, it is recognition of the fast growing Indian advertising industry. It will be an honour to receive this award, and I am looking forward to receiving it on behalf of the entire Indian advertising industry.”

When asked about India’s chances of winning the bid for 2011, Rakshit said, “A lot of Asians during the 2003 Adasia were skeptical on India’s ability to host an event as big as this, but then it turned out to be a huge success. So I think India has fair chance of winning the bid for 2011, as the organisers of AdAsia would be more than delighted to come to India.”
