GoaFest 2008: The celebrations begin…

The sea, sun, sand and surf make a heady combination and when one has a generous sprinkling of the best of India’s advertising gathered at one place, it is celebration time with the GoaFest getting underway on April 4. This very celebratory aspect was brought to the fore when Madhukar Kamath, President, AAAI, said, “We are celebrating the third year of GoaFest. This year, we are seeing the participation of over 3,000 delegates. It takes huge logistics and hard work to get so many people together.”

Throwing open GoaFest 2008, Goa Chief Minister Digambar Kamat, said, “I am very happy to be present here for the inaugral session. Goa has become a permanent place for film festivals and I hope it will become a permanent venue for GoaFest as well, and the Government will support this venture in years to come. Goa is today considered the best international tourist destination in the world.”

Speaking at the event, Bhaskar Das, President, Ad Club Bombay, said, “I have been coming to GoaFest every year as a delegate. This is my first year at the Ad Club. We are realising the potential that this industry has and the enthusiasm amongst the industry leaders can be seen at the GoaFest.”

A very enthusiastic JagDip Bakshi, who has been steering the GoaFest committee, said, “This GoaFest is already bigger than the Ad Club and I am sure it will be bigger than Cannes in the next two years! I am sure if we get the proper infrastructure in place, we can make Goa the permanent destination for GoaFest.”
