AdAsia serves as the ideal platform to bring together like minded professionals to meet, network and share ideas on a global scale, helping in the overall growth and development of the community at large. I would urge my friends from the industry to try and send as many delegates from their organisation to represent India in its full strength.”

Elaborating on the announcement, Bipin R Pandit, Chief Operating Officer – The Advertising Club, said, “AdAsia, a biennial event, is one of the most looked forward to event within the advertising community.
