Work hard and party harder - Chennai and Bangalore Ad Clubs show the way

All work and no play make everybody dull, and no one realises this better than the ad clubs. The Chennai and Bangalore Ad Clubs have lined up a series of events - both work and fun - for their members in the coming months.

To begin with, there are annual tournaments coming up for table tennis, carrom and cricket enthusiasts in Chennai, and parallely there is a bowling tournament lined up for the Bangaloreans.

Creative workshops and seminars promise to stimulate the grey cells, as do the annual quizzes. The tea-meetings planned will see talks by advertising and marketing professionals with a plethora of international ads to be watched.

If that isn't fun enough, there are treasure hunts, fashion shows and music concerts lined up as well this year. 'Deadline' is a Chennai Ad Club format where agencies get to do their most loved creative work for social causes, where they can get really creative, but within a set deadline. Chennai is also brining back 'Ad Otsav' this year, where advertising professionals get a platform to showcase their other talents apart from work.

"These events reinforce the fun and youthful spirit that mark advertising, and offer an opportunity to the advertising fraternity to interact on an informal basis," is what Minitha Saxena, President, Chennai Ad Club has to say about all these activities lined up for the year.

According to her, all these activities this year would also gear people up for the 2006 activities that were already being planned on a huge scale.

The Chennai Ad Club also organises a Post Graduate Diploma course for aspiring advertising students. This one-year course with classes being held in the evenings is hugely popular here.
