The Festival of Media Asia Pacific (FOMAP) is back for its third year. Taking place from March 16-18, 2014 at the Capella Singapore, the Festival brings together media owners, agencies and brands for three days of networking, celebration and speaker sessions.

“The theme of this year’s event is ‘Agility’, and will see influential speakers sharing unique regional perspectives on how businesses can be more ‘agile’ in adapting to the ever-changing media landscape,” said Charlie Crowe, Founder of Festival of Media and Chairman of C Squared. “Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about some of the most topical issues affecting the industry today, whilst getting the chance to network with a broad range of media companies from across Asia.”
