How refreshing has GoaFest 2010 been for you?

Sudha Natrajan, President and COO, Lintas Media Group:

GoaFest is always such an invigorating and refreshing experience for me. I’ve seen it improving year on year and it has today attained the stature of being on the world advertising map as an event of high repute. The work and play equation at the event is really good. The weather clouds, too, this time were benevolent and we did not get baked!

Santosh Padhi, Chief Creative Officer & Co-founder, Taproot India:

It could have been a lot better than what we saw and heard, and there were plenty of loopholes in the entire judging process as well. What happened in the past looks better to me. We had to learn from the past and move forward, but it looks like the usual. Our egos are stopping us from borrowing from the past. I think it’s high time we all come together to demand and implement certain things to save this festival, which have been ignored again and again.

Manish Bhatt:

Goa as a location has always been refreshing to ad folks. GoaFest as a Concept 7 format was also refreshing when it started. But now there is a subliminal fatigue. Looking at it as a platform having the potential and power of addressing/ interacting/ communicating to 4,000 ad guys, I think it’s not refreshing enough this year.

Prasanna Sankhe:

Besides being a relaxed and almost a yearly opportunity to catch up with old colleagues and friends, the freshness of the ideas and campaigns and the emerging talent in the industry always makes GoaFest an experience to look forward to.

Ajay Kakar, CMO – Financial Services, Aditya Birla Group:

There is always scope for improvement – let’s not deny that. But today, GoaFest is the only national platform to voice, discuss and learn from – on matters pertaining to the world of advertising, media and marketing. A point to ponder… While the Aditya Birla Financial Services Group is attending with possibly the largest client contingent, I do wish there were many more clients who attended and strengthened this platform.
