Five years ago, the Festival of Media was launched in Venice as a platform aimed at discussing, debating, and learning about one of the most ubiquitous, albeit important tools of our generation – the Media. It drew a global leadership of media conglomerates, agencies and the most innovative media owners and marketers who saw this as an opportunity to discuss the ever changing, dynamic field of media.
Over the years, the Festival of Media has firmly established itself as the premier media event to attend, where the who’s who of the media industry will be present. The impressive line up of Speakers each year is testimony to the scale and importance of the Festival.
Notable past speakers include communications pioneers such as Jimmy Wales, the founder of Wikipedia; Biz Stone, the founder of Twitter; Ben Silverman, President of NBC Universal and Jon Miller, President of Digital at News Corporation. Many of the world’s most influential CMOs at leading branded goods companies have spoken, as well as many unique individuals including the former President of Mexico, Vicente Fox and Viviane Reding, Commissioner at the European Union.
Asia – a powerful force in the global media industry – can no longer be ignored. The inaugural Festival of Media Asia 2011 has been launched to address the unique issues and challenges faced in the Asian region. The Festival will offer the chance for delegates to reflect on the many changes taking place in the region's communications landscape, understand the global trends that are influencing the industry, and learn how prominent brands tackle a region so diverse in culture and reach. It is the place to learn about best practices from media giants and gain valuable networking time with some of the most coveted names in the media industry.
The Festival of Media Asia will end with the much anticipated Awards Show cum Gala Dinner which will celebrate creativity and innovation at its best. Winning a Festival of Media Award demonstrates that the recipient is a leader in its creative and innovative media thinking, and is delivering effective, impactful solutions to brand marketing challenges.
Among the Festival’s impressive lineup of Speakers are Chris Burggraeve, Chief Marketing Office of AB InBev and President of the World Federation of Advertisers; Carolyn Everson, Vice President of Global marketing Solutions at Facebook; Peter Knights, Executive Director of WildAid and S.Y. Lau, President of Online Business, Tencent.
The Festival of Media Asia will be held on the 13 to 15 November 2011 at the prestigious Marina Bay Sands Hotel, Singapore. Special rates for the accommodation of the delegates of The Festival of Media Asia have been arranged.
