Ad Stars caught by the CB Asia camera

AdStars_GoodTimes26.jpgAdStars_GoodTimes1.jpgThe Ad Stars 2009 Busan International Advertising Festival proved to be a lot of fun. As a first time visitor to the Festival, Campaign Brief Asia didn't really know what to expect. The first thing you notice on arrival at the airport is the flash of cameras and film crews as each overseas delegate is welcomed and whisked away, movie star style, in a black BMW 7 Series limo. This same level of hospitality continued throughout the entire four days. The Festival is very well run and funded and is extremely well staffed.

And when it comes to atmosphere, networking, partying all night and meeting new and old friends the Ad Stars Festival is right up there with the best of them.

Get there next year if you can!

Jeez, don't they allow ugly women into Ad Stars.

11.46 - think about this - it's free!! Drop Spikes as it's just a watered down cannes and put in this Ad Stars (even though i've never heard of it) and we all save money!

Is anybody here in Singapore actually going to Spikes? I don't know anybody that is a delegate apart from our MD.

Spikes is $1100 to attend. This is too much for our agency this year. The speaker sessions look good however.

The V sign - hey, it's a Korean thing when a camera appears. Big deal. The english have their non smiling red faces, Aussies have their beer held high. Thais - well they can do whatever they want in my book. Who cares. It looks like it was a great time.
