AdFest invites speaker submissions to present at AdFest 2018; proposals due by Friday, January 5

ADFEST IS NOW CALLING FOR SPEAKER SUBMISSIONS TO PRESENT AT ADFEST 2018 (1).jpgIf you are in the creative, communications, production, or tech industries and have groundbreaking insights to share, AdFest would love to hear from you. The festival is now accepting submissions to present at AdFest 2018, which runs from 21-24 March 2018 at the Peach Royal Cliff Resort, Pattaya, Thailand with the theme "Transform".

Whether you're interested in giving a talk, sharing a case study, hosting an interactive debate or moderating a panel discussion, each session runs for 40 minutes and represents an opportunity to share your knowledge with the region's top creative thinkers.
AdFest is also accepting submissions to host workshops during next year's festival, which are
"hands-on" learning experiences for smaller groups with high levels of interaction and engagement.

Says Kem Suraphongchai, festival director, AdFest: "As one of the most established advertising festivals in the Asia Pacific, AdFest is lucky to attract an eclectic mix of high-profile speakers. The theme of AdFest 2018 is 'Transform', so we're looking for experts who can shed light on how brands and businesses should adapt and evolve at a time when consultancies, new media and new technologies are all having a radical impact on the business of creativity."

"Remember, our delegates want to hear inspiring creative, groundbreaking content, and not sales pitches! Our most popular sessions are those that dive deep into the trends shaping our industry, or that look beyond advertising and marketing to examine technology and cultural trends more broadly."

AdFest 2018 will consist of two streams: Craft@ADFEST, which is dedicated to production, digital, and technology trends such as virtual reality, animation, music, special effects; and Creative@ADFEST, which is more focused on pushing the boundaries of the creative and communication industry. It's a good idea to specify whether the proposed content is more suitable as part of the Craft@ADFEST (21 - 22 March) or Creative@ADFEST (23 - 24 March) program.

Submit your proposal online at by 5th January 2018.

Successful applicants will be notified before the end of January 2018. For more information, visit
