"Asia Pacific is a fantastically creative region producing some outstanding work. In an industry where integration is becoming the norm, the opportunity to meet and mix with people from all sectors of the business is now more critical than ever before. We are being challenged and the opportunity to challenge each other, irrespective of what sector you work in - creative agency, media agency or client side - is of utmost importance. Spikes will be the place where this all comes together," he continued.
