The Festival of Media Comes to Asia

SINGAPORE, Oct 14, 2011 - (ACN Newswire) - The Festival of Media, the world's first festival of media creativity and innovation, will be coming to the Asia this November. Running from November 13 to November 15, 2011, the festival will take place at the highly acclaimed Marina Bay Sands Hotel in Singapore.

The Festival of Media Asia will bring the finest selection of global media and marketing talent to the region. Repeating its successful model from The Festival of Media Global, the main conference stage will share the media innovations of local talent.

Marked as the most important event for the region for the influential marketers, media owners and media agency networks, the two-day Festival will combine a high-level conference, exhibition, networking sessions, and will culminate in The Festival of Media Asia Awards. The Awards celebrates the very best in media and communications across Asia.

Since its inception five years ago, The Festival of Media has doubled in size and established itself firmly on the media industry's calendar. The Festival of Media Asia is jointly organised by C Squared and Lighthouse Independent Media, the publishers of Marketing Magazine in Asia.

"Whilst of course facilitating knowledge sharing and celebrating achievements in advertising innovation within Asia, The Festival of Media Asia will also reflect on the many changes taking place in the region and impart an understanding of the global trends that are influencing the industry," says Charlie Crowe, Founder of The Festival and CEO of C Squared. He shares that this year's conference will focus around the 'talent' theme, addressing issues of staffing quality and scarcity.

Featuring some of Asia's leading decision-makers, The Festival will be the most complete and future-facing event for media creativity and innovation. It will include speakers from global leaders such as Banyan Tree, BBC, BMW, CNN, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, The Wall Street Journal Asia, Unilever and Yahoo.
