Record Number of Entries for Spikes Asia 2011 - 1000 Delegates Registred So Far

SINGAPORE, Sept 1, 2011 - (ACN Newswire) - Taking place in just a few weeks time, Spikes Asia, the regional awards and festival celebrating Asia Pacific's creative excellence in advertising and communications, has received a 20% increase in entries versus 2010 and so far 1,000 delegates have already registered to attend this year's three-day event.

As the last few entries are being checked, over 3,600 pieces of work have already been processed and are waiting to be judged in Singapore later this month by 55 regional and international creatives and industry leaders. Whilst the final number of entries submitted in the fourteen different categories - Print, Outdoor, Digital, Direct, Promo & Activation, Media, Design, Radio, Film, Print & Poster Craft, Film Craft and new for this year, PR and Mobile - will be announced in the next few days, this will be a record year for the annual event.

Spikes Asia delegates can look forward to an intense and interesting festival programme, featuring an exciting line-up of 27 seminars and six workshops. Speakers include: Remi Babinet, Chairman of BETC Euro RSCG and Global Chief Creative Officer of Havas; Jeff Benjamin, Partner and Chief Creative Officer of Crispin Porter + Bogusky; Bobby Chinn, Chef, Restauranteur, Author and TV Presenter; Daniel Morel, Chairman and CEO of Wunderman; James Thompson, Asia Pacific CMO, Diageo; Michael Wall, Global CEO of Lowe and Partners; and John Wren, President and CEO of Omnicom Group, amongst many others http://www.spikes.asia/festival/speakers/

All seminars will be simultaneously translated into Japanese, Korean and Mandarin, an additional benefit for attendees.

"A record number of entries, around 1,000 delegates already registered to attend - with more registering daily - and an excellent content programme, Spikes Asia 2011 is shaping up to be a great event," comments Terry Savage, Festival Chairman. "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.
