Chairperson's Message

"The APPIES is a 2-day Festival of Excellence, Sharing and Accelerated Learning from among the best marketing programs across the Asia Pacific. Teams of brand marketers and campaign creators are put to the test in a 4-6-20 LIVE presentation format which is unique in allowing active involvement not only from an A-list of judges but by the delegates as well."

RELEARN EVERYTHING. The marketing landscape is changing and undergoing disruption at an alarmingly accelerated rate. Our consumers are evolving and ways to reach them are proliferating, particularly with the advent of digital and mobile. It is certainly imperative for modern marketers to keep abreast of the latest thinking, media and tools at our disposal; as well as stay fresh, brave and be willing to take clever risks. With even 4-5 years now considered an eternity, continued success requires regular updating of one's marketing repertoire and replenishment of creative energies. Known as the "TED for Marketing", the APPIES is unique among marketing award shows globally, in that it is designed to concurrently provide a platform for participants to gain an in-depth view of what lies behind leading campaigns from across the region. The 4-6-20 format involves presentation to a panel of top marketers in the presence of a live audience, and both judges and delegates have opportunities to fire questions at the presenters. This makes for excitement, energy and a ton of great insights to benefit from. Those privileged to attend will surely leave this event with expanded horizons, inspired ideas and updated thinking ... leaving them wanting more and ready for what lies ahead.
