If you’d like to share your knowledge of inspiring creativity, trends, and breakthroughs at ADFEST 2020, all Program Proposals must be submitted online by 30th November 2019.


ADFEST’s 2020 program is divided into two streams: Craft@ADFEST shines a spotlight on production, digital, content and technology trends and runs on 18th and 19th March; Creative@ADFEST will push the boundaries of the creative & communications industry and runs on 20th and 21st March.


The festival is now looking for Program Proposals for both Craft@ADFEST and Creative@ADFEST. Your proposals may also be inspired by the theme for ADFEST 2020, ‘Fired Up!’ – it’s about that fire in your belly that urges you to say your piece, question the status quo and change the world for the better.


“We’re looking for transformative creative ideas, game-changing trends, fresh ways of thinking and predictions that will help creative professionals in the Asia Pacific and Middle East navigate the future,” explains Jimmy Lam, President of ADFEST, Asia’s most celebrated regional creative festival.


Kem Suraphongchai, Festival Director at ADFEST, adds: “Please don’t send sales pitches: our most popular sessions look beyond advertising to examine the impact of creative thinking more broadly. Think innovative, inspirational, and relevant content that will educate and inspire a discerning creative audience.”


Choose between a Speaker Session or Workshop format: Speaker sessions run for 35-minutes and take place in the main conference hall, with a capacity of 1,000 people. Workshops are more intimate and interactive, and can run up to three hours in length.


Successful submissions will be notified by the end of January 2020 at the latest. All speakers receive complimentary 4-day festival passes but must cover their own travel and accommodation costs.


Please make sure you read through the Program Proposal Guide before submitting your proposal/s online here.
