PATTAYA, THAILAND: Adfest is now calling for programme proposals from industry leaders who are interested in sharing their knowledge of “inspiring creativity, trends, and breakthroughs” at Adfest 2020, which runs from 18-20 March in Pattaya.

Proposals must be submitted by Saturday 30 November (scroll down for the link).

The theme for Adfest 2020is Fired Up! Festival president Jimmy Lam said: “It’s about that fire in your belly that urges you to say your piece and make a difference, empowered by your passion for creativity.

“All of that creative energy is coming together in 2020 where creative leaders will present speaker sessions and workshops about questioning the status quo and changing the world for the better.

“The programme is divided into two streams: Craft@Adfest shines a spotlight on production, digital, content and technology trends and runs 18-19 March; Creative@Adfest will push the boundaries of the creative & communications industry and runs on 20-21 March.

“Don’t send sales pitches; our most popular sessions look beyond advertising to the impact of creative thinking more broadly.”

“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.”

“Please don’t send sales pitches; our most popular sessions look beyond advertising to examine the impact of creative thinking more broadly. We’re looking for new, innovative, inspirational, and relevant content that will educate and inspire a 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 1000 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. All speakers receive complimentary four-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,” Lam said.
