AdAsia returns to India after eight years. In 2003, the AdAsia congress was hosted in Jaipur and was widely regarded as a landmark in the history of the Congress. AdAsia 2011 will not just be about Ads and Asia. It has a far more ambitious vision and seeks to comprehensively explore all aspects of the theme Uncertainty: The New Certainty.
The business world is currently at an inflection point witnessing a realignment of global economic leadership. In the 19th Century, the world looked to the West for innovation and progress. In the 21st. century, everyone’s attention is riveted on Asia. AdAsia 2011 will thus provide a ready platform to chronicle change of a significant magnitude and provide a glimpse of the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead. The prolific agenda of AdAsia 2011 will comprise over 15 intellectually stimulating sessions aimed at exploring the business ecosystem and understanding the nature of disruption to effectively address pertinent concerns.
