The organisers of Spikes Asia have today announced that the 2011 Festival will take place 18-20 September and will return to the Suntec, Singapore, with the Awards Ceremony taking place at the Esplanade Theatre.
A hugely successful 2010 Festival saw 3058 entries judged across 10 categories â TV/Cinema, Print, Outdoor, Radio, Design, Digital, Direct & Sales Promotion, Media, Craft and Integrated, with close to 1500 delegates attending a busy two-day programme of seminars and workshops led by high profile speakers from around the world. Other highlights from the event included exhibitions and screenings, Young Spikes Integrated and Media Competitions and the Spikes Academy which offered students a dedicated learning experience. With networking playing an important part of the Festival, the delegate programme also continued into the evenings with Networking Cocktails, Networking After Dark and the much anticipated Spikes Asia Awards Ceremony and After Party. Building on this, Spikes Asia 2011 is set to be even bigger and without doubt the must-attend event for the Asia-Pacific creative industry.
âLast year proved that Spikes Asia is a genuinely inspiring Festival. Both as an awards and as an educational gathering of creative minds, it is unrivalled in its region. In 2011, we aim to make the Festival even better and we are pleased that we can continue to use Singapore as the base to do this from,â commented Philip Thomas, CEO of Cannes Lions who with Haymarket Asia organise the event.
