MUMBAI:  The Indian delegate will be represented by RK Swamy BBDO and president India Chapter of the International Advertising Association (IAA) Srinivsan K Swamy in the bi-annual advertising conference that maps the ascent of Asia’s vibrant market.

Reacting to the news Swamy said, “It is a privilege to represent the country at such a prestigious international event.” He added that India had a very special place in the recent history of the AdAsia movement having hosted two of the best events in India in 2003 and 2011. He said that Adsia 2013 would be very interesting and informative.

Asian Federation of Advertising Associations (AFAA) chairman Pradeep Guha welcomed the announcement and said, “This year AdAsia is being held in Hanoi between 11 and 14 November. There is great interest in this event as there is a galaxy of very good confirmed speakers and Vietnam is an emerging economic leader. Besides, the region is known for its natural beauty and the UNESCO World Heritage Site Ha Long Bay.”

The festival continues to expand over the course of its illustrious history spanning more than 55 years attracting 1200 advertising professionals from member countries, as well as the leaders of many of the most influential advertising and marketing communications enterprises in the world.

This year, the festival will see a melange of all new things. There is special impetus on uncovering what will be the next agency business model, considering a lot of business structures are now creaking.  Also equally thrilling will be the understanding of how fast mobile advertising is penetrating the east of Asia, heralding the digital age at a faster than expected pace.
