ABOUT ADFEST is Asia’s most celebrated regional creative festival.
Founded in 1998, ADFEST is the ideal place for the creative industry to gather, network, exchange ideas, and meet new friends.
ADFEST is 1 of only 8 regional creative festivals included in the WARC Creative Rankings, successor to The Gunn Report. The WARC Rankings combine the winners’ lists from the world’s most important awards to establish the annual worldwide league tables for the global advertising industry.
ADFEST is the annual creative festival not to be missed to stay at the forefront of the rapidly changing creative, marketing and production industries.
ADFEST not only raises the standard of creative excellence in the region, it also celebrates the uniqueness of local culture. It is a learning hub for those in the communication industry through showcasing of the region’s best creative works and inspiring content from experts in various disciplines. It is also the perfect place to relax, learn, and meet new friends in the industry.
Due to the continuing disruption from the Covid-19 pandemic, ADFEST has with regret made the decision not to hold its annual four-day festival that was previously scheduled to take place in Pattaya, Thailand from 17-20 March 2021.
ADFEST will be organising separate virtual awards ceremonies for both its 2020 & 2021 Lotus Awards. The exact dates of the Awards ceremonies will be announced in the very near future.
