Goa Fest Information
Goafest 2014: A South Asian advertising festival for those who believe in the power of Advertising. It is a ‘must-attend’ event for people involved in Marketing, Advertising, Media and allied Services. Every year about 3000 professionals get together to not just reconnect and strengthen their friendship, but also to enjoy and learn from the various seminars, learn from their contemporaries and celebrate advertising.
Goafest 2014 is scheduled to be held on 29th, 30th and 31st May 2014 at Grand Hyatt Goa. This year, the festival theme is ‘Brand Baaja Baaraat’. A theme that indicates that everyone will celebrate and have fun!
The focus for 2014 will be to strengthen the excellent initiatives that were launched in the previous years. In 2012, Goafest was opened to all nations in South Asia and also invited strong client participation through the Marketing Wizards initiative. This year, we intend to further expand and grow these initiatives – apart from, adding more Categories to make Goafest a true platform for everyone connected with Advertising, Media and Marketing.
For the 7th consecutive year, AAAI and The Advertising Club come together to deliver India’s premier awards that celebrate creativity at Goafest. The organizers now have an extremely robust process in place for the awards. While taking on board learnings and improvements from the past editions, they will continue to follow judicious and strict norms for the Abbys in 2014.
