Campaign Asia-Pacific is unveiling the 100 A-Listers with an exclusive cocktail reception to honour their achievements tonight in Shanghai, following today's Digital360China conference. (Please stay tuned for photos and coverage tomorrow.)
The 100 individuals who make it to the Digital A-List have been selected by Campaign’s editorial panel following a round of nominations from their peers and colleagues in the field. The response has been tremendous, with a significant increase in the number and quality of nominations over previous years—whittling down the selections to just 100 A-Listers has been no mean feat.
This year’s list honours talent in seven key areas of expertise which are driving growth and development in the industry today: data analytics; digital content; ecommerce; hardware innovation; retail technology; programmatic; and social media.
The varying ‘demand’ for some of these fields said much about the state of the industry today: almost half of all nominations were for people working in digital content; only a few were bold enough to claim to be hardware innovation or retail tech specialists—but those who did were of exceptional calibre.
