All delegates will be invited to the networking drinks event at the close of the opening day programme on Sunday September 18. The event — catered with thirsty creatives in mind — runs from 5.30 pm until 7pm and aims to get delegates in to the "festival-mode" for the next two days of speakers, workshops, judging and awards.
The event will take place in the main foyer area of the festival, at the Suntec Singapore International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
It follows a strong lineup of speakers for the opening day. The festival opens at 2pm with a high-level panel discussion, moderated by Frederique Covington, chief marketing officer for Microsoft Asia-Pacific, on the topic: Is tomorrow's agency the consumer?
Other first-day highlights include an insiders' guide to Cannes, presented by Warren Brown, creative founder, of BMF, a panel discussion on the future of television, and Cheil Worldwide's Alex Kwon on the unique factors and challenges facing creative industries in the Korean market.
