5000 brands, 82 categories, 14 countries. This year’s Top 1000 Brands report is back. Who took the top spots and who fell behind? As Asia Pacific’s definitive ranking on brand perception, the Top 1000 Brands report and regional events bring together the most notable brands to showcase how they are the best at what they do.

  • When:

Top 1000 Brands is a celebration of the brands that are most responsive, agile and attentive to the regions’ many social, linguistic and cultural nuances. As a result, these are the brands that resonate most strongly with the regions’ consumers.
Presented by Campaign Asia-Pacific and Nielsen, this year’s Top 1000 Brands report and regional event return to Singapore with our annual Top 1000 Brands Breakfast Briefing on 6 September. 
The event, an interactive breakfast briefing, attracts the region’s most noteworthy brands to display how they have effectively created such strong positive impressions on their consumers, and leveraged this sentiment to make them among the most competitive brands in the world.
This year, we focus on how brands are becoming culture in the experience-first era. Proactive brands will adapt to cultural nuances well and really listen to their socially-conscious customers. Internally, they will be inclusive and champion diversity. What happens inside, ripples externally and there's nowhere for brands to hide in 2019. Those winning, are those who align internal company culture with external brand values; whose purpose is purposeful and whose customer experience strategy becomes core.
Following the briefing, The Agency | Marketer | Partnership Awards ceremony will honour standout client-agency relationships that have delivered sustainable ROI and outstanding work.
Join us for an unparalleled time of learning and celebration with the best performing brands across Asia. We’ll look at the latest innovations that enable deeper, more meaningful marketing, the rise of brand activism, how the top brands assess loyalty and what the industry leaders do to ensure brand safety online.
