Video kicks off 40-years celebration

ASIA-PACIFIC - Campaign Asia-Pacific is kicking off a celebration of 40 years covering the industry in Asia, from our origins as Media magazine in 1973 through to today.

wide player in 16:9 format. Used on article page for Campaign.

We invite you to join us over the coming months by checking out:

  • The interactive industry timeline we're building at The 1970s portion of the timeline is available now, and the subsequent decades (with far more detail than the somewhat murky mid-1970s) will appear over the coming weeks. As the timeline grows, you'll be able to explore the evolution of the industry in Asia through headlines, brand and agency milestones and specific campaigns. 
  • Retrospective and forward-looking features at and in the special October edition of Campaign Asia-Pacific, which is entirely dedicated to the 40-year celebration. Already at the 40th website, you can check out our industry Hall of Fame, and we'll soon begin posting a series of personal recollections by some major industry figures.

Looking further ahead, we'll provide an opportunity that will make any time you spend perusing the industry timeline worth your while. We're excited about this exploration of where the industry came from and where it's going. We hope you are too, and we welcome your feedback.
