Perspectives: Festival of Media Asia Singapore 2014

Festival of media Asia 2014 (Singapore)
The Festival of media, in recent years, has been among my favorite media related conferences/gatherings.
It does help to understand what is currently happening in the media/advertising sector, but more importantly, where is it all heading. You get to meet people of course, and that is always exciting. I am not too much of an extrovert, but do like meeting people and sharing stuff.
So I have been visiting this festival since the past 2 years (and have been blogging about experiences)- and this year was no …

I haven’t attended many events lately.
But when friends @Rice Communications invited me to a community gathering around the launch of a book titled “Talented South East Asia”- on talent management in SEA, I had to give in. A little time spent in the company of industry achievers and think-tank never goes unrewarded.
While Asia as a whole is well celebrated in terms of high quality talent, specific pockets within Asia are quite happening, if you look with the right lens. This publication seems to provide that lens with a focus on …

Infographic- PayTV trends in APAC

APAC is not only the most populous region in the world, it is also the region with dominant internet population and television penetration.
It might perhaps even be the most diverse region when it comes to advertising mediums. Right from camel backs to auto rickshaws to an increasingly sophisticated digital TV market, this region is an awesome playground for both media consumers and marketers alike.
Festival of Media Asia 2014, a solid event that brings together media stakeholders from all around the world, has recently tried to highlight a media trend …

Festival of Media Asia Pacific 2014

Festival of Media Asia Pacific 2014
How time flies. It’s back again.
It seems last year’s event only just happened.
And it’s already back- third year in a row. The Festival of Media Asia Pacific (FOMAP), the largest gathering of media leaders in Asia Pacific is back for its third year. This year, it takes place from 16-18 March 2014 at the Capella Singapore. So the usual suspects from the media fraternity- media owners, agencies and brands are all going to be there for three days of networking, celebration and inspiring speaker …

Intelligent, action packed and full of thrills.
Just the way I want my shows to be.
And AXN Asia is bringing a show that seems to pack all of those.
The Blacklist.

The story revolves around the world’s most wanted criminal, Raymond Reddington. Reddington mysteriously turns himself in to the authorities and offers to give up everyone he has ever worked with. His only condition is that he will only work with a newly minted FBI agent with …

Facebook and Twitter have both become integral parts of many web users’ digital lives, whether they are accessed on the best ultrabook or the humble office PC, or even on smartphones and tablets.

Each however has particular strengths and weaknesses, and therefore needs to be used differently to help generate profits.
A straight numbers comparison between Facebook and Twitter has obvious flaws, the chief one being that, while …

With the best laptops now boasting HD screens and bundles of processing power, and smartphones boasting multimedia capabilities that were practically unthinkable a little over a decade ago, it’s no surprise that social media campaigns have moved well beyond the now obligatory Facebook and Twitter pages to encompass some of the most exciting and innovative advertising around. With this in mind, here, in no particular order, are some of the standouts of 2012, as well as some of the best campaigns to have emerged so far in 2013.

Can Social Networking Prevent the Spread of Illness?
Social media has a plethora of uses. New laptops (especially those using Windows 8), tablets, and mobile phones can all be used to keep tabs on friends living abroad, share photos of big moments, and forecast sickness. Forecast sickness?! Yes, the next time your son or daughter catches a cold or displays the early symptoms of influenza, instead of keeping them quarantined in the house, simply get online and see where outbreaks of the viruses are occurring and plan accordingly.

What awesome two days.
Happy (and thankful to Rice Communications and FOMA) to be a part of an event like Festival of Media, Asia. Stylish, full of great speaking sessions and good speakers- not just on the quality of speaking but the quality of content they had to talk about.
Apart from that, great questioning by presenters.
Two days- locked in the southern corner of Singapore- hijacking the W Sentosa hotels (they loved it, by the way- judging by their tweets in response to mine ) .

Full of action too: We made …
