ADFEST’s tribute to Jimmy Lam

ADFEST’s tribute to Jimmy Lam

The industry has been saddened by the passing of Jimmy Lam, President of ADFEST. His vision and foresight were integral in establishing this Asian festival of creativity. ADFEST has prepared this dedication to Jimmy.


Jimmy’s enthusiasm, perseverance and skill brought us forward year after year and he will be missed, not only by ADFEST but by the creative community throughout Asia.

Jimmy was a pillar of strength and worked tirelessly to make ADFEST a reality; he was the ground force that shaped it into the success it is today and the advertising industry in Asia Pacific is richer for his effort.

Jimmy left ADFEST in the good hands of a dedicated team. The preparation for the Virtual Award Show for 2022 is well underway and his clear strategy and ideas are already being implemented. The team will continue to build and evolve his vision and legacy to recognise, support and celebrate Asian creativity.

ADFEST wants to thank the whole industry for their condolences and concern and would like to assure you that Jimmy will be remembered with much fondness and will always be with us in spirit.

To honour Jimmy’s absolute commitment to ADFEST, watch their tribute to his inventiveness, determination, energy and camaraderie over the twenty years he spent with ADFEST.

ADFEST 2022 Lotus Awards Virtual Ceremony will be held on Thursday 7th April 2022 at 12 pm. (UTC+7).
