ADFEST has announced that the World Producers Summit is returning to Thailand on Thursday, March 23 at 13.00-15.30 as part of ADFEST 2023. This exclusive summit is an opportunity for Executive Producers in the Asia Pacific and Middle East to get together to discuss the trends and challenges facing their businesses.
The World Producers Summit at ADFEST 2023 will be chaired by Steve Davies, chief executive of the Advertising Producers Association (APA) and executive vice president of the Commercial Film Producers of Europe (CFPE) together with Francois Chilot, honorary chairman of CFPE and President of the Young Director Award.
The purpose of the World Producers Summit is to bring the region’s top producers together to gain valuable insights, brainstorm possible solutions to common issues and explore new ways of working. This is a chance to get ahead with your knowledge. Is there something happening to the production business in the US? China? Brazil? Or Australia? That will come to affect your market. How can you be ready for the opportunities that might bring?
The first World Producers Summit at ADFEST was held in 2012 as a forum for production company owners and stakeholders in the Asia Pacific and Middle East to discuss specific issues they encounter as the industry evolves and globalizes and examine solutions to current and emerging business challenges. The World Producers Summit also takes place in Cannes every June and is created by the Association of Independent Commercial Producers, CFPE and APA.
Says Corey Esse, managing director and executive producer at FINCH in Australia, who attend the last Summit: “It is not often you get EPs and producers from all around Asia in one room. It was good to discuss the issues each market faces and share insights on how one another are dealing with it. It was also great to make some more contacts from other countries as we look to production solutions outside of our markets.”
The World Producers Summit at ADFEST 2023 is open to just 40 producers from production companies and agencies, with only one representative per company permitted. It’s free to attend, but you must be a registered delegate of ADFEST 2023.
