A+M launches Spin & Spiel

Advertising + Marketing has launched its inaugural conference called A+M Spin & Spiel.

The two-day conference will see around 100 client-side marketers and agency professionals learn, discuss, debate and define the shape of the advertising and marketing industry in Malaysia next year.

The conference was designed as an end-of-the year get-together event where traditional conference programming and formatting is replaced with bleeding edge presentations and intense town hall debates.

A+M Spin & Spiel has gathered a stellar group of diverse speakers to share their expertise and shed knowledge on the finer arts of the brave new world of marketing today.

Mac Ambrose, head of events, A+M, said the conference is a platform for client-side marketers and agencies to get together while planning for 2014 by learning what works and what is being over-hyped.

"As technology becomes dominant in this industry, do we have the right capabilities to properly utilise it? Most importantly, what is advertising and marketing today? This event will provide a solid point of reference from where they can make proper decisions and not blindly jump on the bandwagon," added Ambrose.

The first round of first-in-class speakers and panelists includes:

Paul Roebuck CEO Singapore and Malaysia Saatchi & Saatchi

Robert Zepeda Founder/CEO Playbasis

Henry Stokes Director Client Development (APAC) Xaxis

Arshan Saha Director SEA Xaxis

Ho Kay Tat Group CEO and Publisher The Edge

James Hurman Author of The Case for Creativity and CEO Young & Rubicam NZ

Dean Dacko SVP Marketing Malaysia Airlines

Chow Wei Heng VP Marketing Genting

Roderick Strother Director Digital and Social Centre of Excellence Lenovo

A+M Spin & Spiel will take place on 27-28 November in Kuala Lumpur.
