This session will be the first time the Global Chief Product Officer will speak at a forum of this magnitude.
Along with the launch of the official 2017 calendar, Advertising Week Asia introduces the official tracks for The Week. To better organize the 50+ programming events and help focus the week, the official “tracks” allow AWAsia Asia pass-holders to narrow in on specific topics to better tailor their experience to what’s relevant to their industry backgrounds, interests and specialties.
Finally, in addition to daytime programming and events, AWAsia Super Delegate pass-holders are invited to attend special events in the evenings. On Monday, the Opening Gala will kick off the event in the Roppongi Hills Arena, sponsored by TV Asahi. Then, to conclude the event, attendees are invited to attend the official Wrap Party held at Akasaka BLITZ on Thursday.
