The ANDYs Judging has always been an intimate experience for global creative leaders on the Jury, staff, AD Club Board Members and Partners. We strive to create a unique environment that fosters thoughtful discussion and ensures full immersion into the work entered into the show.
It is well known that the Jury has a long week ahead of them since they are an integrated group reviewing all of the work; it can be a painstaking process at times. The ANDYs are the first to announce their winners and serve as a predictor for awards season and we take this very seriously, so, when we take a break from the judging room, the host city is awaiting and a welcomed reprieve from intense concentration.
We take great care in selecting our host city and Bangkok is an embarrassment of riches.
Rich culture to inspire the judges ✔️
Vibrant advertising community ✔️
What I didn’t count on was the warmth of the Thai people. While on the site inspection in preparation for February’s judging, I was delighted by the enthusiasm and unique spirit at each place I visited. There is no shortage of custom, cuisine, and art for our group to explore. As an event planner I can’t wait to see how the week unfolds. I’m most excited to continue to connect with the creative community in Bangkok and share access to our Jury with them.
If you are interested in helping us entertain in Bangkok February 26 – March 4, please contact me.
I hope to see your work in the judging room, reminder our extended deadline is January 25th.
