The future of media in Asia

All that and lunch too. What more could you ask for?

My good friend Thomas Crampton has organised a lunch on 4th June at which some of the gurus of the industries will gaze into their freshly-polished crystal balls. Tom says those participating will include:

  • Torie Henderson – Hong Kong-based Managing Director of OMD International, who will speak about Asia’s latest advertising trends, developments and innovations.
  • Hiroko Hoshino – Tokyo-based Regional Online Director & FT Corporate Representative in Japan, who oversees FT.com advertising sales and online business across Asia.
  • Felix Soh – Singapore-based Director of the Straits Times’ RazorTV will give the first public demonstration of paper’s soon-to-be-launched live interactive Internet TV.

I think I'm going to be in Beijing and so not able to attend. Boooo!

The event is co-sponsored by The Society of Publishers in Asia, the Asia Digital Marketing Association and the Foreign Correspondents Club of Hong Kong. It's timed to coincide with SOPA's annual awards for editorial excellence dinner.

I expect to see all of those of you who attend both the lunch and dinner in the FCC gym the next morning!

Thanks for helping put out the word, Paul. I'm counting on making the audience as interesting as the panelists, so please encourage high powered people to attend! Tom

Tom - thanks for that. I'm sure you'll get a good crowd.

Anonymous - why don't you come back and tell us again when there's something there. A blank page with a comment about Asia's population is hardly going to put you at the top table with Alibaba and Global Sources is it.
