The USP of the APPIES LIVE 4-6-10 campaign presentation format continues to be a big draw for participants and audience members. Each presentation begins with a 4-minute showreel video summarising the campaign, followed by a live 6-minute exposition of the campaign’s key highlights by the brand’s marketers/campaign creators. Then comes the interactive 10-minute session where each campaign is cross-examined by the judges and audience.
“Record numbers aside, we are more delighted to have some sterling brands and marketers on board as presenters and judges. You can look forward to two very inspiring days indeed.” – Ms Goh Shu Fen, Chairperson of the APPIES and Co-Founder & Principal of R3.
