NOVEMBER 1-4, 2017


Three Days of Relevancy

We all understand that three days out of the office is a significant amount of time. However, spending three days at the Asia Digital Leadership Summit will help you get inspired as you plan for 2018. Key are the three areas we like to call the 3i’s.


  • Understanding and acknowledging the incredible insights and experience the 220 delegates will be able to share over the three days will be invaluable.
  • These will come in many formats, from Presentations, Roundtable Discussion groups, the Think-Tanks, discussions over lunch and even that late night insight at the bar.
  • You will be able to immerse yourself with new insights that could dramatically change your business


  • With 220 amazing minds, you can only expect some extremely valuable ideas and also some crazy ideas, but sometimes the crazy ideas are the best.
  • From the get go you will be with your peers, old colleagues, long lost associates and embarking on building your network across the region. There is nowhere else you will have such a concentration group of like-minded individuals.


  • We are all very busy these days and we never really have the time to sit back and look at what’s happening in the market place. The Digital Space is never asleep and many opportunities get missed.
  • We bring to you some of the new innovations during the Summit. Some of these will be from well-known global suppliers that are continually developing and mastering their craft as well as new businesses that need your airtime. Both equally could significantly change your future thinking and develop brand new strategies that could have a dramatic effect on your business.
key reasons you must attend

  • Inspire others and be inspired
  • 220 brightest minds in the industry (including you) will attend
  • Embrace the future

Digital Agency Summit 2016 Digital Agency Summit 2016 - Phuket, Thailand.

Exceeded my expectations, a well balanced event with the right mix of peers, keynotes and solution providers. Keynote topics were well-thought out, covering a broad and detailed mix of topics, set at the right level to keep c-suite/director level marketers engaged throughout the week. We also managed to compare providers at the event that we were looking into and found the right tech partner to fulfill some of our own marketing needs. The ability to network with the right people from within the industry at this level was what I found really set the event apart. Over the years I've cut back on 80% of events I attend as I feel they don't go into enough detail, cover the latest industry movements and don't attract the right mix or level of marketers, however I feel this is one event I will keep in the diary as it hit the sweet spot for a marketing summit.

There are summits. And then, there are summits. Paul's (SVP - Mackbrooks Summits) efforts to make his event one of value, one that has the right content and context are simply brilliant. He researches the demands of the industry thoroughly, he curates the content and the speakers, he is in touch with the key opinion leaders that shape our industry, and he has his pulse on what matters & what is relevant and trending. Because of that, I always gain tremendous insight in Paul's conferences, and I always expand my knowledge. After each conference of his, I feel empowered and I always receive much more than I contribute. That is a plus! I am looking forward to the future ones.

I was thoroughly and pleasantly surprised by the thought provoking presentations and conversations I experienced at the Digital Summits. As an organizational psychologist, I was unsure how my presentation on change management, corporate culture and organizational transformation would be received by digital advertising and marketing professionals. It turned out to be one of many presentations that catalyzed some of the best intellectual sparing I’ve done in a long time. We debated topics like the convergence of industries, updating business models, organizational design and the emotionality of our professional lives. Essentially it was an intense 3-day think-tank on the beach!
