About the theme of AdAsia 2011 – Uncertainty is the new certainty – Kamath said, “When we first pitched this theme two years ago, we didn’t know that this theme would become more apt when we hit the D-day. The theme is a statement of what people in advertising, marketing, media etc. are operating in today.” “To take the theme to another level, the delegates at the inaugural ceremony would be asked to dress in their national attire,” informed Kamath. At the same time, every lunch and dinner session during the three-day event will witness the dining venue being recreated to
imitate Delhi’s streets, Kerala’s culture and India’s royal durbar. To promote the event, organizers are also using social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. They have announced contest on Facebook and Twitter to engage management students of the country.  On
Facebook, the students will have to uplink a 10-slide presentation on the theme of AdAsia 2011. “On Twitter, people will have to talk about the theme in 140 characters. The entries will be judged by the 10-member advisory board of AdAsia 2011, and the winners would be given relevant discount in the registration fee of AdAsia 2011,” explained Bagga.

The early-bird registration for the event closes on 30 September, and the participants will be accepted on a first-come-first-serve basis as the organizers can accept only 1200 delegates. The details of registration are available on AdAsia 2011’s website
