The organising committee of Goafest has announced that the 2022 edition of the event has been postponed by a month and will be held between 5-7 May.
The event was originally scheduled to be held between 7-9 April.
According to a statement from the organising committee, this change will help facilitate the recent partnership between The One Show with the Abbys. The statement adds that with Covid-19 cases on the decline in the country, the delay will help with participation.
Jaideep Gandhi, chairman, Goafest, said, “Ad Club joining hands with ‘One Show’ will truly take the Abbys - India’s premier and longstanding tradition of creative excellence, to the world. However, keeping in mind the ongoing pandemic situation, we believe the celebration of this unique, game-changing partnership would be better experienced with the 15th edition of Goafest scheduled in May, 2022. After all, a celebration of creativity and innovation gets even better when the world around us is safer.”
Anupriya Acharya, president, Advertising Agencies Association of India, said, “I would like to congratulate Ad Club for the tie-up with ‘One Show’. The One Show is one of the most reputed advertising shows globally and further adds to the significance and the excitement around the festival that is returning after two long, eventful years. And similarly, the 2022 edition of Goafest provides a perfect platform for the redefined Abbys. There is much for everyone to come together and share at the festival.”
