Asia Anime Conference 2009

We at JUICE love being creative. It’s what we really do best (besides attending cool parties and downing shots in one gulp). The Animation Asia Conference aims to reunite all the creative people, as it is an inaugural regional conference that seeks to provide the media and animation industry a platform for business exchange. Here’s your chance to get up close and personal with some of Asia’s best in the industry and as they share their expertise and insights on what’s hot and what’s not.

Anime News Network, Asia Image, Content Asia and Kidscreen have all jumped on board as media partners for this conference. Set to take place on 20th November 2009 at the Suntec Singapore International Exhibition and Convention Centre, here’s your chance to gain inspiration if you’ve been feeling lethargic at work and find out how being passionate about your work can produce more moolah. Who says being creative doesn’t pay? Boo to those money-machine doctors and lawyers.

Titled “Globalisation of Asia’s Soft Power”, this conference will cover three themes- Create, Manage and Engage. The lineup of the top speakers include Tsuguhiko Kadokawa (CEO of Kadokawa Group Holdings), Mamoru Hosada (Director of anime blockbuster Summer Wars & The Girl Who Leapt Through Time), Kotaro Sugiyama ( Senior Vice President, Dentsu Inc) Shiro Sasaki (CEO of Flying Dog Inc) and many more prominent speakers.

Tickets are priced at SGD$480 but the kind folks at Dentsu Malaysia are running a special promotion at SGD300 only per pax for normal delegates and SG180.00 for students (limited to 100 only), so hurry up!
