Covid Safety Plans for AWAPAC 2022

We’re looking forward to returning to Luna Park in Sydney this August to host our first hybrid edition of Advertising Week APAC. 

Delegates will be able to experience the entire thought leadership programme and numerous special events and activations in person throughout the week. Those joining virtually can watch the thought leadership programme live as it happens. All delegates — digital or in-person — will be able to access all content from the week on-demand up to 30 days after the event from their own home or office. 

We have fully trained covid compliance officers on our team who will ensure that we monitor the situation constantly and — as we have in New York, London and Tokyo — adhere to all health guidelines in place at the time of the event. Please check for up-to-date protocol and guidance in the lead-up to the event.
