Gold, Silver and Bronze Event Marketing Award winners were determined by the scores of 19 director-level executive judges who considered 150 nominations from agencies and brands across the Asia Pacific region.  A total of 48 awards (17 gold) were granted in 20 categories.  The winners were celebrated at the ceremony on June 6, 2018 at the Eaton Club in Hong Kong.

“Having submitted in 3 categories we are extremely happy to have received 3 times gold which shows that our efforts around the event were worth it, with Interplan prevailing above severe competition from all the top international agencies.” remarked Robert Campbell, Interplan Executive Vice President.  “It also goes to show that the feeling of pride everybody in Taiwan had on that opening night were correct: it was truly a world class event!”
