Ad industry bigwigs come together for CreativeFest

More than 600 advertisers, creatives from various agencies and students of allied studies came in full force to celebrate the power of innovation, ideas and creativity at CreativeFest 2019 last month.


The event, spearheaded by the Association of Accredited Advertising Agencies of the Philippines (4As) and the Creative Guild of the Philippines, brought together some of the biggest names in the field of advertising to discuss the most pressing topics in the industry today with the goal to inspire practitioners and prove to the world that creativity rules.

“It is important that the leading creative agencies take the responsibility to demonstrate how best advertising can be done. We do that by bringing together people who understand behavior, people who can listen to and advise brand owners, and people who can create ideas and bring it all to life,” 4As chair and BBDO Guerrero CEO David Guerrero said during his welcome address.


In one of the most powerful moments of the CreativeFest, ad industry icon and former Tourism Secretary Ramon Jimenez Jr. delivered a stirring speech about creative purpose. “Where do you draw the line between fact and fiction? Creativity and exaggeration? There is a great temptation to go on cheat mode when there is a financial implication,” Jimenez said in his speech. “The truth does not sell itself; you must sell it to the people.”

Creative Guild of the Philippines President and Dentsu Jayme Syfu Chair Merlee Jayme concluded the event.

“I believe that we successfully accomplished what we sought to do with the CreativeFest; we inspired people and made them think, and after everything that’s all we can ask for.”
