SINGAPORE — The Holmes Report's 2019 Asia-Pacific IN2 Innovation Summit and SABRE Awards will return to Singapore on 12 September, exploring the innovation and disruption that continue to redefine influence and engagement.

The sixth edition of IN2Summit Asia-Pacific will feature the IN2 SABRE Awards at lunchtime and will precede the ninth SABRE Awards Asia-Pacific that evening. All events are taking place at the Mandarin Oriental in Singapore.

Confirmed event partners already include Weber Shandwick, BCW, Archetype, H+K Strategies, Ruder Finn, SPRG, WE, FleishmanHillard, W, Rice Communications, Ogilvy and Redhill Communications. In addition, the conference will build on the recent merger with APACD's Asia-Pacific Communications Summit, and also carries ICCO and PRCA Southeast Asia as additional supporting organisations. 

Since launching in 2014, the IN2Summit Asia-Pacific has featured names such as Lenovo CMO Arthur Wei, J&J global analytics head Jyoti Jain, P&G's Nancy Liu, Microsoft’s Andrew Pickup, HSBC's Suresh Balaji, Emirates' Valerie Tan, McDonald’s Jessica Lee and Temasek’s Stephen Forshaw, along with senior comms and social media executives from Nissan, Nike, Ikea, Li & Fung, Fonterra, AIA and Tata.

Programme details for the 2019 conference will be available soon, focusing on the innovation that is redefining the marketing and communications worlds, along with the significant challenges (such as post-truth, fake news and corporate values) that it must address as corporate activism takes centre stage.

Tickets for the conference, and for the SABRE Awards in the evening, are now available at discounted early bird prices until 11 August. SABRE finalists are due to be revealed on 12 August, with Agency of the Year finalists published on 19 August.
