Also on moderating duty on the main stages will be the Mumbrella Asia general manager Dean Carroll.

He said: “We’ve got some amazing sessions and speakers lined up for delegates at 360, but we’ve also got some first-class moderators too. I’m really looking forward to seeing the different styles of those chairing the debates on stage.”

It is the second time the conference will be held. Back in 2017, the first event saw more than 1,100 delegates attend 70 sessions. Some of the industry’s most prominent speakers from across Asia and the rest of the world will feature on the programme. The format also includes one-to-one networking, a large exhibition zone, Speaker’s Corner and masterclass workshops as well as the four main content stages.

The annual Mumbrella Asia Awards ceremony will also take place during the same week as Mumbrella360 Asia – November 5 to 7 – meaning that those coming from outside Singapore only need to make one trip to attend both events at the Marina Bay Sands convention centre.

“This year, Mumbrella360 Asia is going to be even bigger and better than 2017,” Carroll said previously. “Without a doubt, this is again going to be the region’s, if not the world’s best media and marketing conference this year.”
