Creativity, Marketing

Slovenian Advertising Chamber made known the fact that the main theme of the 18th Golden Drum International Advertising Festival of New Europe is “New Europe, New Thinking”.

The Festival will be held from October 5th to 8th 2011 in Portorož, Slovenia.

In a time when creative industry had to face market changes and acknowledge new facts in their professional environment, Golden Drum Festival passed through phases of “Brainstorming” and “Reconstruction” (key themes of 2009 and 2010) and now enters a new phase, returning to its roots – New Europe, New Thinking

“New Europe, New Thinking” is more than just the main theme of the 18th International Advertising Festival of New Europe Golden Drum, it is a long term challenge given to agencies, advertisers, media houses and others engaged in the creative industry of New Europe to step up and face an ever faster evolving market and an extremely demanding new kind of consumer.

But apart from all these novelties, Barbara Krajnc, Executive Director of the 18th Golden Drum Festival, and Jure Apih, Honorary President of Golden Drum Festival join in their promise, that this year participants will experience the best of the Festival’s long-term commitment to “sharp competition, good school, crazy party and devilish challenge”.
