Asian Expansion: Portfolio Night 13 Adds Three Cities

Ogilvy China, Bates CHI & Partners Return As Portfolio Night Hosts For Beijing, Shanghai, Singapore

They say three’s a crowd, but this is one trio we can get behind.

ADC is happy to announce that Tokyo will not be the only Portfolio Night 13 City Host in the Far East this year, as three cities have confirmed their participation in the world’s largest advertising portfolio review this week. Beijing and Shanghai will once again be hosted by Ogilvy China — a tradition they’ve carried on in both cities since 2012 — while Bates CHI & Partners returns to host Singapore after a phenomenal event last year.

“It’s a testament to the power of Portfolio Night when City Hosts don’t just get involved, but do so year after year,” said Sarah West, Portfolio Night Global Manager. “Ogilvy and Bates have both done incredible jobs as hosts, and we are looking forward to working with them again.”

In addition to Beijing, Shanghai and Singapore, fourteen other global cities have thus far confirmed their participation in Portfolio Night 13 on May 20, 2015:

Austin — hosted by Razorfish
Berlin — hosted by McCann
Boston — hosted by Hill Holliday
Cape Town — hosted by McCann
