AD STARS 2019: Cheil Worldwide Hong Kong Wins 23 Awards, Named “Agency of the Year” at This Year’s AD STARS

BUSAN, SOUTH KOREA–It’s been a week since AD STARS 2019 concluded, but our team here at the adobo Creative Hub are still on a high with what occurred, and we’re sure it’s the case as well for those who won awards.

Claiming to be the “only international advertising festival which combines creativity with cutting-edge technology”, AD STARS has continuously made a significant impact to the advertising industry at large, with it being one of the most prestigious award-giving body in the world.

On top of this, the show invites some of the most respected and celebrated individuals in the creative community to assess countless agencies and campaigns for each award, as well as determine which agency would get the top merits such as Agency of the Year and Network of the Year.
