See you at ADfel on the 18th - 24th of August, a whole week of branded entertainment

IQads presents ADfel 9th edition, the event which brings together brands which know how to make unconventional advertising and the people of Bucharest who want something different in the heat of the summer. The event takes place during the whole week between August 18th and 24th, 2014, at Fabrica Club (address: 11 Iunie Street, no. 50). Entrance is free for the public.

Those which want to relax in the open-air club at Fabrica will enjoy creative activations which make use of the location’s potential. Brands are eager to show their fun side through happenings and a creative presence either online or offline on the terrace, in the pub, in the billiards hall or in the indoor skatepark.

As in all other editions of ADfel, cultural, educational, ecological and social organizations will benefit from the first three days of the event, the Culture Days, to unconventionally present their mission and try to make the world a better place.

The smartest ad parodies entering the Grand Spoof competition will be aired and awarded on Thursday, August 21st.

Throughout the whole event, the exhibition called ADfel Galleries will show awarded case studies of unconventional advertising from around the world.
