The annual event was earlier scheduled to be held from April 7th to 9th. Goafest is returning after a hiatus of two years.
Goafest Organizing Committee has announced the change in dates for Goafest 2022, postponing it from April 7th – 9th to the 5th– 7th May 2022. This change will also facilitate extra time for the ‘One Show’ which has collaborated with the Abbys.
With Omicron cases on the decline, the committee believes that agencies and organizations will be more enthusiastic to participate in the festival after a gap of two years.

On the rescheduling of dates, Goafest Chairman, Jaideep Gandhi said “Ad Club joining hands with ‘One Show’ will truly take the Abbys to the world. However, keeping in mind the ongoing pandemic situation, we believe the celebration of this unique, game-changing partnership would be better experienced with the 15th edition of Goafest scheduled in May 2022.”
Speaking on the tie-up, Anupriya Acharya, President, Advertising Agencies Association of India said “I would like to congratulate Ad Club for the tie-up with ‘One Show’. The One Show is one of the most reputed advertising shows globally and further adds to the significance and the excitement around the festival that is returning after two long, eventful years. And similarly, the 2022 edition of Goafest provides a perfect platform for the redefined Abbys. There is much for everyone to come together and share at the festival.”
Goafest is the definitive annual festival for the advertising, marketing, and media industry – it attracts over 2000 people from across India. At the heart of this unique festival is an eclectic platter of knowledge, recognition, networking, and celebration.
