It's also available without charge online at We've had fantastic feedback on the usefulness of past editions from marketers, advertisers, media buyers and people throughout the digital industry. Just about every marketing director, agency executive or business executive has to develop digital strategies or give a presentation on what's happening online in the Asia Pacific region. That's where the ADMA Yearbook comes in. We've gathered a wealth of the most relevant information and insight available, some of which cannot readily be found anywhere else, along with case studies that showcase some of the most innovative and effective digital work being done now. The Yearbook covers demographics, user behaviour, online advertising, mobile, online gaming, e-commerce, and much more. Many thanks are due to all the companies that contributed data, to our editor Rachel Oliver, and to ADMA Director Kay Bayliss. 2009: Connections Triumph Over Interruption I n the past year, the development of digital marketing that most marketers and advertisers still predominantly took some exciting new turns, reaching not only use websites, online ads and email.
