PPA Awards 2021 Innovation of the Year

The PPA Awards seem to have come around very quickly again, as it really doesn’t seem to be that long since we last participated.


This time around we are sponsoring the highly Affino-relevant PPA Innovation of the Year Award. Affino has always been all about Innovation - and our very own keynote event is of course the annual Affino Innovation Briefing. So it makes perfect sense for us to be involved in this category at the forthcoming PPA awards - due to take place virtually / ...

And even dramatically with Apple’s new option to opt out of 3rd party tracking in all its apps in iOS 14.5 - with around 95% of users having opted out.


We know from our own fully incorporated Affino native site tracking and ...

May The Fourth Be With You! Looking forward to a Year or two in Star Wars Audiovisual Entertainment

For a change I will be skipping the usual Star Wars Merch - Lego, Figurines and the like. Instead I am focusing on the wealth of forthcoming Disney / Lucasfilm / Disney+ content - where no less than 15 New Franchises have been announced, as well as the continuation of the well-loved Mandalorian Series. It will be interesting to see how that pans out with the essential side-kick Groku displaced from the main narrative.


In any case there are some fantastic new TV series and Films ...

Unlock Net Zero

Fairly recent 2019 legislation has bound the UK to achieving Net Zero Carbon Emissions by 2050 - as applied specifically on this occasion to the nature of domestic housing and buildings.
