5th December

Room 1

(Organized by : International Live Events Association (ILEA))

The live events industry is one which is in a constant state of flux as needs and wants change, and as technology progresses. Coupled with that is the need to always use live events as a channel of communication - to communicate a core message, a favorable impression, to touch people’s emotions. In a world where people are constantly bombarded with information, what event organizers need are new tools which may be more effective in reaching out to communicate to event participants.

Creating New Wow Moments is a forum organized to equip you with these tools. From the clever use of interior design, to employing the latest technologies, right down to the how-tos of hiring talented freelancers locally and globally, you will come away with new ideas on how to make your live event a stand-out one.
