The beginning of this month was full of excitement for the PRecious team as we got to see several of our clients and our Managing Director, Lars Voedisch, onstage at innovfest unbound 2018. A two-day event that put the bustling startup ecosystem and technology space into the spotlight, innovfest unbound brought together entrepreneurs, corporate brands, trade agencies, and governments in the spirit of true innovation.
This year, over 14,000 attendees from more than 100 countries flocked to the Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre for networking, panel discussions, and workshops, and the PRecious team was happy to be right in the thick of the action.
With five clients moderating and speaking on different panels, we were always running from one audience to the next. Kicking off the first day of innovfest, Alex Crompton from Entrepreneur First, an individual-focused company builder and startup accelerator, moderated the “Lab to Market: How Investors Can Bridge the Divide” panel. Next, Martin Lim from Electrify, the first blockchain-based electricity marketplace spoke on the “Effective Use of Blockchain” to conclude the day. On Wednesday, Edgar Seah from Hedera Hashgraph, a lightning-fast blockchain alternative, gave his insights on the “Blockchain for Good” panel, followed by Kelvin Lee from Fundnel, a private investment platform, who discussed ”A New Wave of Fintech” on another panel. Our final client, Dev Dhiman from Experian, a consumer credit reporting agency, moderated the “Data & Cybersecurity” panel.
Our clients were not the only ones we were excited to see speaking at the conference. Our very own Managing Director, Lars, took the stage for the “Little Red Dot: Agency Edition” panel, where he joined other regional PR leaders in discussing the role of public relations in supporting innovative companies and initiatives.
Although the two days went by far too quickly, we thoroughly enjoyed seeing our clients and Lars in their element, discussing the subjects that they are most passionate about. We are proud to be part of the community of entrepreneurship and innovation that this event represents. Counting down the days to innovfest 2019!
