Designers and design business owners got a chance to let their hair down and leisurely mingle with their fellow associates during the Designers Meet-And-Greet networking event, jointly presented by the DesignSingapore Council, the Design Business Chamber Singapore (DBCS) and the Singapore Institute of Landscape Architects (SILA).
Held at the cozy National Design Centre, the event began with welcome addresses from Mr Tai Lee Siang, President of the DBCS as well as Mr Damian Tang, President of SILA. Following that, participants were in for a treat as Mr Lawrence Chong, CEO of Consulus Pte Ltd, shared practical advice on how companies can take their design business abroad, perhaps even become a leading global player in creative services. Before the networking session, the DesignSingapore Council spoke about some of the assistance schemes available to design companies.
In all, more than 80 participants spent an evening with good food, good company as well as good information that will help them in their business in one way or another.
