The creative industries in Singapore are the fastest expanding sector on the island, delivering around 6% GDP (Media sector value in 2008 = S$22Bn). They are seen as a key growth opportunity and through the Singapore Media Development Authority over £100M is currently being invested in digital infrastructure, innovation and international connections – reinforcing the position of Singapore as a key creative hub (a “digital port”) and therefore a competitive base into Asia,
Asia TV Forum, in Singapore 8-10 Dec, is the most significant media content market in Asia, a place to get an immediate snapshot of the latest trends in TV, mobile and multi-platform content and meet the significant buyers and distributors across the region.
Supported by UK Trade & Investment, I’ll be producing a three day mission to Singapore (through my project management arm parameter), leading a delegation of 10-15 UK creative content businesses. The visit to Asia TV Forum will provide UK businesses with a package of market entry support including pre-market training and advice, discounted access to the show active networking opportunities and introductions to Singaporean businesses, representing both potential clients and partners, to further understanding of the sector in this rapidly growing marketplace.
(NB: there is an opportunity to combine with the supported event in Beijing on 6&7 Dec focused on digital animation – again please ask for further information)
