About 10 days ago I participated in the MICE Asia 2014 Show at Suntec Centre in Singapore. This was the first and only show in Asia which focuses solely on networking between the buyers and sellers for the MICE industry. I was a two day exhibit with a conference taking place along side the exhibition. This brought together the industry’s top names to discuss: key event issues, recent venue and restaurant openings, guides on how to run events, event concepts, social media, how to negotiate when choosing venues, deciding on locations for events and general buying tips. As a corporate magician MICE Asia I did continuous short to attract booth traffic and potential leads. I have done that for clients at trade shows and it was fun to it for myself. I got many new leads and I am currently in the process of following up with them. I hope that this Exhibit will be back next year and I will definitely participate.
October was a busy month. I was performing mainly close up at various corporate events. One event was a a marketing event from Zenith Watches. They invited existing and potential clients to further establish the brand in Singapore. As a special guest the invited Felix Baumgartner the man who did the free fall from outer space – the motto of the event was achieving the impossible. It was hosted in warehouse which was nicely set up. Below is picture from set up at the entrance.
Next was performances for the Visa award night at the Gardens by the Bay. Somehow my suit and tie matched the overall event…
Then I was working for Neuberger Berman at Boathouse and at an NTUC Income client event. I finished that week at the Hyatt Sunday Brunch performance. I guess I most have done 10 hours of card tricks that week… but I am not complaining… 😉
