Singapore-based business events management company SingEx has joined forces with UK-based events platform Unbound to scale operations and bring together grassroots innovations from around the world.
Through the joint venture, SingEx will enable Unbound to expand its global event series, build new themes with novel festival concepts and scale its innovation advisory arm. The new company will be led by CEO-designate Daniel Seal, the current founder and CEO of Unbound Innovations Ltd.
The investment by SingEx will also allow Unbound to double its existing operations, expand into new markets and deliver events that promote innovation. On top of that, both companies will have the chance to tap into new market opportunities while introducing new event design and themes, and creating new Unbound Innovation Festivals in global growth markets.
“We will offer enterprises festival-like events where they will seek new and varied ideas and opportunities for their business growth,” said Aloysius Arlando, chief executive officer, SingEx Holdings.
“Together, we will strengthen our role as an enabler for the future economy by enhancing our access to capabilities and networks to key technology hubs and ecosystems globally. This will in turn foster greater connections with government and private organisations as well as digital communities.”
SingEx is responsible for major events in Singapore including the Singapore FinTech Festival (world’s largest FinTech event with more than 30,000 attendees) and Industrial Transformation ASIA-PACIFIC (region’s hotspot for Industry 4.0 technologies).
