Featuring: Kelven Tan, CFEE; Vice President of Dynamic Attractions, Business Development for Asia
Kelven Tan has over 28 years' experience in entertainment and events marketing, and is as much sought after public speaker on the global festival circuit. He has presented in Shangai, London, Christchurch NZ, Hong Kong, the US, Malaysia and Seoul.
He served on the board of the International Association of Amusement Parks and in 2001 was awarded with the Meritorious Service award in recognition of his service to the Association. He served 2 terms on the board of the International Festivals & Events Association and has produced two Grand Pinnacle Award winning events.
His talents were used to increase the number of runners in the Singapore Marathon from 37,000 to 60,000 in just three years. He was also responsible for reshaping and revitalizing the Canadian Shambhala Music festival by creating four new revenue streams.
Beyond being a world-renowned through-leader in the festival industry, in his own words he has spent his entire career in pursuit of the simplest, yet most meaningful of tasks, bringing a smile to someone's face.
Opening Keynote: As professional festival and event producers, we make it our own to be part of our society's life celebrations. Be it in trade, trends or lifestyles, every festival and event put together requires a complex, highly interconnected yet simply focused objective of creating memories worth repeating. Kelven Tan
