Celebrating its 10th birthday this year, The Events Artery has helmed many large scale events, including Shine Festival and events for the Health Promotion Board. It promises to connect clients to their target audiences through the power of live events.

It believes in doing everything with heart and passion and giving the audience the best experience it can receive because it believes that people will forget the things you said and did, but not how you make them feel.

By working with clients to effectively strategise the most suitable plan to suit their needs, the agency crafts stories, formulates key messages, identifies challenges and opportunities and measures the results after the campaigns. With the goal in mind to build the right platform to achieve their business goals, be it product launches, brand activation events, festivals or conferences, it aims to build audience-centric events, circling around what it will see, feel, touch and remember from the event.

By engaging audiences intellectually and emotionally, the agency translates content on the ground by creating an authentic experience, often through inspiring speakers and topics, collaborating with artists, writers, thought-leaders and pundits and matching brands with their network of influencers and celebrities.
