For many years the process of putting together a conference programme has remained largely unchanged. Invitations are sent out, diaries are wrangled over, programmes are written and rewritten as the faculty evolves.
For Seamless Asia 2018 the process is being turned on its head. We know that the most value from a conference comes not from sessions led by the biggest brands or the most senior professionals, but from those peers pursuing real, impactful innovation. Many of these stories do not get told in the press, and we see it as a key duty of our show to bring these lessons in excellence to light.
With this in mind we are excited to be launching Spark Something @ Seamless Asia. This is a platform that empowers our community to submit well thought out session ideas, from presentations to workshops, that they would like to lead at next year’s show. After the application process closes we will be putting those sessions up for vote, allowing our participants to decide which sessions they would get the most value out of attending.
In this way, our programme will be perfectly matched to the key challenges being faced by our community, as well as providing a stage from which to showcase the best of Asian commerce innovation.
