— MEC Singapore, a leading media agency, www.mecglobal.com, has announced that it has been appointed to manage “Singapore: Inside Out” on behalf of the Singapore Tourism Board. ”Singapore: Inside Out
” is the Board’s international programme to celebrate Singapore’s 50th year of independence in 2015. It will be a travelling showcase that presents cross-disciplinary works of local talents across a spectrum of the creative industries and disciplines, such as architecture, design, fashion, film, food & beverage, music, and literary, performing and visual arts. Edelman will partner MEC on public engagement initiatives for these exciting events.
