With the resumption of traffic between the East and the West, it's time to set our sights on the future. Following the resounding success of the inaugural FIND Global Summit in 2022, our goal this year is to further establish Singapore as a hub for innovative and future-proof solutions in the creative industry. By collaborating closely with our local and regional partners, as well as creatives from diverse disciplines worldwide, including both established figures and emerging talents, the summit will foster meaningful conversations around the pressing issues we currently face in the industry. Guided by our five pillars – Regenerative Design, Holistic Hospitality, The Asian Blueprint, The Innovation Era and The Triad of ‘C’ – we aim to comprehensively and constructively address these challenges.

OUR CONTENT PILLARS

Accordion1

REGENERATIVE DESIGN

Regenerative design prioritizes the restoration and regeneration of natural systems, social equity, and local community support, offering an environmentally sound approach to creating and promoting design. Businesses can reduce their environmental impact while also promoting positive social and economic outcomes by incorporating regenerative principles into their practices. What's more, regenerative design encourages innovation and creativity, allowing designers to collaborate and implement sustainable solutions for a greener future.

Accordion2

HOLISTIC HOSPITALITY

The concept of holistic hospitality places great emphasis on promoting the well-being of guests, employees, and the environment in the hospitality industry. By prioritizing the physical and emotional needs of guests and employees while adopting eco-friendly practices, businesses can reduce their impact on the environment and promote sustainable and socially responsible tourism. Holistic hospitality also fosters creative collaboration, providing businesses with opportunities to explore innovative ways of engaging with guests, making it an essential approach for achieving social and economic success for businesses in the future.

Accordion3

THE ASIAN BLUEPRINT

By highlighting the most recent architectural and design developments and trends in East and Southeast Asia, this dialogue offers architects and designers valuable insights and inspiration for expanding their work in the region. New projects and opportunities are showcased, emphasizing cutting-edge advancements in building technology and design, such as innovative green spaces, material innovation, high-tech integration, and the harmonious fusion of traditional and contemporary design. These forward-thinking approaches promote sustainable and innovative methods in design and community building, inspiring new directions for the industry's future.

Accordion5

THE INNOVATION ERA

Technology has revolutionized design and transformed our interactions with objects and spaces, fundamentally changing how we live, work, and interact with our surroundings. For instance, augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) are powerful tools that help architects and designers create unique experiences. Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning algorithms are also used to analyze user data and identify patterns in behavior and preferences, which help in making informed design decisions for personalized and intuitive consumer experience. The advancement of technology has also made it easier for different creative disciplines to collaborate more holistically, bridging the gap between various areas of expertise and providing new opportunities for collaborative work.

Accordion6

CREATIVITY, COMMERCE AND COMMUNICATION

The triad of "C" that propels success in the creative industry – Creativity is the impetus behind innovative ideas and concepts, setting a business apart from its competitors, while sourcing new talents serves as a powerful strategy. Commerce is pivotal in ensuring financial stability and providing the necessary resources to support creative endeavors. Communication, both internal and external, is fundamental in forging a coherent vision and ensuring all stakeholders are working toward the same goal; a potent brand can foster strong relationships and consumer loyalty. The synergy between these three elements generates a comprehensive approach to managing a creative business, empowering it to flourish and expand amidst competition.
