A multi-sensory Dairy Milk experience
Once again Cadbury’s will be offering a music themed multi-sensory experience to showcase its flavours range. The brand has commissioned a study look at the science between music and mood in order to help chocolate lovers decide which Dairy Milk flavour they most feel like – ingenious!
During this unique activation, attendees will have the chance to create their own music to match their Diary Milk profile with a one-on-one masterclass with DJ Marvin Humes.
Singapore Tourism Board and C&IT have teamed up to launch a MICE Forum and Fam event dubbed ‘Singapore INSPIRES’. Aimed at top European M&I planners, the event will be held in Singapore 23 – 27 March and open to senior agency buyers. Attendees will have the chance to visit some of the city’s top venues and attractions, take part in experiential activities and content sessions, and networking.
Green Light Events Rebrand
Irish events agency Green Light Events announces some big changes including the appointment of a new CEO, opening an office in San Francisco and rebrand to Cogs & Marvel. 2015 saw the brand increase their revenue by £7m whilst the last 12 months have seen the team nearly triple in size.
It’s hoped that these changes will help the company achieve their goal to double their turnover in the coming year.
