Do swing by if you are free this weekend and is interested to find out more about book publishing in Singapore. The full event details and programs are available here in PDF. 🙂
New media is definitely the media medium for brands & products to reach out to consumers & the public. Times have evolved beyond that of simply just newspapers and magazines. It is the dawn of a new era – New Social Media (Bloggers/websites/facebook/twitter/etc). We look forward to hearing your speech Alvin!
