Finally, 2021 has ended! It has been real challenging to stay in the game to say the least. The dynamic situation that's facing event managers and travel agents have put us on multiple halts through the year. Nonetheless, we continue to stay positive. How we used to do things does not matter anymore as we progress toward living with COVID-19. We look ahead to create, innovate and progress to build a better travel and events ecosystem to stay ahead of the change.
Here are some of our highlights in 2021 incorporating new technologies and services.
Rave @ Shopee
The online shop was open in mid-2020 with much skepticism as we do not know if the system is able to support travel and attraction ticketing. After some consideration, we decided to give it a shot and launch the store with several of our long-time partners. This sales channel allows our customers who utilise Shopee for their regular online shopping to shop with us with discounts, last minute deals, Shopee vouchers, cashback and much more - making shopping more fun! We strongly believe in customer service excellence and would like to thank all our shoppers who have given us 4.9/5 stars for their shopping experience with Rave! Learn more

Nanyang International Music Competition 2021
Client: NAFA School of Music
Organized by NAFA School of Music, the establishment of this competition seeks to align with NAFA’s mission to inspire learning and growth through the arts. We hope that this competition would inculcate creative attitudes and a spirit of curiosity and responsibility in our young musicians as they come together to share the fruits and labor of their musical learning journey.
The bi-annual competition received 643 entries worldwide for Western and Chinese Divisions. Due to the pandemic, the NIMC accepted virtual competitors with the belief that performing should not stop during challenging times. Thus, we not only managed the live shows but simultaneously, the virtual competition as well. Learn more
