Event Details

As markets in Asia mature and modernise, its consumers are increasingly looking to identify with brands that embody the region's diverse multicultural heritage. At the same time, there is growing support around the world for products and services that are produced close to source.

How are Singapore's entrepreneurs building up strong brands with South-east Asian and local origins? How are home-grown artisan craft makers capturing Asian culture with modern urban aspirations in their offering? What can global businesses learn from local artisans?

Join us for an exclusive conversation with two Asian artisan entrepreneurs, Priscilla Shunmugam, founder of designer label Ong Shunmugam, and Jamie Koh, founder of Brass Lion Distillery, as we invite them to share their perspectives on building a brand from Singapore for the region's increasingly sophisticated consumers.

We are looking forward to welcoming you at Brass Lion Distillery, Singapore's first multi-concept craft spirits micro-distillery, as we engage in conversations over cocktails and canapes.
