Featuring passionate creative content frontrunners from local and international industries.
KUALA LUMPUR, 1 June 2016 – The sixth annual Kre8tif! Conference by the Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) is back again this year, taking place over two days from 1 to 2 June 2016 at the Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral. With the tagline ‘Kre8 Momentum’, the Kre8tif! Conference 2016 is aimed at inspiring the growth of Malaysia’s creative content industry – sparking innovation and exploration of the major trends across the creative sector.
MDEC is proud to provide the right platform for budding Malaysians to showcase their talents to an international audience through Kre8tif! Conference. Hasnul Hadi Samsudin, Director of Creative Content & Technologies, MDEC enthused, “Malaysia continues to show massive potential in the creative content industry, year after year. We have witnessed some really amazing talents emerge in the past and how MDEC has supported them in fulfilling their potential, but the challenge remains in providing others with a similar path to success. A platform like Kre8tif! Conference can provide emerging home-grown talents with that much needed support, and we are confident it will open doors to bigger opportunities for them.”
“We are moving faster than we predicted in reaching the goals we have set. In 2015, the local animation industry recorded a remarkable growth by 52% in exports based on contributions from key companies such as Animonsta, Giggle Garage, Tau Films and Les Copaque. Malaysia’s gaming market is also expected to grow 20% to RM 868.70 million by the year 2017. With conferences like Kre8tif!, we hope emerging talents in Malaysia can take great pointers from the main players and continue challenging themselves to create top-notch quality content,” added Hasnul.
