Singapore’s post-BIGSOUND conference All That Matters announces its 2018 program: Here are the highlights

Kicking off just as Brisbane’s BIGSOUND ends, Singapore’s All That Matters conference is Asia’s biggest entertainment conference. This year, the event is bringing some of the biggest guests from different entertainment industries back to Singapore’s Ritz-Carlton Hotel.

Notable this year are the amount of new names the event will be hosting. In fact, this year’s conference will see 75% brand new speakers covering a wide range of topics across all 5 conference streams – Music, Sports, Gaming, Digital and Marketing.

Gaming Matters will see the likes of Kevin Lin, the co-founder of Twitch and Sammie Kang, North American Community lead of PUBG Corp discussing the future of the games industry and esports, while Sports Matters brings ONE Championship founder and CEO Chatri Sityodtong and Greg Hooton, vice president of IMG Events. The Digital and Marketing streams will discuss the current Asian start-up culture and connecting with brand audiences.

The Music Matters stream sees Paul Smith (Spotify) and Jonathan Dickins (Manager of Adele) as keynote speakers and this year highlights the ever-growing music market, China, across multiple Music Matters forums with Tencent Music Entertainment as the China-related forum sponsor. And the Music Matters Live festival will close each night, with showcasing acts – including some Aussies – to be announced soon.
