Agent 1010, suit up


On the backs of our past success running Singapore Management University (SMU) events, we were once again approached, this time to help organise the 10th anniversary of SMU’s Masters in IT and Business (MITB) programme. The most important question on our minds was how would we make this even better than our success last year?

Making its return was the ever popular photobooth, complete with props and instant printing. Guests couldn’t get enough of it and were still taking selfies well past the event’s end!

As part of our sustainability initiative, the backdrop was mounted on the same collapsible structure we used last year.

With twice the number of items, we opted for a cleaner look, settling on glass cups placed upon cork coasters where interested buyers could drop in their bidding slips. This year, all proceeds from the silent auction went straight to the Singapore Children’s Cancer Foundation (CCF). Over SGD$2,000 was raised that night!

Attendees were kept busy through the night with our James Bond-inspired party games, starting from the back of the programme card. That’s right, our well-designed programme cards doubled as a game supplement.

The final piece of the puzzle lay hidden in our in-house produced Cryptex – straight out of The Da Vinci Code! Solving the combination provided the final clue to winning the coveted prize: Find Bond. Just who was Bond?

This night was the chance for professors, alumni, current students and partners of MITB to relax and network. Old bonds were given a new lease of life and brand new connections were forged. More than anything, the night served as a reminder of all they had collectively achieved, and all they were capable of achieving in the years to come.
