The annual SCS Gala Dinner was held this year on 8 March at the Shangri-La Hotel. A key highlight of the Society’s calendar, the event was well-attended by over 900 infocomm and digital media professionals from both the public and private sectors.
The Guest-of-Honour, Mr S Iswaran, Minister for Communications and Information, opened the evening by speaking on the importance of the three P’s – People, Partnership and Platform – in securing Singapore’s future in the digital age.
SCS President Howie Lau then addressed the members and guests, sharing the importance of keeping up with the fast pace of change in the industry. In his speech, he reaffirmed that the Society will continue renewing its efforts to better serve SCS members and the industry in the coming year.
Six distinguished individuals were also honoured for their achievements at the IT Leader Awards 2019 held in conjunction with the Gala Dinner. Now in its 23rd iteration, the IT Leader Awards recognise outstanding individuals who have made their mark in the infocomm and digital media industry.
