It’s a one-two punch for M2.0 Live, M2.0 Communications’ events team, as two of their conferences—Slingshot MNL 2015, organized for the Department of Trade & Industry (DTI), and NXCities, organized for the Bases Conversion Development Authority (BCDA)—were shortlisted for the Asia Pacific MICE Awards in the Best Event Tech Startup and Best Conferences category, respectively.

Both events were large-scale international conferences, gathering thought leaders to discuss the important issues of our time: the tech startup landscape in the Philippines for Slingshot, and sustainable urban development for NXCities.

The annual MICE Awards “recognize excellence within the Events Industry, and will acknowledge those who are paying a defining role in supporting, growing, and moving the industry forwards.”

Slingshot MNL 2015 also recently won the Gold Anvil Awards last February.
