My Live Singapore Topic 

The Need for an Asian Touring Network – How can it Work? — Only by coming together as a collective group of Asian presenters is it possible to present better shows, at a lower cost, with far greater return on investment and market outreach. With a network of presenters agreeing to book shows in a pre-determined continuous booking schedule, the power of negotiation moves towards the presenters, who can negotiate better guarantee/co-producing deals; audiences get bigger, better shows sooner, and producers sell more weeks, reducing remount and transit costs. It’s a win-win-WIN! How can this be achieved?
