ABOUT US

Based in Singapore. EDX (Enterprise Digital Transformation) was founded by a group of B2B event professionals with more than 10 years of industry experience. They wanted to prove that events are not just about learning and networking – that senior level events can also be creative, purposeful, and more fun than just listening to presentations.

EDX creates not only corporate events but also business intelligence and customized platforms to convert leads and contacts into real deals. EDX believes that a perfect mix of event solutions that suit the client’s needs could impact not only its bottom line, but also the brand experience.
