The Design League Cup (DLC) officially launched its first-ever cycling event at Changi Beach Park, with Minister of State Low Yen Ling as the guest of honour to flag off the participants alongside the DLC committee.
The event, organised by Admira and in joint collaboration by Society of Interior Designers, Singapore (SIDS), Singapore Institute of Architects (SIA), Singapore Furniture Industries Council (SFIC), Singapore Fashion Council (SFC), Singapore Institute of Landscape Architects (SILA), Design Business Chamber Singapore (DBCS), Singapore Institute of Planners (SIP), Association of Advertising & Marketing Singapore (AAMS) aims to bring together Singapore’s design community through participation in a unifying sport.
The DLC’s mission is to establish a strong relationship among design bodies across different disciplines through sports participation. The event is also a great opportunity for design professionals to network and build camaraderie amongst the Singapore design community. With a strong community of passionate designers, it can potentially lead to more collaborations and thus more innovations, making the design scene in Singapore flourish. This event also raised funds for the Thye Hua Kwan Moral Charities (THKMC).
With the success of its inaugural event, the DLC looks forward to organising more activities that will promote collaboration and unity within the design industry.
