ALIFE will be hosting a press conference this Tuesday, 5/5/2015 at 1500 Black Box Publika Kuala Lumpur to address these constant changes and for the first time, Thirst 2015 organisers will also be sharing their journey. Local and international media are invited to attend with their respective photographers/videographers. Stakeholders and industry members are also welcome to observe or participate in the event. Do join us, lend your support and show that arts, events & entertainment matters!
