What is ICEDC?

The purpose of the 2nd International Creative Event Design Competition (ICEDC) is to offer students from any university, polytechnic, or college, anywhere in the world, the opportunity to develop, and display their skills in creative event design.
All events must be creatively designed to provide truly memorable experiences for their participants. The 2nd ICEDC will enable students from any course to showcase their expertise in designing an event that is truly amazing and awesome.

Who are the Organisers?

ICEDC is being organised by the Asia Pacific Institute for Events Management (APIEM) in partnership with the Lyceum of the Philippines University Laguna (LPUL).

How will ICEDC Operate?

The participating teams will work independently from their home locations to produce their creative event designs. After the designs are submitted our panel of judges will shortlist five teams to go through to the grand final which will take place in hybrid format, hosted, and staged at the Lyceum of the Philippines University Laguna Campus – situated one hour by land transport from Manila.
