HCM City (VNA) – The Vietnam Creative Festival 2016, which seeks to promote creative sectors in the country, will be organised in HCM City at the beginning of October this year.

Launched by the Vietnam Creative Entrepreneurs Network, the festival is a platform to support creative entrepreneurs to meet, interact, share experiences and connect with investors.

With the key concept "Senses of Vietnam", the festival encourages creative views and expressions about the country. The concept is inspired by exquisite natural landscapes from the north to the south, familiar to the daily life of Vietnamese people.

During the festival, there will be a three-day exhibition featuring artworks and products developed by young and talented creative entrepreneurs in Viet n am.

The main part of the festival will be a two-day creative entrepreneurship and innovation conference with a series of talks about creative sectors.

The festival is not only a platform to promote the creative economy, which has great potential in Vietnam, but also aims to inspire new Vietnamese products and tourism branding and services as a hub for Vietnamese national brand promotion.

During the festival, a Creative Business Cup 2016 will be held for the first time to look for new and original business ideas with strong market potential and creative skills.

The winners will compete in the global competition in Denmark in November.-VNA
