About

Kre8tif! is an initiative from Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) an agency under the Ministry of Communication & Multimedia Malaysia, with the mandate to develop the digital content industry in Malaysia.

Established in 2009, Kre8tif! has become the definitive business networking platform for the digital content industry in Malaysia and across South East Asia.
