Working with Web-Conceptions, freelance web developers

Web-Conceptions freelance web developers were responsible for putting the site together.

“Focus for this project was to deliver a functional, professional and efficient website for promoting the conference and in turn encouraging participation and registration,” says Web-Conceptions.

Overall design was geared by the client, to portray an image of war (as per the conference topic), and to present content in a clear and concise manner – easy and quick to navigate. In addition to information about the conference, the site also has a page dedicated to Singapore travel, with embedded video from the official tourism organisation.

Web-Conceptions provided a complete website solution, including initial consulting, web design concept, programming development, organisation and layout of content provided by client, as well as some unique content written, elements of SEO with meta tags and social media, and website hosting.
