There's great synergy here, made clear by Kenneth Feld's own words: 'Our productions create memories, stimulate the imagination, and touch the heart. It's all about people connecting and communicating'," said Aram Ebben of exp, who co-chairs SATE '14 with Stefan Lawrence of Rethink Leisure & Entertainment.
