We will be conducting the Meet-The-Experts lunch sessions at the Forum. These will be held during the lunch time sessions of Saturday 2 March and Sunday 3 March. The lunch time sessions are chaired by a selection of our World Speakers and are for small groups to have a round table informal discussion or Q&A session.

Registration and payment for Meet-The-Experts is through the registration portal. The lunch sessions are priced at S$10 per session. Registration is on a first-come-first-served basis as seats are limited. You will receive an e-mail acknowledgement of your MTE registration if successful.

In the event you need to cancel your seat to Meet-The-Experts, please notify as soon as possible. Any additional tickets will be available at the morning tea break and will also be on a first-come-first-served basis.
