Doing Business in Singapore & SE Asia - Briefing, Panel Discussion and Lunch 

Southeast Asia is one of the fastest growing regions of the world. Revenues of organizations based in this region have grown from 7.5% in 2014 to an estimated 9.3% in 2015. Only China is growing at a more robust rate, estimated to be about 10% in 2015. More growth for SE Asia is expected in 2016 and beyond.

Due to this continued growth, US based associations are finding opportunities to expand into this region, basing their efforts out of Singapore, the world’s number one business-friendly economy in the world according to a report by The World Bank and International Finance Corporation.

If you are considering expanding more into this region or are already doing some business here, you will not want to miss our interactive session designed specifically for associations.

The agenda includes:

Introduction to the Asia Pacific Region
Trends and Perspective of the Region
Profile of Workforce
How SE Asia operates as an Integrated Bloc
Where the Opportunities exist for Associations

Panel discussion with Associations doing business in SE Asia including the American Counseling Association, the American Society for Quality and CFA Institute.

Presentations by our sponsors- the Singapore Exhibition & Convention Bureau and the Marina Bay Sands and Sands Resorts Macao.


A brief questionnaire is included in the registration to help us customize the content.
