About Singapore

Singapore is a dynamic city with a population of about 5 million where you'll find a harmonious blend of culture, cuisine, arts and architecture.


Average temperature is about 30 - 32 Degree Celsius, and most of the time you will have sunshine. It usually rains in December so it is advisable to bring along an umbrella.


As Singapore is a humid country, it is advisable to bring light clothing. It is not considered rude if you do not wear a coat and wearing your normal working attire is considered proper. The air-conditioning in the conference venues might be cold and it is advisable to bring along a sweater or jacket.
