A number of agency field trips are available to registered delegates as part of this conference. The field trips will take place on the afternoon of 22nd June 2016, Wednesday. Buses will depart the conference venue at 12:30 pm.
Should you be interested in attending any of the field trips, you can select your preferred theme and a host agency will be assigned to you based on the chosen theme. As there are limited places, we can only accept your registration on a first-come-first-served basis.
All field trips incur a fee of S$25 to cover costs. Transportation will be arranged for all attendees to and from the agency venues and a packed lunch will be provided.
Due to logistical reasons, we regret that we will not be able to accommodate changes after you have registered for a particular theme.
