IMPORTANT REMINDERS
  1. Please wear your badge at all times. Badges are essential – you will NOT be admitted to ANY function areas without it. Please also do not lose your badge because a replacement will only be issued on production of a passport or government ID card.  A business card or other forms of ID will not be accepted.

  2. Always carry a sufficient supply of business cards so that you won’t have to run up to your room to get new ones. We do not have facilities to print new business cards for you.

  3. Please show up on time for your meeting appointments. If you cannot make it to a meeting appointment for any reason then please have the courtesy to inform your meeting partner by contacting our staff to fill out a “One on One Communication Form.”

PLEASE SETTLE ALL PAYMENTS BEFORE COMING!

Please ensure that your company has settled all pending payments for registration, hotel reservations and other items otherwise your accommodation arrangements may not be guaranteed and you will not be able to pick up your conference badge.
