FTE APEX Asia Expo incorporating Onboard Hospitality’s dedicated Forum-Asia zone has been postponed from November to February 3-4, 2021.
The decision to postpone the event by three months is designed to provide delegates and exhibitors with more certainty and greater opportunity to participate.
In an exciting development, the show will become FTE APEX Asia Expo+ and will be delivered as a hybrid event, powered by in-person participation onsite in Singapore and complemented by online participation to amplify its reach.
Onboard Hospitality Forum exhibition manager, Craig McQuinn says: “Recent hosted virtual events we’ve been involved with attracted more than 4,000 registrations, many from organisations who had never been able to attend an FTE live event before, proved that there is great demand to engage online, which we are keen to build upon. So, during two live show days (February 3-4) in addition to the physical activities on site in Singapore, virtual delegates will also be able to attend live online tours and product demos streamed directly from the FTE APEX Asia Expo+ exhibition hall at the Marina Bay Sands.
Select conference sessions will also be streamed online in real time, and a networking lounge will enable all premium attendees to network via messaging and video calls. Following this, for a period of 30 days, virtual attendees will be able to access the online portal at any hour of the day to watch conference presentations and supplier pitch sessions, and revisit exhibitors virtually to learn all about the products, services and solutions that can help them overcome today’s challenges and then thrive in the post-COVID-19 world.
The evolution of the event in this way is expected to create an unrivalled audience comprising thousands of the industry’s thought leaders and decision-makers.
