Conference Recap: Last-Minute Excursion to Singapore

 

Bridget Fox, one of our fantastic Meeting Planners, shares a recap of her recent (very last-minute) excursion to Singapore for the IMA Annual Conference. Ewald Consulting is so lucky to have such a dedicated employee as Bridget, who was willing to go with the flow. This conference was a success, thanks in part to her.

IMA spent four days at the Shangri La Singapore just a few blocks off Orchard Street. Most of the meetings and evening events took place in the Shangri La. The opening reception took place in a beautiful space located along some of their outstanding gardens, designed with perfection.

The second night of the conference was an absolute blast. Every member was invited to the local RedDot Brewhouse for a delicious dinner. With a laidback atmosphere and enjoyable company, this evening proved to be very fun for members to catch up and network outside the official conference venue.

This was the first conference where we had simultaneous translation in English and Mandarin for all sessions. This new asset was a great way to include each and every member, making sure all could participate and feel connected to this outstanding association. IMA had many well-known and respected presenters from the industry.

After a busy four days, the conference ended with a formal awards ceremony held at the Shangri La. Six awards were given to organizations from around the world for their work with magnesium — including Yamaha, University of Oxford, FGS Technology, Advanced Materials Institute and General Motors.

Singapore was a phenomenal host for this conference. Many of the attendees came from nearby countries in Asia and many others from Europe and the United States. Singapore’s culture, hospitality and generosity made the experience unique and overwhelmingly successful.
