IIT Everywhere Conference at Singapore, Saturday August 26 2006

The first ever Asia-wide IIT alumni event is being held in Singapore, on 26 August 2006. The focus is on "making a difference" in India, Asia and the world.
IIT Everywhere has already gained significant momentum with the support of Pan-IIT chapters in India and the USA, IIT Directors and early interest from several prospective sponsors. Representatives of Singapore government bodies & institutions, prominent figures from other Asian countries and IIT Alumni from across the region are expected to attend the event. We fully expect the Conference to be a “sold out” event, so book early to avoid disappointment.

Who should attend?

  1. IIT Alumni from Singapore, India and the rest of Asia – for world-class networking, insights and good old nostalgia.
  2. Senior officials from Government and Educational institutions – to gain a better understand of the success of the IIT system and to make quality connections within the IITs.
  3. Senior managers from corporations in Singapore and Asia – for priceless insights from successful IIT and non-IIT speakers in the areas of business and technology.

What: IIT Everywhere Conference
Where: Rasa Sentosa Resort

When: Saturday, August 26, 2006
