Singapore International Water Week 2012 provides a platform for global leaders around the world to gather and network.
Held in conjunction with the 3rd World Cities Summit and the inaugural CleanEnviro Singapore, delegates, trade visitors and exhibitors are given more opportunities to promote water/urban cities solutions and tap into a vast network of public and private sector players in urban solutions from around the world. Also, with the different conferences and business forums held during the event, delegates are given the opportunity to attend various meetings and forums to address challenges and explore opportunities in the integration of water solutions and urban planning in cities around the world.
Insights of the event during the internship as follows;
The workplace designed for us made communication between the car management company and us more effective. I felt that it was a good arrangement as there were many issues that were needed to be settled face-to-face. I learnt that communication is very important, especially during the event period as there will be issues that need the approval of both parties before any action can be taken.
The event setting was visually pleasing. The conventions were also well constructed. Much effort and manpower was needed to make this whole event a success. I feel that it is especially important to be able to get hold of the correct amount of manpower with appropriate skills so as to achieve better results.
After the opening ceremony, I specially made a trip down to see how the event turned out. I felt really happy, that it ended successfully. As I’ve had been working on this event for a long time, I felt relieved that it ended off well. I also felt a sense of achievement when there were no complaints by any guests on the opening ceremony.
I felt that, teamwork was really important. My team and I had worked hard and efficiently throughout the event. We gave each other support whenever someone needed it.
