We draw your attention to the BIIA 2022 Biennial Conference, which will take place on May 23, 2022 to May 25th, 2022 at the Park Royal Collection Marina Bay Hotel in Singapore.  In this newsletter we are providing an update on the event.  The registration is now open.

We are confident that the event can take place as a physical networking conference due to the fact that Singapore has relaxed the recent restrictions concerning conferences and exhibits.  Nevertheless we remain cautious and will have contingency plans in place should the situation change.

We look forward to your support for this important event.  Please review the updated events page.
