Postponement Notice

Due to the current situation with regard to the coronavirus outbreak, we are sorry to inform you that the ASIFMA Tech and Ops Conference originally scheduled for March 17-18 in Singapore has been postponed until further notice as we take seriously the personal health and safety of our stakeholders.


We hope that we can continue to count on your support to make this event a success once the new date is confirmed. Thank you for your patience as we work out the details. 


We look forward to seeing you at the ASIFMA Tech and Ops Conference later this year.
