The event will include main stage sessions, travel buyer roundtables, and breakfast sessions, along with “The Big Idea” interactive session where attendees will collectively tackle a topic important to the industry. Meanwhile, the Worldwide ERC APAC Regional Summit Singapore will offer delegates the opportunity to benefit from learning and networking sessions with other seasoned mobility professionals and those new to the industry across topics that cover the entire mobility and relocation ecosystem.

We are very excited to team up with Worldwide ERC to bring greater value to attendees of our individual conferences by creating this broader opportunity for learning and networking through our co-located events in Asia-Pacific,” said Suzanne Neufang, CEO, GBTA. “We believe that collaboration is the key to driving innovation and progress in the field of global talent mobility and relocation. By co-locating our event with GBTA, we not only will combine our strengths and resources but also expand and deepen our impact in the APAC market. We are grateful for this opportunity and thrilled to witness the results it will yield for our delegates,” said Lynn Shotwell, CEO, Worldwide ERC.
