About the Organizer
Established in 1966, the General Insurance Association of Singapore (GIA) seeks to promote development of the general insurance sector and constantly works to make all aspects of general insurance easier and more effective for consumers, agents and insurers based in Singapore.
As a trade association, GIA is actively involved in the business community, representing the interests of member companies, and assists in identifying emerging trends and responds to issues affecting the industry.
The Singapore Maritime Foundation (SMF) was established on 27 January 2004 to facilitate dialogue and cooperation among maritime stakeholders from the public and private sectors. As the bridge between the public and private sectors, SMF aims to provide the industry with a clear and representative voice, and spearhead projects to boost its development.
SMF also organises and participates in a host of maritime events to strengthen the Maritime Singapore brand. To date, SMF has significantly benefitted from strong support from all sectors of the industry which has enabled the organisation to reach out directly to the community for new areas of work to improve the current maritime ecosystem.
