  1. Two cocktail receptions on 14 February (Bangkok) and 18 February (Singapore) to provide more quality time to engage with every single partner.
  2. Two events for social networking on 15 February. We start with free flow brunch at Pagoda Chinese Restaurant (located on the 4th floor of Marriott Marquis Queen’s Park Hotel) and in the evening, a special night called Beer Garden with Thai Street Food where we try to create a Thai Beer Garden atmosphere with food, drinks, and fun & games.
  3. Two dinners on 16 February (Dinner Cruise in Bangkok) and on 19 February (Awards Dinner in Singapore at Marina Bay Sands).
  4. One-on-One Meetings for the WCA First Conference will be held on 16 and 17 February at Bangkok Marriott Marquis Queen’s Park Hotel to ensure that the intimacy and exclusivity of the WCA First group remains.
  5. Attendees of WCA First Conference can also attend a whole day’s worth of One-on-One meetings with over 2,500 other WCA members at the WCA Worldwide Conference on 19 February at Suntec, Singapore.
