Dear Members and Friends

I am delighted to announce that Mr Ong Ye Kung, Minister for Education (Higher Education and Skills) and Second Minister for Defence will be our Guest of Honour for the 2018 SICC Awards Ceremony & Gala Dinner to be held on 9 May 2018.

The SICC Awards are designed to recognise, celebrate and learn from the commercial collaborations between companies to create new innovative products, processes and services and/or to resolve barriers to capacity growth.

This is the third year running that the Chamber will be presenting these Awards. SICC firmly believes that collaboration is often the quickest way for companies to innovate.

The SICC Awards are open to members and non-members alike. If you have not submitted your nominations, please do so by 30 November 2017. Information on the award categories and the nomination pack can be found by clicking here.

As part of the lead up to the 2018 Awards, your Chamber is organising a panel discussion with our 2017 SICC Award winners this Friday, 8 September. This is the ideal platform for you to interact with our Innovation Champions and exchange practical tips on how to establish a collaboration and execute to innovate. We still have a few seats left. Click here to register. I look forward to your company.

With warmest regards

Victor Mills
Chief Executive
