Dear Members and Friends

The clock is indeed ticking. I would like to encourage you to submit a nomination for the 2018 SICC Awards which celebrate collaborative innovation. Nominations close on 30 November 2017.

The SICC Awards are open to members and non-members alike.   Submitting  your nomination could not be easier. You only need to submit your answers to eight simple questions.   Shortlisted finalists  will be invited to  present  their collaborations  to the judging panel.    Download the Awards Information Pack here.

Visit www.siccawards.com.sg for all award details.

Your Chamber’s 2018 SICC Awards Ceremony & Gala dinner will be held on 9 May 2018.   Mr Ong Ye Kung, Minister for Education (Higher Education and Skills) and Second Minister for Defence will be our Guest of Honour and will present the awards to the winners at this gala dinner.

This will be the third consecutive year your Chamber is making these awards. As in previous years, we are expecting high media interest and a big turnout of senior business leaders and owners, innovation frontrunners and key government officials at the event.

Themed “Celebrating Collaborative Innovation”, it is the only awards programme in Singapore that celebrates, learns from and recognises collaborative innovations between companies of all sizes and sectors.

Become a Corporate Sponsor: You can demonstrate your support for the Chamber and what it stands for by becoming a Corporate Sponsor of the 2018 Awards – click here for more sponsorship details.
