Bringing ASEAN’s engineering community together for 36 years

More than 1,000 engineering professionals will convene in Singapore from 12 to 14 November, 2018 to exchange knowledge and create solutions in engineering to stimulate progress in ASEAN. Hosted by The Institution of Engineers, Singapore (IES) in association with the Land Transport Authority, the 36th edition of the annual Conference of the ASEAN Federation of Engineering Organisations (CAFEO 36) will be held at the Resorts World Sentosa.

CAFEO 36 will be an event with added significance, as it will coincide with Singapore’s Chairmanship of ASEAN. In light of the adoption of the Master Plan on ASEAN Connectivity 2025 by ASEAN leaders in September 2016, IES is aligning CAFEO 36 around two distinct themes – Engineering Rail Connectivity and Fostering Excellence in Engineering Education.

The one and only event in Asia that brings together 1000 engineering professionals from close to 30 countries across the entire engineering value chain.

For the first time, IES is also joining forces with the SMRT Corporation and the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) to organise two exciting and content-rich conferences – the Singapore Rail Technology Conference (SRTC) and ASEAN Engineering Deans Summit (AEDS).

Be part of CAFEO 36, Asia’s most exclusive gathering of engineering professionals.
