Marina Bay Sands Hotel and Convention Center
In early March, your WSAVA executive board met in Singapore, the location of our 2018 Annual Congress, for our annual face-to-face meeting. The meeting gives us an opportunity to discuss the strategic issues that affect the WSAVA’s future and to help us reach our goal of serving all the individual members of our 101 member associations. The meeting also gave us an opportunity to meet with the Singapore local host committee and to plan exciting developments for the 2018 WSAVA World Congress. Singapore is a beautiful city–state, and I urge you to attend what could be one of our best and most spectacular congresses.
The venue, the Marina Bay Sands Hotel and Convention Center, is stunning. It consists of an iconic hotel linked to a superb mall (Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands), a casino, and the convention center—all built on reclaimed land close to the sea. The top floor of the hotel is a large open air space with the largest infinity pool I have ever seen and fantastic views of the city by night and day. Singapore is also a food-lovers’ paradise. Whatever your taste or budget, there is something for you. All this in addition to the world-class scientific program that you would expect at the WSAVA World Congress.
