Last year’s APEX Networking Event in Singapore was held at Gardens by the Bay in the Flower Dome. It was a spectacular event that focused on four of the unique cultures represented in Singapore (Peranakan, Malay, Indian, and Chinese) showcased by a sea of floating orbs that changed colors upon the arrival of each culture's entertainment and passed hors d'oeuvres and serving stations that highlighted the expansive influence of those cultures on Singapore's cuisine.

This complete sensory experience set the stage for what is sure to be a fantastic Networking Event this year in Long Beach, California!
