SMF Awards & 84th Anniversary Dinner 2016

On Thursday 13 Oct, Singapore Manufacturing Federation (SMF) held its annual keynote event – SMF Awards & 84th Anniversary Dinner at The Ritz Carlton, Millenia Singapore. Guest-of-Honour, Mr S. Iswaran, Minister for Trade & Industry (Industry), graced the function with close to 800 guests from various government agencies, embassies, and the business community. The awards, which were given out during the evening, aim to recognise companies for their outstanding achievements in business growth, innovative business model and collaborative partnership.

Minister S. Iswaran shared one key message – Singapore companies must be ready to adopt the latest manufacturing technologies and business models in order to stay relevant and ensure future competitiveness in the manufacturing industry. It is timely to seize the opportunity where the pace of technological evolution is transforming the global manufacturing environment.

As one of the Gold Sponsors, iSwitch had the opportunity to share with the guests about leveraging on electricity cost savings to help bring about development growth and sustainability for their businesses.

It was definitely another successful and well organised event that SMF has awed the guests with.
