I lost my badge onsite

For any lost badges, you can request for reprinting of your badge at no cost at the registration desk.

I have not yet paid my registration fee, can I attend the conference?

All registration fee payments must be completed prior to the event date. Alternatively, you can make payment on-site during badge collection. If you have already initiated a bank transfer but the payment has not yet appeared in the GPCA account, kindly provide proof of payment to expedite the release of your badge.

It would be best to settle the payment early for bank transfer as it would take 3-5 business days to process.

What is the payment method?

Pre-registered attendees have the option to pay their registration fees online or through a bank transfer. Onsite registrations, however, can only be settled with cash or via an online payment link.

Is there any reserved seating during the 18ᵗʰ Annual GPCA Forum?

Reserved seating is only applicable for VIP guests.

Is there any shuttle bus from hotels to the venue?

The Annual GPCA Forum offers attendees a free shuttle service to and from selected hotels during the event.

What would be the dress code during the three-day event?

The dress code should be business attire, business casual, or a national dress during the conference, networking sessions and gala dinners.

Is it possible to get a copy of the speaker presentations and photos?

All registered attendees will receive the approved speakers’ presentations and conference photos a week after the event. An email will be sent out to all attendees with a link where you can download the materials.
