Located in Singapore’s central business district with stunning views of the city, the five-star Marina Bay Sands offers every amenity for a productive and comfortable Forum. Be sure to take advantage of its world-class exhibition, shopping, dining and entertainment facilities.


Health and safety

The IAPP will continue to follow state, local and venue requirements for meeting safely, plus guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as it relates to COVID-19 and other communicable diseases.

Currently there are no health and safety requirements for attendance at the IAPP Asia Privacy Forum. However, we will continue to monitor and communicate COVID-19 developments as needed.

What to expect from the Asia Privacy Forum 2023:

  • A clean venue, in accordance with the Marina Bay Sands Expo & Convention Centre’s standards.
  • Respect for personal space.

We ask that you please stay home if:

  • You are sick or have COVID-19 symptoms (such as fever, a sore throat, chills, cough, shortness of breath, congestion, nausea or vomiting).
  • You have been directed to self-isolate or quarantine by a health care provider or public health official.
  • You are awaiting the results of a COVID-19 test.

Please monitor your health throughout the conference and stay home if you begin to feel sick. Please contact us if you have questions.

Assistance and accommodations: If you need any special accommodations (e.g., if you are blind/visually impaired or use a wheelchair), please contact us in advance to arrange for assistance at the Asia Privacy Forum.

Method of payment: You can make your payment by wire transfer, Mastercard, Visa, American Express or Discover. Please contact us for wire transfer information.

VAT information: VAT is not charged on event registration. No VAT invoice will be issued.

Registration policy: Registration fees represent the cost of a single pass per person. Sorry, no sharing passes.

Cancellation policy: Registration fees are not refundable but are transferable to a person in the same company, pending IAPP approval. No refunds if you cancel or do not show up. If you do not cancel prior to the end of the conference, you will be liable for the registration fee. Your completed registration form, online registration and email confirmation constitute binding agreement between two parties.

Cvent Events app privacy notice: In association with attending one or more of our conferences, you will have the option to download the mobile app to help you navigate the conference and plan your schedule. The IAPP has engaged a cloud service provider (Cvent) to host the Cvent Events App, which will allow conference attendees to view the program, including any last-minute updates to sessions, speaker biographies and venue navigation. There will no longer be a printed program for events.

To access the app, conference attendees must download the “Cvent Events” app on their mobile device or access the program on Cvent’s event-specific webpage, entering a unique event ID which the IAPP will send by email. The IAPP shares with Cvent event registrants’ first and last name, email address, and mobile phone (if provided) to allow event attendees to be authenticated when they access the web-based event app. More information about Cvent’s privacy practices is available in its global privacy notice.

Conduct at IAPP events: The IAPP is dedicated to making our meetings and events safe places for all. We do not tolerate harassment of any kind. We insist all participants at IAPP events — whether attendees, staff, faculty, exhibitors or sponsors — demonstrate respect and courtesy to all. This includes refraining from inappropriate language, comments and conduct, in person or by electronic communications (such as social media).

Anyone who has experienced improper conduct in violation of this policy is encouraged to report it immediately to IAPP event staff. IAPP staff members are trained to elevate such issues immediately. Alternate methods of reporting issues include emailing IAPP President and CEO J. Trevor Hughes at, or contacting a member of the IAPP board of directors.

The IAPP reserves the right to rescind registration or attendance at any IAPP event, at any time, for violations of this policy.

Privacy notice: We understand you are aware of and care about your own personal privacy interests, and we take that seriously. This privacy notice describes the IAPP’s policies and practices regarding its collection and use of your personal data and sets forth your privacy rights. We acknowledge that information privacy is an ongoing responsibility, and so we will, from time to time, update this privacy notice as we undertake new personal data practices or adopt new privacy policies. If you have questions or concerns, please contact

Tax deductibility: Training expenses, including your registration fee, travel, lodging and meals, may be tax deductible if they are for maintaining or improving your professional skills. Consult your tax advisor. The IAPP federal tax ID is 23-3048008.

Dress code: Wear whatever makes you comfortable, but you cannot go wrong with business casual. It would also be wise to dress in layers so that you will be comfortable in heavily air-conditioned session rooms.

Photography/video: Please be aware that the IAPP will be taking photographs and video in public areas of the conference (session rooms, exhibit hall, etc.). We may use such media in marketing materials, educational products and publications. Your image and the sound of your voice may be recorded. If you are identified during the recording, or identify yourself by name, that information may be included in our materials. Recordings may be edited, copied, exhibited, published or distributed.

Please note: The views and opinions expressed in sessions are those of the speakers and do not necessarily reflect the positions of the IAPP.
