FutureME is designed as a platform for discussions of innovations and disruptive trends that are transforming the world around us - the way we work, live and play in future. This is the first time ever such an event is being held in Singapore. It offers a series of talks, workshops and showcases up-and-coming technologies.

This 3-day event is divided into three segments: FutureWork (25 March), FutureLive (26 March), and FuturePlay (27 March).
