2nd NetworkONE Reception

 

Following the success of the inaugural NetworkONE Reception, the second NetworkONE Reception took place on 20 September 2007. Held in The Arena at Clarke Quay, this Reception saw 180 students from NUS, NTU and SMU interact with 95 industry representatives from 40 maritime companies.

 

Organised as a part of the MaritimeONE initiative by the Association of Singapore Marine Industries (ASMI) in collaboration with the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA), the Singapore Maritime Foundation (SMF) and the Singapore Shipping Association (SSA), the Reception aimed to provide students an opportunity to find out more about the maritime industry.

 

This Reception also saw the launch of “maritime”, a pictorial magazine project under MaritimeONE. This magazine was produced by SSA with support from ASMI, MPA and SMF. It features interviews with 21 personalities in 20 interesting maritime careers, highlighting their achievements at work and at play.

 

Here are some of the pictures from the 2nd NetworkONE Reception:
