Navigating around Sime
The sessions during the event tend to overlap so it is advised for attendees to pre-plan which sessions they would like to attend.
The talks are also held in different parts of Epicenter so attendees will also have the chance to explore the different facilities of Epicenter. Attendees should go to their desired talks on time because some venues can only cater to a limited amount of people.
If a venue is full attendees can watch the session in the live streaming room.
These might seem confusing and overwhelming but there are multiple staff and ushers willing to help attendees with their questions.
Sime is a great event that would help people to learn more about different topics and industries. If you are an entrepreneur or a specialist in the digital field or anyone who would like to learn will definitely enjoy this event.
