Programme Schedule

Below you will find Sched, our interactive online program for Placemaker Week ASEAN that allows registrants to plan out what they’d like to do during the event. In order to properly interact with Sched, you need to have registered for the full event. Otherwise it functions as a simple program on this page for you to view.

You can now start adding events/sessions to your personal schedule if you wish to. Please note: For sessions such as Place Games and workshops that display limited capacities, you must add those to your schedule to be able to attend. For all sessions that do not display limited capacities, you do not have to add them to attend.

Feel free to toggle between different views on the Schedule tab for the one that suits you. For a simplified overview of the entire week, click here.

For any questions about our program, please email us at
