The SEASC was carried out very conducive and the enthusiasm of the participants was very high. Although the capacity of the building is used for 1000 people, while the participants are only around 400 people, it does not make this event seem quiet. Especially in parallel technical sessions, which at the conference were generally quiet, but at this event remained crowded. The least number of participants who filled in a parallel room with a capacity of 80 was around 30 people, with the highest number of 80 people.
In general, the implementation of this congress as congress in general. But slightly different is at this congress there is a special event for young professionals (Young Professional Day) to share, increased confidence, and build relationships. This event marked the beginning to establish the ASEAN Community Young Surveyors Network (YASN).
Neat, simple but not eliminate the impression of luxury, as well as effective in executing activities. In each session.
