Organised by the NTUC and Smart Nation & Digital Government Office, this year's Smart Nation and U is a free family event held at Downtown East on the 30th of November and the 1st of December, from 9 am to 6 pm. The event is meant to encourage positive attitudes toward technology and dispel any fears toward it, by showing how technology transforms and enables how Singaporeans live, work, and play in a fun and easily understood manner.
There will be more than 80 different booths featuring a myriad of tech products and initiatives from companies, institutes of higher learning and the government, including showcases from several of our GeoTechs.

- Learn more about Whatshalal’s Halal Scanner and how it collects information to add value to the Halal supply chain at their booth, where the first public reveal of their Assurance and Traceability Management System (ATeMS) will be held, intended to help halal businesses or businesses interested in going Halal.
- Children can win prizes from beating Schoolber’s Mifold Seat Belt Challenge by putting on a mifold seat in less than thirty seconds.
