The three-day event at One Raffles Place featured courses pitched at the district's white-collar workers. Organised by the Singapore Workforce Development Agency, it was aimed at helping the public find out more about the 10,000 courses on which they can spend their $500 from the SkillsFuture Credit scheme. About 6,000 people visited the roadshow.
