HFE 2023 will be held at EHL Campus (Singapore). The campus is set in a century-old mansion, the former Kinloss House, that has been completely restored to enhance its classic beauty with contemporary facilities. Built in the late 1800s, it was once a boarding school for the children of British soldiers and has more recently served as an executive training centre for an international company.
 
The campus is located near the Tanglin area close to the Singapore Botanic Gardens, and just a 15-minute walk from Orchard Road.
