5 reasons to host an event in Singapore

If you haven’t been to Singapore lately, now is the time to revisit this vibrant city and discover its endless possibilities as a business events destination.

Always changing and forever evolving, Singapore continues to attract business events groups, thanks to its world-class facilities, easy access and exciting calendar of events.

Now is the time to pay Singapore a visit and here’s why:

Travelling to Singapore has never been easier

Travelling to Singapore has never been more convenient for corporate groups. Singapore’s well renowned Changi Airport is one of the busiest and best connected in the world, handling over 100 airlines flying to some 400 cities. With daily flights available from Australia to Changi Airport, there are a range of options to suit corporate groups.

Once delegates arrive in Singapore, getting around the city is easy. They can hail a taxi on the street or catch one from the designated taxi stands around the city centre, or make use of Singapore’s extensive network of trains and buses. For a more private mode of transport, there are a number of private coach transfer suppliers on offer for corporate groups.

World-class facilities at every turn

Singapore’s event venues are world-class and ideal for hosting conferences, exhibitions and business events of all sizes.

Among the leading venues is the Changi Exhibition Centre, boasting 100,000 square metres of outdoor space and 40,000 square metres of indoor exhibition space, and Singapore EXPO, which is the largest purpose-built MICE venue in the country with up to 123,000 square metres of exhibition space and 12,000 square metres of additional meeting space.

Other venues include Sands Expo and Convention Centre located within the iconic Marina Bay Sands precinct, Resorts World Sentosa Convention Centre, situated on Sentosa Island, and Raffles City Convention Centre in the heart of the city.

Sustainable events are made simple

As Asia’s greenest city, Singapore sets the standard amongst other cities with the Sustainable Singapore Blueprint 2015, which outlines the country’s national vision and plans for a more liveable and sustainable Singapore.

The city’s business event venues and accommodation providers can help event planners organise eco-conscious and sustainable events to ensure Singapore retains its reputation as a green city. Explore some of Singapore’s leading eco-friendly hotels here.

There’s always something exciting happening

There’s no shortage of exciting events in Singapore, providing year-round entertainment and fun for leisure and business travellers alike.

Business events groups can make the most of Singapore’s huge line-up of events each year, from adrenaline-pumping sporting action to sumptuous culinary celebrations. Groups can plan their events to coincide with an event such as Singapore Food Festival, the Grand Prix or Singapore Night Festival, to give delegates a taste of this vibrant city.

Singapore is constantly evolving

If your groups visited Singapore previously, there are still plenty of new and unusual experiences to surprise and delight repeat visitors. A number of unique tours have recently been launched to appeal to visitors with varying interests.

For those who love all things vintage, Sideways by Singapore Sidecars is the perfect tour. The tour lets you explore Singapore from a whole new perspective, from a vintage Vespa sidecar. Thrill-seekers can opt for The Fear Factor Experience, an extreme tour by Monster Day Tours that lets you face and conquer your fears as a team.

Other new tours include the Made in Singapore Tour by Tribe, which uncovers the entrepreneurial spirit of the city, Wrap Me Up! by Crave!

Singapore continues to evolve, with new products, inspiring venues and experiences on offer, making it the perfect business events destination to visit time and time again.
