Corporate Travel in Singapore
When it comes to hosting meetings, incentives conventions and events for the corporate travel world, Singapore produces at every level – the reason it has been ranked as Asia’s top convention destination for years.
The International Congress and Convention Association has ranked Singapore as Asia’s top convention city for close to a decade and it has also maintained its current position as one of the top five convention cities in the world, alongside Barcelona, Berlin, Paris and Vienna.
Singapore offers some of the most integrated and advanced conference and meeting facilities in the world, a regional hub airport, excellent transportation systems, a diverse range of hotels, state-of-the-art technology and communications infrastructure, great shopping and leisure options and a welcoming, well educated and multilingual populace.
It is also home to numerous convention and exhibition centres such as the Sands Expo and Convention Center, Suntec Singapore International Convention and Exhibition Center, and the Singapore Expo.
The other exciting facets of this dynamic island nation include an exciting blend of old and new, East and West, traditional and modern, all set amid a cosmopolitan multicultural milieu.
Singapore is the third most wired nation in the world, hence super fast Internet and teleconferencing services are available in virtually every hotel and meeting venue.
These positive attributes have attracted scores of global corporations to MICE events and with ongoing and planned large-scale tourism and infrastructure development projects, the island’s MICE sector is getting bigger and bigger.
Located in a highly strategic regional trade point in the Singapore Strait that is connected with the Strait of Malacca in the west and the South China Sea in the east, Singapore has built on its global trading status.
In our modern era, the tall-mast merchant ships of the past have been replaced by towering office blocks that are home to over 7,000 multi-national corporations, financial institutions and trading firms.
Therefore, Singapore has cemented its reputation as an exchange capital where talent, technology and ideas converge to create synergistic value for both business events and visitors.
Innovation and information that powers growth is at the forefront of Singapore’s economy and it has developed a global reputation as a country where people converge and ideas and information are generated and exchanged.
Just as holidaymakers have a special attachment to certain destinations, executives and business leaders also develop a connection to places where innovative ideas were first exchanged, hence the high level of repeat MICE business in the island state.
In recent years, Singapore has enhanced its global reputation as a “must-visit” destination for the corporate travel world through several breathtaking transformations on its product landscape. For example, the integrated resorts of Marina Bay Sands and Resorts World Sentosa offer unique and exciting facilities.
Apart from corporate meetings, training sessions and trade exhibitions, Singapore’s excellent tourism infrastructure and attractions offer a wealth of incentive options.
Options include group visits to the night safari, or exploration of the different cultures of the multi-racial city centre through excursions around the vibrant ethnic areas of China Town, Little India and Kampong Glam.
Another opportunity is dragon boat racing on the Kallang River – an exciting event that builds team spirit and healthy competition among delegates.
Team building events can also be held on Sentosa Island, an idyllic resort location incredibly close to Singapore’s central business district.
Incentive packages can also include Las Vegas-style gaming, performances in state-of-the-art theatres, a visit to Universal Studios, or an elaborate colonial themed dinner at the legendary Raffles Hotel.
New city and resort-based hotels, restaurants, clubs and special venues have opened recently to add an even greater buzz to Singapore’s leisure sector.
And that is not all… the Lion City is poised to welcome two great new attractions in 2012: Gardens By The Bay; and Singapore River Safari – two attractions that promise to add even more appeal to Singapore’s reputation as a conference and incentive destination.
