This Little Red Dot turns 50 this year! Since 1965, Singapore has evolved from a humble fishing village into a vibrant, multi-cultural and cosmopolitan gem.
On the MICE front, while still young as a nation, Singapore has successfully established itself as an award-winning business events destination and is best known for being ICCA's Top Convention City. With a strong knowledge economy, pro-business environment, and strategic position as a gateway to Asia and the world, Singapore is an ideal place in Asia to hold a business event with ease, and with peace of mind. Singapore is home to more than 7,000 multi-national corporations and has a wide variety and quality of venues to suit any planner's needs!
Singapore has undergone significant transformations in recent years with the launch of two integrated resorts, the opening of Gardens by the Bay, and having hosted the first F1 night race! Many would describe Singapore as a business destination with excellent infrastructure and high-level efficiency; but not many may as familiar with Singapore's culture, heritage and local experiences.
