Why organize a meeting or conference in Singapore?
Look no further than Singapore meeting venues to run your next corporate event. As a result of a stable political system and reliable and predictable legal environment, many multinational corporations (MNCs) have chosen to establish their regional headquarters here. The proximity to regional markets such as Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand has made Singapore into a key hub for financing services, manufactured goods trading and shipping. Finally, the city-state features the best airport in Asia with direct flights to hundreds of destinations, which makes it easy to access and a convenient meeting point.
Sitting atop of a skyscraper overlooking the amazing skyline, with Indonesian islands on the horizon to the south and the lights of Johor Bahru (Malaysia) being visible to the North, is not uncommon at Singapore meeting venues. A wide range of venues are available from large convention centers for trade fairs, to ballrooms at hotels for banquets and receptions to more quaint rooftop bars, venues in a natural or garden setting or even with a colonial flavor.
English is the official language in the “Lion City,” which makes organizing and planning an event easier. Furthermore, a dense MRT (Mass Transit System) network, and availability of taxi and limousine services, as well as good traffic conditions, make moving around as well getting from and to the airport effortless. These factors have made Singapore meeting venues a top choice for Meetings, incentive travel, conventions and exhibitions (MICE) as well as tourism – indeed, 15 million tourist arrivals were expected in 2015.
