Top reasons for hosting events in Singapore
We are known for many identities, of which, “Food Paradise” is commonly heard of. Being known as a tiny island on the map, Singapore has certainly built a name for herself over the last few decades. Apart from being a country that is known for food, Singapore is also recognized for being one of the top choices as events destination. From lifestyle to business events, many event organizers are laying eyes on our garden city to hold their events.
With spacious convention halls such as Suntec City and The Marina Bay Sands, it is no surprise to hear international events and business conventions being held locally. Due to its central location, the convention halls are easily accessible and of close proximity to the integrated resort, along with many other 5-star hotels around the vicinity. This makes accommodation no less of a problem for guests. Outdoor spaces, such as Gardens by the Bay are ideal spots for concerts and gigs as it accommodates a standing capacity of approximately 30,000 people. The latest event that was hosted here was the “I Am Hardwell” event by world famous DJ Hardwell, who landed in Singapore as one of his stops for his world tour.
Strong Social-Cultural Impact
As the influence of western culture is vast and pervasive, it is no surprise to see Singaporeans enjoying social and lifestyle events such as beer and food festival. The strong social-cultural impact evident in the country makes event holders more keen on holding their events here as responses are more often and expected to be positive.
Ease in Mixing Business with Pleasure
Besides being voted as one of the top 10 business hubs, businessmen do feel exoticism with a familiar comfort. It is highly common to be holding meetings with clients at the rooftop bar of Marina Bay Sands, overlooking the nighttime skyline while sipping an ice cold beer. This level of comfort could very well be one of our country’s features for both business event organizers and businessmen to pick Singapore as an ideal destination to host events.
Having hosted many events the past few years, Singapore has definitely built a reliable reputation as a country. Being voted as the top 5 international meeting countries, Singapore shares the same ranking as power players such as Belgium. It is no surprise to see series of popular events that have been running for a few years in this garden city.
Here are some example of events hosted in Singapore:
