Mix business with leisure

Work hard and play hard. Get creative with your event itinerary and include some unique leisure experiences to enhance your event attendee's visit to Singapore.

Take a walk on the wild side at the Night Safari, go on a sunset cruise or take a hike through the rainforest canopy – the city has diverse leisure offerings to complement your business activities, all within a compact city and easily accessible by time-hungry business travellers. 

Explore itinerary ideas.


Go green

As we grow increasingly conscious about our impact on the environment, event organisers are encouraged to adopt eco-friendly practices and consider green venues which have a track record of sustainable practices. Green venues in Singapore can be identified via the BCA Green Mark symbol. A green event enhances your brand's reputation and commitment to sustainability.

Search for eco-friendly venues and initiatives.


Delight visitors with unconventional venues

Singapore has an excellent range of state-of-the-art convention centres, exhibition halls and meeting venues – ranging from art museums and lush gardens, to scenic rooftops and sunny beachfront locations. Make a lasting impression by hosting your event at one of these unconventional event venues.

Tap on a network of experienced vendors

A well-established MICE ecosystem in Singapore means that a host of event vendors are available to cater to your every event planning need. Professional event planners, event technology companies, logistics companies, translators and other suppliers are able to bring a wealth of expertise and experience to the table and can make strong contributions to the quality and execution of your event.
