Events with proven international and commercial appeal should apply for the Approved International Fair (AIF) scheme. If approved, SECB will accord these events the use of the prestigious AIF stamp of endorsement. It plays a big role in helping exhibitors and visitors identify trade fairs with strong access to global and Asian markets, and are easily identified by the AIF logo.

In addition, local companies participating in an AIF-endorsed exhibition are eligible for Double Tax Deduction (DTD). This allows approved companies to make deductions against their taxable income at twice the usual amount for eligible exhibition expenses.
