Singapore's extensive global trade and communications networks provide market access and trade flows to Asia Pacific and the world. Singapore is also the home base of thought-leadership and innovation with unique strengths in knowledge-based and knowledge-driven industries such as banking & finance, biomedical sciences, energy, ICT & media, energy and environment, as well as transport & security. Singapore has also successfully grown its R&D base, drawing top scientific and creative talent and nurtured R&D collaborations between the public sector and private enterprise. The presence of more than 7,000 multinational companies in Singapore, together with a government supportive of nurturing businesses, further contributes to a dynamic business environment.
Singapore’s economic growth has been built on the back of several key industries where we have the capability and knowledge. SECB works with the industry to bring together complementary programmes that will facilitate business growth within the key industry clusters of urban solutions, design, media & digital content, travel, healthcare & biomedical, education and sports.
Successful flagship events in Singapore such as The International Furniture Fair Singapore, CommunicAsia & BroadcastAsia, Singapore Airshow, Food and Hotel Asia, ITB Asia and World Cities Summit continue to serve as a strong base for complementary events that are co-located in events clusters to drive better synergies between the events. In this way, delegates can also optimise their business trips, maximise opportunities across the different events, and expand their networks — certainly a boon for today’s time-strapped business travellers.
Singapore also offers an excellent range of state-of-the-art convention centres, exhibition halls, and meeting venues that suit a variety of needs and budgets. These venues not only offer first-rate conference and meeting facilities, but also the convenience of a wide range of accommodation, food, shopping, entertainment, and other lifestyle options in close proximity.
