With a track record of hosting Asia’s most prominent events, Singapore continues to deliver innovative solutions for the transfer of knowledge, ideas and connections to drive new possibilities for the Business Travel and Meetings, Incentives, Conventions and Exhibitions (BTMICE) sector in Singapore.

Singapore is a modern metropolis and business gateway offering global organisations access to the fast-evolving Asian region and beyond. It has all the basics of a good host: a pro-business environment, world-class facilities and infrastructure, professional services, award winning unique event venues and cool attractions, all in a rich and unique Asian setting like nowhere else. It is no wonder that Singapore has hosted many world-class events and is consistently voted as a top MICE destination in the world.

In addition, Singapore is a major air, sea and telecommunications hub in Asia. From its strategic position, it offers market access to 4 billion people within a 7-hour flight radius. With flights from 400 cities in 100 countries and territories, Singapore is easily accessible from anywhere around the world, making it an ideal place for your business event.

Singapore MICE Advantage Programme (SMAP)
The Changi Airport Group, Singapore Airlines Limited and SECB have leveraged their combined experience in the meetings industry to develop the Singapore MICE Advantage Programme (SMAP). This programme offers enhanced meeting experiences for event organisers and overseas MICE visitors and is intended to complement the Business Events in Singapore (BEiS) incentive scheme currently offered by SECB.

With this programme, event organisers can look forward to cost savings and smoother event planning and operations. MICE delegates travelling to Singapore to attend SMAP-supported events can also enjoy exclusive airline and airport benefits.
