Finalists for Singapore Tourism Awards 2022 Unveiled
Singapore, 13 May 2022–The Singapore Tourism Board (STB) is pleased to announce today the 81 finalists for the Experience Excellence, Enterprise Excellence, Customer Service and Special Awards categories of the Singapore Tourism Awards 2022, Singapore’s most prestigious awards for the tourism sector.
To be held on 24 May 2022, the Singapore Tourism Awards celebrates the extraordinary resilience, innovation and dedication shown by our tourism stakeholders and businesses, as we prepare to welcome more visitors back to Singapore. Recipients in the above categories will be recognised at an in-person awards ceremony at Shangri-La Hotel. Recipients of the Special Recognition awards will also be unveiled at the event, which will be graced by Mr. Alvin Tan, Minister of State for Trade and Industry, and Culture, Community and Youth.
Many of the nominees have shown resilience by adapting their products and business models. New entrants to the list include:
- SkyHelix Sentosa and Royal Albatross under the Outstanding Attractions Experience category for their unique tourism offerings. Royal Albatross for example, developed a brand new dog cruise – the first in the region, as part of its strategy to pivot towards the domestic leisure market.
- PARKROYAL COLLECTION Marina Bay, Singapore, The Barracks Hotel Sentosa and The Clan Hotel Singapore under the Outstanding Hotel Experience category for creating new staycation experiences that appeal to different customer segments.
- Arbora Hilltop Garden & Bistro, The Brewerkz Company, and Yardbird Southern Table and Bar, in the Outstanding Casual Dining Experience category, for showcasing innovation in meeting evolving customer needs. Arbora for example, launched special menus and organised monthly yoga sessions in response to a spike in visitors to Mount Faber Park and increased demand for outdoor wellness activities during the pandemic; while Brewerkz introduced several unique dining experiences such as an Airbnb Experiences Brewery Tour and a Tour De Beer Challenge – a self-guided cycling event timed with the release of a cycling-themed beer.
- “Let’s Connect” by ENGIE South East Asia and “PCMA Convening Leaders 2021” by the Professional Convention Management Association, in the Outstanding Business Event category for successfully pivoting their events to hybrid formats.
Mr Terrence Voon, Director, Communications & Marketing Capability, STB said, “As we emerge from the pandemic and prepare to welcome more visitors, the Singapore Tourism Awards plays a key role in recognising those who have delivered innovative and impactful experiences. The quality of the nominations we received this year reflects the resilience and ingenuity of our tourism sector, and we hope it will inspire others as we gear up to recapture demand.”
