Dear Singapore Industry Partners,

PARTICIPATION IN THE LEISURE TRADE ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS IN SINGAPORE ON 28 February 2019

1. Visitor arrivals from Europe has seen an increase year-on-year, with a 6.4% increase in 2017. Growth is set to continue, especially as we see more cruise arrivals.

2. Holidays remain an important lifestyle option for consumers in Europe, despite economic and political instability. Europeans are constantly researching for value for money destinations and with the strong Euro, consumers are looking further afield for holidays. This is a great opportunity for Singapore to ride on, however, Europeans are spoilt for choice for holiday destinations. It is therefore critical that the European travel trade is updated with the latest offerings and experiences in Singapore in order for us to increase mindshare and affinity of Singapore as an attractive must-visit destination with enriching experiences.

3. We are delighted to inform you of the return of the Leisure Trade Engagement Sessions (TES), which this year, will be held in Singapore on 28 February 2019 at ParkRoyal on Pickering Hotel. The TES will be attended by European travel trade from France, Germany, Italy, Russia, Scandinavia (Denmark & Sweden), Switzerland and UK. The attendees will be a mix of decision-making levels and frontline agents.

4. We would like to invite you to join us for the Trade Engagement Sessions with the key objectives of:
 
a) Heightening and strengthening the awareness of Singapore as a compelling leisure destination, by encouraging the trade to update their product itineraries with the latest products and offerings available in Singapore and to increase the length of stay in Singapore​

b) Heightening and strengthening the awareness of south-east Asian cruises, using Singapore as the hub and increase pre/post stays in Singapore

c) Providing Singapore Industry Partners' networking opportunities for business opportunities 


5. There is no participation fee to join the Trade Engagement Sessions. However, we would request a limit of maximum two (2) representatives per company.

6.  Each Singapore Industry Partner will be given a table to conduct one-to-one meetings and product updates.
