Asia’s robust economic growth has seen Singapore’s Business Travel and Meetings, Incentive Travel, Conventions and Exhibitions (MICE) industry continuing to thrive.

In 2013, Singapore hosted 3.5 million business visitors, an increase of 3 per cent from the same period in 2012. These visitors spent an estimated S$5.5 billion (excluding sightseeing, entertainment and gaming expenditure).

Singapore continues to establish thought-leadership through new compelling content in first-in-Asia events and first-in-Singapore events in 2013, such as Annual Conference of the International Association for Philosophy and Literature, World Pulses Convention and Maison & Objet Asia.

In total, 12 World Congresses and several key meetings were held on the island-city in 2013, including the World Library and Information Congress IFLA, CFA Institute Annual Conference and Regional World Health Summit Asia. Meanwhile, existing events such as the International Furniture Fair Singapore and BroadcastAsia continue to experience strong growth in attendance and/or exhibition space, signalling Singapore’s continued popularity as a MICE destination.
