Borders may be closed, but life goes on, and Singapore has stayed true to its never-settling and can-do spirit.

Known for constantly evolving, the city continues to welcome new tourism offerings, such as the Dusit Thani Laguna Singapore, which opened its doors in December 2020.  With 198 rooms and suites, a 500 pax pillarless ballroom and three event lawns, there’s also access to two championship golf courses for post-conference activities.

Singapore has also recently launched a white paper: Reimagining Business Events – Through COVID-19 and Beyond.

Besides welcoming the new Dusit Thani Laguna Singapore in December 2020, other recent additions to the hotel scene include The Clan Hotel Singapore, the PARKROYAL COLLECTION Marina Bay (formerly the Marina Mandarin), and Oasia Resort Sentosa.

With Singapore’s reputation as a food paradise still firmly in place, the city has also seen a raft of new bars and restaurants opening their doors in the past twelve months, with a few more still to come.  Staying true to how the destination welcomes innovation, some are new dining experiences while others are located in unexpected venues.

Most recently, the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) has partnered with PCMA (Professional Convention Management Association) and UFI (The Global Association of the Exhibition Industry) to launch a white paper – the first collaboration between a destination and leading associations that represent the exhibitions, conventions and meetings industry.  Reimagining Business Events – Through COVID-19 and Beyond takes stock of how sectors within the industry have transformed in response to COIVID-19, and consolidates ideas from around the world to help business and event organisers rethink their offerings and operations.

Singapore continues to offer both non-financial and financial assistance to support group events, the latter through the BEiS (Business Events in Singapore) Scheme, and is committed to ensuring that all events take place safely and in accordance with the latest Safe Management Practices (SMM).
