Sentosa pushes alternative MICE credentials

Named the Best Singapore Destination in 2017, Sentosa is described as being the perfect island-in-the-city for holidaymakers and business travellers.

The Sentosa Development Corporation says more than 19 million Singaporeans and tourists are attracted to Sentosa annually, with more than 30 themed attractions, 200 food and beverage and retail outlets, sandy beaches, 15 hotels with more than 3,000 rooms, two 18-hole golf courses and more. Swee Kuan Quek, CEO of the Sentosa Development Corporation, explains: “Sentosa’s strategic location, accessibility and array of unique offerings make it the perfect one-stop solutions provider for unconventional MICE experiences. The USA- DPRK Singapore Summit, held in Sentosa in June 2018, further showcased Sentosa’s excellent ‘turnkey’ capabilities in hosting high-stature events at short notice.”

Looking at the MICE offering, Quek says, “At Sentosa, corporate meetings go beyond the regular conference room and hall, with customised teambuilding activities, such as sand or sky dining and exclusive beach parties complete with fireworks and spa treatments among the novel experiences that can be curated.”
