"I must say that the Singapore Tourism Board delivers a superior level of partnership when considering bringing an event to their locale. One that would be considered a 'Circle of Excellence' and should be a model for others to replicate. They are educated, knowledgeable and were also well versed in IEEE and connected to our localized volunteer community. They delivered excellence during my site visit, showcasing the right venues for my needs, infusing a taste of the culture, and in helping me connect and see what makes Singapore such an ideal location for our events. The bureau has such a rich and deep partnership within all facets of the city's infrastructure and I cannot thank the team enough and for solidifying our decision to choose Singapore for our event."

“Singapore’s excellent infrastructure, world class venues, well-developed network of suppliers and supporting associations, and strong government support have contributed to its popularity as a choice MICE destination in the region. Singapore’s long established reputation as the gateway for business in the region also provides us with the opportunity to recruit some of the best talents in the MICE industry, for our business. It is for those reasons that Singapore has been the headquarters for Koelnmesse’s operations in the Asia-Pacific over the last 10 years, providing a sound foundation for many of our flagship shows like IDEM Singapore to grow.” - Michael Dreyer, Vice President, Asia Pacific, Koelnmesse Pte Ltd

On a more personal note, what I really enjoy doing in Singapore is to sit by the Marina Bay front in the evening, sipping cold beer, while enjoying the magical nighttime skyline. You should come and experience this for yourself!” - Professor Lee Yuan Kuan from Singapore – President of the International Union for Microbiology Sciences (IUMS) and Winner of the Best Business Event Champion Award at the 2014 Singapore Experience Awards.
