Singapore is among the top five convention cities globally, and the only Asian city alongside Vienna, Barcelona, Paris and Berlin. Out of the estimated 13.2 million travellers to Singapore in 2012, 24% of them are business visitors.
The underlying reason of this trend could be the government support for the MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conventions and Exhibitions) industry, which has expanded year-on-year at over 46%.
