Global Rankings by the International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA) have ranked Singapore as one of the Top Five Convention Cities alongside Vienna, Barcelona, Paris and Berlin. This is the ninth consecutive time that Singapore has figured as Asia’s Top Convention City.

Martin Sirk, Chief Executive Officer, ICCA said, “Singapore has been proactively targeting this sector as part of a clear strategy for many years, and was probably the first destination in the world to so closely align this meetings strategy with the economic development goals of the country.”

Since the ICCA Global Rankings focuses on meetings that rotate regularly between at least three countries, Singapore can be seen as a destination for not only new but also returning events. According to this qualifying criterion, 136 rotating events were held in Singapore in 2010, representing more than 14 per cent growth over the events that qualified in 2009.

Melissa Ow, Assistant Chief Executive, Industry Development (II) Group, Singapore Tourism Board (STB) stated, “The ICCA Global Rankings have always been a well regarded industry indicator. Our success is in no small part due to our sound business fundamentals, ease of doing business and the relentless commitment of our MICE industry partners. We also have developments coming up such as the lush new Gardens by the Bay, the International Cruise Terminal and the world’s first River Safari.”
