The Singapore Tourism Board (STB) has announced the appointment of SingEx Venues (SingEx) as the operator for the Singapore Expo Convention & Exhibition Centre (Singapore Expo) for up to 10 years starting January 2019.
As the incumbent operator SingExâ€™s management contract is due to expire at the end of 2018, a Request for Proposal (RFP) was published on the government procurement portal, GeBIZ, in December 2017.
STB received three submissions at the close of the RFP. All three proposals were evaluated on criteria such as business strategy, track record and ability to market and operate the Singapore Expo as a leading business events venue.
According to an STB statement, the winning proposal demonstrated “a strong understanding of Singaporeâ€™s MICE industry and outlined a comprehensive plan to grow the MICE segment in relation to Singapore Expo”.
