Next, DMG Events, Enterprise Singapore and STB have signed an MoU to anchor Gastech 2023 in Singapore.

It will be attended by energy industry thought leaders, policymakers and industrial energy decision-makers, who will discuss trends, opportunities and pertinent challenges faced by the global energy market.
Yap Chin Siang, STB’s deputy chief executive, said: â€śAs Singapore journeys towards Covid-resilience, we will continue to facilitate the safe and gradual resumption of MICE events. The new partnerships are a testament to our solid economic fundamentals and reflect Singaporeâ€™s strong standing as a Global-Asia Node for MICE and business. While the pandemic has changed the way we work and travel, Singapore remains committed to strengthening existing partnerships while forging new ones.â€ť
