Constellar has announced that Chua Wee Phong, chief executive (markets), will be stepping into the role of chief executive (venues) with effect from July 1, 2022.
Chua has been chief executive (markets) at Constellar leading the exhibitions arm of the business since February 2021.
His new appointment comes at a time when event activity in Singapore is off to a strong restart. At the Singapore Expo, confirmed venue bookings for 2H2022 are now at 60 per cent of pre-Covid levels in 2019. As such, Chua has been tasked with evolving the venue’s business, as well as accelerating the sustainability roadmap for Singapore Expo to become carbon-neutral by 2024.
Constellar Holdings’ CEO Jean-François Quentin will continue to oversee all matters related to its group of companies. Having covered the role of chief executive (venues) since October 1, 2021, he will now cover the role of chief executive (markets) with a greater focus on the development of Constellar’s events business in Asia, as well as expanding Constellar’s presence in the global marketplace.
