After two years of virtual editions, M&C Asia Connections 2022, Northstar Travel Group's signature MICE event, is returning to an in-person format in Singapore with a strong showing expected from travel suppliers across the region.

Taking place from 23-27 August 2022, the week-long business exchange will connect buyers and sellers at an in-person networking event from 23-24 August at Marina Bay Sands and conclude with a post-event fam trip on 25-27 August.

This invitation-only event leverages Northstar Travel Group’s global MICE database as well as the industry's most reputable brands to bring together pre-qualified international planners from corporations, associations, incentive houses and independent planning companies based in North America, Europe and Asia.

Selected buyers will have the opportunity to participate in pre-scheduled one-to-one meetings with Asian travel suppliers at MCAC, as well as experiential networking activities, educational sessions, product presentations, and a post-event fam.

“We are pleased to present MCAC at a time when MICE planners are intensifying their efforts to resume meetings and incentive travel programmes,” said David Blansfield, executive vice president and group publisher, Northstar Travel Group. “Since its inception, MCAC has served as the gathering place for the Asian meetings community to network, connect and ink deals. The return of MCAC as an in-person event is testament to the recovery of the business events sector in Asia Pacific.”

This year’s event features a strong showing from the region’s convention & visitor bureaus, hotels and event venues. These include Seoul Tourism Organization, Japan National Tourism Organization, Singapore Tourism Board, Philippines Tourism Promotions Board, Melia Bali, Hyatt Regency Bangkok Sukhumvit, Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group, Pan Pacific Hotels Group and Royal Caribbean International, among others.

For buyers and sellers alike, being in the same space allows for important conversations and meaningful connections face to face, and to discover and learn new things that will shape the industry development looking ahead.”

Chua added: “Northstar Travel Group is also pleased to welcome Marina Bay Sands as our valued hotel and venue partner in hosting MCAC. As an award-winning venue that is recognised for its hospitality standards and expertise in hosting world-class exhibitions and conferences, Marina Bay Sands will set the bar for a memorable experience at MCAC.”
