Resorts World Sentosa's (RWS) MICE segment has made a splashy comeback since the reopening of international borders.

For the second half of 2022, the integrated resort has already confirmed over 50 conferences and corporate meetings, which are expected to bring a total of more than 100,000 international and local visitors.

These include the World Ocean Summit Asia Pacific, the Business Network International (BNI) Global Convention, 25th International Conference on Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention, Singapore Week of Innovation and Technology (SWITCH), as well as Singapore International Bunkering Conference and Exhibition (SIBCON).

About one-third of these events are large-scale ones, which include annual functions by the Singapore Institute of Architects, Association of Singapore Marine Industries, Singapore International Chamber of Commerce and USANA Health Sciences.

Meanwhile, in a bid to solidify its aim to be a sustainable tourism global leader, RWS has partnered with TEDxSingapore to present a series of six co-created events focusing on sustainability, innovation, marine science and conservation, marine biodiversity, marine exploration, and climate action.

RWS achieved a world-first when it became the first destination to meet both the Global Sustainable Tourism Council’s Destination Criteria and Industry Criteria for Hotels. As the resort ushers in a new wave of sustainable tourism in the next decade, RWS continues to align its progress with the STB and Sentosa Development Corporation’s long-term sustainability plans.

Edward Chew, RWS senior vice president, sales & marketing said: “Occupying a distinguished position in the MICE industry with a strong distinctive competitive edge, RWS is a leading player known for its capability in integrating business and leisure into an exciting and unique proposition that offers a total experience all under one roof."

"Our collaborations with our valued clients such as TEDxSingapore, Economist Impact for World Ocean Summit and Enterprise Singapore for SWITCH, affirms the resort’s world-class offerings and its exemplary ‘bleisure’ environment," he added.
