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

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
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
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
