Marina Bay Sands signs 30 deals for events at Expo & Convention Centre

Marina Bay Sands on Monday said it has signed over 30 deals for premier events at its new Expo and Convention Centre.

This is expected to attract over 150,000 attendees to the integrated resort when it opens next year.

Marina Bay Sands said it has sealed events from a wide range of industries, from the engineering and legal sector to life sciences and renewable energy.

Some events are marking their return to Singapore after many years.

For example, the Inter-Pacific Bar Association 2010 Conference will see top lawyers from the region converging in Singapore in May for the first time since 1994.

With the theme of ‘Climate Change’, the prestigious event counts former US Vice President and environment champion Al Gore as its keynote speaker.

Other returning events include the 2010 UFI Congress which will come back to Singapore after a 15-year absence.

New shows that will debut at Marina Bay Sands include the Industrial Fabrics Association International Expo Asia 2011 trade show – the first major textile event catered to the Asian audience.

In addition, the Marina Bay Sands team is working on more than 100 additional prospects for meetings, incentives and conventions over the next four years.
