Suntec City, a major exhibition venue in Singapore
The MICE – Meetings, Incentives, Conferences & Exhibitions – industry is getting a boost in Singapore. Authorities have just announced that from 1 October 2020, events of up to 250 participants can be held. This is a five-fold increase from the present maximum of 50 people. Covid has hit the aviation, hospitality, tourism and exhibition industries particularly hard. Thousands of jobs are in the balance. Authorities have also said that if proved to be successful, the 250 figure for maximum participants may go up even higher.
