September 23, 2013

The Suntec Singapore Convention and Exhibition Centre reported some 650,000 visitors have attended a total of 96 events at the venue since its reopening in June 2013. Around 60% to 70% of those events were return bookings during the three month period.

According to Suntec’s management, the occupancy rate for October has already reached close to 80% with major trade shows such as IT event Cloud Expo Asia also lined up for this November. The venue highlighted its target to attract more medical and IT industry-related events.

Arun Madhok, CEO of Suntec Singapore, was quoted saying, “Medical events are a growing market, and they typically comprise the hybrid of a conference and an exhibition, which Suntec Singapore can cater to very well with its new offering of space convertibility.”

Earlier last week, Suntec soft opened its Suntec City Phase 1 property, which houses more than 120 retail stores and F&B outlets.
