From its cast of culinary celebrities to its recent winning of the prestigious Green Mark Platinum Award, there is plenty of buzz about Marina Bay Sands in the convention industry. As more meeting professionals explore growth opportunities in Southeast Asia, many of them are starting in Singapore at the integrated resort. Check out what some of your peers in meetings and trade shows have to say about the Marina Bay Sands difference.
Mastering The Challenges & Complexities Of A Massive Culinary Show
Every meeting planner has been forced to deal with the pressure of an overwhelmingly tight set-up schedule. At Marina Bay Sands, the team is no stranger to those pressures, either, and they’re well-prepared to deal with hard deadlines and tight turnarounds.
“Fantasia by Escriba 2014 was a world’s first and largest culinary entertainment show. It was a monumentally complex show to deliver plus we had an extremely challenging timeline to set up. The show would have been impossible to deliver without the thoroughly professional support we received from every Marina Bay Sands department involved. We look forward to putting our shows on at Marina Bay Sands again.”
— Lui Khang, Executive Director, Escriba Events Pte Ltd

Delivering All The Essential Services Under One Roof
Rather than outsource AV needs and deal with the challenges of working with multiple vendors, meeting planners love the one-stop shop at Marina Bay Sands.
“Marina Bay Sands is certainly the ideal location for BEX Asia/IGBC with its comprehensive one-stop event solutions and services, including meeting our technical needs, e.g. AV equipment. Without the strong support from the team, BEX Asia/ IGBC would not have achieved such great success.”
— Louise Chua, Business Development Director and Project Director, Reed Exhibitions

Meeting The Needs Of Every Type Of Attendee
Want to go shopping? Looking to relax by the pool? How about take in a Broadway production? Marina Bay Sands offers a diverse range of entertainment and attractions that can help every member of the audience enjoy their time in Singapore.
“With the anticipated number of visitors coming from all over Asia for MAISON&OBJET ASIA 2015, Marina Bay Sands is the perfect venue to accommodate all the needs and requirement of many different sectors of the design community, both buyers and exhibitors because of its various and diverse offerings.”
— Lyndon Neri, Founder of Neri & Hu Design Research Office

Reaching New Levels Of Sustainability Success
Every meeting wants to have a big impact on attendees, but the impact on the environment should be as small as possible. Marina Bay Sands is committed to using less energy and producing less waste with the SANDS ECO360° Meetings Programme.
“The second Responsible Business Forum on Sustainable Development was recognized as one of the world’s greenest and most sustainably-produced events in 2013, largely due to the industry leading commitment of our host venue and sustainability partner, Marina Bay Sands. For our latest event in 2014, Marina Bay Sands helped us to raise the sustainability bar even higher in many ways including real-time energy use displayed throughout the venue, a sustainable seafood meal for our dinner and further reduced food waste.”
— Tony Gourlay, Chief Executive of Global Initiatives Responsible Business Forum on Sustainable Development
Handling Last-Minute Challenges With Ease
No matter what planning goes into an event, unexpected, last-minute issues can arise. At Marina Bay Sands, the team is ready for anything.
“I would like to highlight and personally express my heartfelt thanks to the Marina Bay Sands MICE team for going over and beyond to ensure the smooth delivery of the event. Working with multiple teams, chefs, AV and security to get everything running in sync is tough, and so was reacting to last minute requests and paying attention to the numerous rooming requirements. But Marina Bay Sands was able to execute everything seamlessly and professionally with clockwork precision.”
— Isaac Yeo (Mr), Operations Manager, Ezyhealth Conferences & Events Pte Ltd Gender Aesthetics Congress Asia
