Singapore has retained its position as the leading meeting city and country in the world according to the Union of International Associations (UIA) 2012 Global Rankings.

singapore2Named Top International Meeting Country for the second year running and Top International Meeting City for the sixth consecutive year, Singapore has once again reinforced its value proposition as a choice international meeting destination.

Singapore’s international appeal, strategic location and access to key Asian markets provide a strong impetus for organisers to move or locate their events in Singapore. In 2012, 952 of the meetings hosted in Singapore – almost ten per cent of UIA’s database – met the stipulated qualifying criteria. This includes meetings which are organised or sponsored by international organisations or of significant international character.
