months, when enterprises in Singapore’s MICE sector conceptualised and
reimagined what a protected event could appear like.”

Thinking over and above safety actions, Singapore MICE organisers, such as WiT, have additional boldly started to experiment with new event formats that transcend actual physical location areas – precisely virtual-hybrid business occasions.

Every event will function a highest of 50 onsite attendees, in addition to roughly one,000 attendees taking part almost throughout the two occasions.
