Meet in Singapore 1995 11.1.1995
Formed in 1974, the Singapore Convention Bureau began the promotion of Singapore as a convention destination. A campaign was initiated in August 1992 to re-position Singapore at a higher plane of sophistication in terms of facilities and expertise.
The Meet in Singapore 1995 campaign was launched to promote 21 years of infrastructure development and professionalism and to raise awareness of Singapore as a convention destination.
1995 would also symbolise the coming of age of the convention industry and the opening of Singapore International Convention & Exhibition Centre at Suntec City would cap the completion of a series of facilities that marked various milestones of the development of the industry.
