Singapore Expo to beef up services, facilities

THE Singapore Expo Convention and Exhibition Centre is introducing new services and facilities to boost efficiency and attract bigger groups of visitors.

 

One initiative is a porter service – Porter Xpress – at the Expo’s business centre. The service will transport luggage to the airport from hotels or the Expo for business executives and meetings, incentive travel, conventions and exhibitions (MICE) participants with late flights.

 

Additionally, in conjunction with media partner At-life, advertisements will be broadcast on LCD TV screens at the Expo, some food outlets and ferry terminals. The screens will allow organisers to publicise events to more than two million viewers monthly.

 

Free Wi-Fi is available at selected areas of the Expo, with wireless connectivity for 3.5G mobile phones. But 3.5G wireless broadband service users will have to buy a SIM card. Four digital information kiosks will also be installed at the Expo.

 

In June, JTC Corporation launched a concept and price tender for the development of a 4.7 hectare integrated business park project with retail and hotel components at Changi Business Park, which is near the Expo.

 

The hotel will make accommodation more convenient for overseas exhibitors and visitors attending events.

 

Proposals for the tender have to be in by Aug 19. According to the tender document, bidders may opt for either a term of ’30 years with an option for a further term of 30 years’, or 60 years.
