Aloysius Arlando, Chief Executive Officer of SingEx Venues, the management company of Singapore EXPO and MAX Atria says, "We are honoured to host these key industry events, some of which are being held here for the very first time. The robust line up of business events represents our ability to reach into the key verticals that are aligned with Singapore's vision of becoming a knowledge-based economy, while concurrently generating significant spin-offs for the tourism and MICE industries. This year is also more meaningful as the nation celebrates her 50th birthday, and we hope our international guests will enjoy the vibrant and festive atmosphere throughout Singapore during their events."
