The integrated resort was named “Business Event Venue of the Year” and “Best Shopping Experience” at the prestigious Singapore Experience Awards 2015 organised by Singapore Tourism Board, repeating its feat in 2012 and 2013 for the MICE category.
It is the second consecutive win for The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands.
Its winning streak continued at the Singapore Sustainability Awards, an initiative of the Singapore Business Federation, where it was accorded the “Sustainable Business Awards” for its innovative and impactful green solutions.
Mr. Benny Zin, Chief Operating Officer and Vice President of Conventions and Exhibitions, Marina Bay Sands, said, “We are deeply honoured to win three big awards on one night. They are ringing endorsements of our successful integrated resort model and speak volumes of our passion, commitment and continued innovation to deliver the best results. Our track record in MICE speaks for itself – we have staged 63 new-to-Singapore trade shows since our opening and continue to be the venue of choice for organisers of prestigious international events. We are proud to play a part in helping Singapore’s quest to be the top MICE destination in this region.”
Over at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, the victory last evening followed a string of accolades in the world of retail. The mall had edged out regional rivals to take home Silver in the 2015 Asia Pacific Shopping Centre Awards ceremony, for its work in “Marketing Excellence, Public Relations & Events”, held in Taipei earlier this week. Organised by the International Council of Shopping Centres (ICSC) 2015 APAC, the Awards recognises the region’s most innovative shopping centres.
Mr. John Postle, Vice President of Retail, Marina Bay Sands, said, “The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands is exceptionally pleased to be the recipient of Best Shopping Experience 2015 by the Singapore Tourism Board for the second year in a row, as well as Silver award at the ICSC 2015 APAC. We are humbled by the positive results of our three-year long luxury retail remix, which saw the expansion of many world-leading brands within our mall in the form of stunning flagship stores. We will continue to build on this energy to innovate and create even more reasons for shoppers to visit Singapore in the many years to come.”
