ATTN AGENTS: Singapore Tourism celebrates explorers with new roadshow + campaign!

Calling all travel agents! Singapore Tourism is heading Down Under for its latest trade roadshow.

The ‘Find your Tribe’ Singapore Tourism Trade Roadshow 2019 is just around the corner, and it’s the perfect occasion for all travel professionals to brush-up on their knowledge of the Lion City.

Arriving on Australian shores in August, the roadshow and its theme – #PassionMadePossible – allows travel agents to explore their Singaporean passions by identifying with a tourism ‘tribe’.

Are you a foodie, socialiser, culture shaper or explorer?

In the lead-up to the event, Travel Weekly will be taking you through Singapore Tourism’s four travel ‘tribes’. We’ve already looked at foodies  and culture shapers – so now it’s time for the explorers.

Whether it’s an exploration of nature throughout the Lion City, or an escape through one of Singapore’s neighbourhoods, the country boasts no shortage of escapades for travellers interested in getting outdoors on foot.

From spellbinding Sentosa Island and the Gardens by the Bay; to Joo Chiat and the Orchard Road, the Lion City entertains a mix of cultural, historical and modern social delicacies that are best experienced on foot.
