Singapore makes play to become “world’s best MICE city”
Edited by Travel Weekly


    The Singapore Tourism Board (STB) has unveiled a global campaign aimed at solidifying Singapore’s reputation as the “World’s Best MICE City.” MICE stands for meetings, incentives, conferences, and exhibitions for those concerned about hygiene.

    Created with BBH Singapore, Zenith Media, and Digitas of The Shophouse @ Publicis, this campaign marks the first of six international campaigns slated for launch in the upcoming years. This strategic move follows STB’s unveiling of its refreshed marketing approach in 2023, signaling a concerted effort to enhance the narrative surrounding Singapore’s appeal.

    The “World’s Best MICE City” global campaign showcases Singapore’s impact-driven approach to MICE events, made possible by the nation’s commitment to innovation and sustainability, as well as its position as a strategic gateway to Asia and beyond.

    The campaign’s launch film, directed by Roslee Yusof, tells the story of two MICE delegates who face very different challenges, but embark on parallel journeys in Singapore to find answers, drawing inspiration from businesses and events that are leading the charge in creating a positive impact.

    Janson Choo, executive creative director at BBH Singapore, The Shophouse @ Publicis, said: “Each year Singapore hosts a vibrant calendar of MICE events, many of which facilitate meaningful conversations and collaborations to address the most pressing challenges of our world. We wanted to capture the emotional journey of delegates at these events, and how their experience in Singapore, enables them to create positive lasting impact, beyond Singapore.”

    This campaign aligns with STB’s Passion Made Possible destination brand, which celebrates the Singapore spirit of creating possibilities and making ordinary moments extraordinary. It invites the global MICE community to tap into Singapore’s offerings, encouraging the creation and delivery of business events that exceed traditional expectations and leave a meaningful, lasting legacy.

    Beyond the campaign film and social assets, the campaign, set to roll out progressively across key markets and regions including China, Europe, Germany, Indonesia, and United States, will include in-market trade engagements and MICE travel tradeshows to showcase how Singapore delivers on every aspect of the MICE experience.
