MICE STATISTICS

 Excerpts from the book THE TRAVEL & TOURISM INDUSTRY OF SINGAPORE CUSTOMER TRENDS & MARKETS published in 1995 by Singapore Tourism Board (ISBN:9971 88 484 4)

 

This study contains charts with data spanning a 10-year period from 1984 - 1994

 
".....In 1994, Singapore's global ranking moved up one notch from the previous year's to overall sixth place, with her MICE industry attracting a total of 4,085 events.
 
"The number of foreign participants attending these events has also increased at an average annual growth rate of 8.9% over the past ten years, peaking in 1990 at 35.2%. In 1994, there was a total of 113,582; 52,591 and 216,455 foreign incentive, convention and exhibition participants respectively. As with previous years, foreign participants to exhibitions (as compared to foreign participants at other MICE segments) recorded the highest average intended length of stay at 8.1 nights in 1994, while the corresponding figure for foreign visitors to these exhibitions was 4.5 nights. On the other hand, convention delegates registered an average intended length of stay at 5.3 nights, while incentive participants stayed for an average of 2.7 nights that same year.
 
"...Over the last ten years, expenditure per person by foreign convention delegates increased by 7.4%, foreign exhibitors at almost 2.8% and foreign exhibition visitors at 3.6%. Foreign exhibitors remained the top spender among the participants in 1994, with an average expenditure of S$3,523 per capita. This growth may be the result of the increase in the length of stay by foreign exhibitors. In that same year, the average expenditure of exhibition visitors and convention delegates were S$1,674 and S$2,095 respectively.
 
"...Singapore saw an annual growth rate of 4.6% in the number of conventions held between 1985 and 1994. The same period also saw a growth of 10.7% in total foreign participants at these conventions: 52,591 foreign convention delegates and accompanying persons participated at 1994's 642 convention events, representing a spectacular growth of 36.5% over 1993. This represented a significant increase, not only in the number of foreign delegates themselves at 35.3%, but more importantly, in the number of foreign accompanying persons at 73.8%.
 
"...In 1994, 96 exhibitions were held in Singapore, representing an annual growth rate of 5.8% since 1985 (with 58 exhibitions). 1994, however, registered the highest growth rate over the last ten years, with a 23.1% increase over 1993's figures. The total number of foreign exhibition participants rose at an average annual growth rate of 6.4% from 1985, but has been growing at a slower rate over past years: in 1994, in fact, total visitor participation fell 11.1% from the previous year.
 
"In terms of size, exhibitions with less than 50 exhibiting companies were the most popular. There were 45 such exhibitions held in Singapore in 1994. This was partly due to an increase in the number of new and first time exhibitors who used Singapore as a testbed for new exhibitions..."

An additional 40,000 sq m, or four halls, is slated to be added to the Singapore Expo's six halls currently covering an area of 60,000 sq m. (Straits Times 21 May 2004) (H11)

  The number of sellers at this year's Pacific Asia Travel Association (Pata) Travel Mart has shrunk to 191, a 27-per-cent drop against last year's. Pata had struck a deal with the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) to hold the three-day exhibition in Singapore for 10 years, starting in 1998. In that year, 430 sellers turned up and in subsequent years, the average number of sellers was 300. Journalists yesterday proposed that holding it in a different country every year would acquaint delegates with more destinations.(11 Apr 2002)
