SECAUCUS, NJ (December 14, 2016) – Northstar Travel Group is pleased to announce that it has partnered with the Singapore Association of Convention & Exhibition Organisers & Suppliers (SACEOS) to produce a new event, 1-2-1 Asia Business Meet, to be held on July 25-26 just prior to SACEOS’ seventh annual Singapore MICE Forum.

1-2-1 Asia Business Meet will bring together meeting and incentive program buyers from North America, the EMEA region, and Asia for business meetings with a variety of Singapore and Asian group travel service providers, including convention and visitors’ bureaus, destination marketing companies, convention centers, hotels, and resorts. Both buyers and suppliers will also participate in curated educational sessions and networking activities as part of the program.

Together with the PCMA Meetings Forum, educational Masterclasses, and the Singapore MICE Challenge, 1-2-1 Asia Business Meet is an integral part of Singapore MICE Week, organized by SACEOS around the Singapore MICE Forum, the region’s leading MICE business conference.

“Partnering with SACEOS on 1-2-1 Asia Business Meet during Singapore MICE Week is a perfect opportunity for Northstar to leverage its capabilities facilitating meeting, incentive and conference business growth in Asia,” said David Blansfield, Executive Vice President, Northstar Travel Group. “Asia is poised to grow its MICE business significantly. We’re excited to be contributing to that growth, through our brands – most notably M&C Asia, headquartered in Singapore, and now 1-2-1 Asia Business Meet. Ultimately, our business is about bringing buyers together with the MICE industry suppliers who are most suited to their needs. This exciting new event is a perfect illustration of that.”

“SACEOS is very pleased to be partnering with Northstar Travel Group to organize the inaugural 1-2-1 Asia Business Meet in conjunction with our 7th Singapore MICE Forum,” said Janet Tan-Collis, President, SACEOS. “Meeting Business Events continues to grow within Asia-Pacific as well as from the global market to the Asia region. The 1-2-1 Asia Business Meet serves this very purpose with private one-to-one meeting sessions, with the additional benefit of a visit to another Asian destination, to be announced soon. With the reach and capabilities Northstar brings, we are excited for the business opportunities this partnership will provide for the MICE industry in Asia.”
