Safe Management Measures

FAQs

Montgomery Asia is looking forward to welcome you to SFFA, RPB Asia, SCTA and MPA 2021 happening on 28th – 30th September 2021. The event is set to take place physically at Suntec City Convention Centre. We wish to share with you some updates on Singapore’s business travel rules and answer some key questions you may have about attending the tradeshow.

Background

Montgomery Asia wishes to reassure all its visitors, exhibitors and supporting associations that every effort will be made to deliver a world class business to business experience within a safe, secure environment which adheres to all of Singapore’s Safe Management Measures (SMMs).

On 24th – 25th March 2021, Montgomery Asia organised Geo Connect Asia, with the full support of the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) and Singapore Land Authority (SLA). This was the first large-scale hybrid MICE event to take place physically this year with over 1,200 attendees from across 55 countries including both local and foreign attendees, exhibitors, sponsors and supporting associations.

With rigorous protocols and innovative solutions for the end-to-end visitor journey, Geo Connect Asia implemented new technologies, such as Bluetooth tracking dongle and facial recognition tools, that were piloted to prepare for major events like World Economic Forum this coming August.

Drawing from the lessons and experience from Geo Connect Asia, the Montgomery Asia Team will ensure a tradeshow with robust safe management measures in place to provide a safe environment for all our attendees. We continue to work closely with the Singapore Tourism Board to obtain the latest updates and refine our processes to instill the greatest confidence possible in all our attendees.

We look forward to welcoming you to Singapore in September 2021.
