Inspiring Spaces for conventions & exhibitions
Singapore EXPO Convention and Exhibition Centre was officially opened in 1999, and is managed by Singex Venues Pte Ltd. Since its inception, EXPO has garnered numerous accolades amongst which they were voted third “Best Convention and Exhibition Facility in Asia” by CEI Asia readers in 2008, recognised as a Business Superbrand (Singapore) as well as being nominated as Exhibition News Awards “Best International Venue” finalist in 2010.
Over 600 events are held here annually and more than six million visitors come through their doors every year. From intimate conferences and corporate meetings, to large-scale conventions, consumer exhibitions and international trade shows, EXPO is the answer to creating that perfect business event.
Their 10 convention-exhibition halls each boasts 10,000 sqm (107,640 sqft) of column-free ground level space, and with Halls 1 to 6 as well as Halls 7 to 10 interlinked, you can be assured of the seamless movement of delegates and the ease of loading and unloading of goods. Their high floor loading of up to 30 KN/sqm can easily support heavy machinery and vehicles, an advantage organisers and exhibitors of tradeshows in industries such as defence, manufacturing and maritime have enjoyed. Their towering ceiling height of 10 to 16 metres allows for double-storey booths and elaborate displays, injecting a sense of grandeur to your event.
The Singex team’s commitment to operational and service excellence, together with their versatility in space configurations, are a winning combination that their major conventions and exhibitions organisers recognise us for. Their numerous success stories encompass a diverse spectrum of industries, from banking and finance, biomedical sciences, energy, infocomm technology and media, lifestyle to transport and logistics.
Astounding Versatility for conferences & meetings
No event is too small or large for their event maestros to handle. From modern audio visual equipment and acoustically-treated walls, to a sophisticated tiered seating system, they have the expertise to create a rewarding business event for you. Four rooms are linked to Halls 2 and 3, and they are ideal for conferences, meetings, seminars and workshops that can accommodate up to 220 delegates.

Certified Green Mark Platinum by Singapore’s Building & Construction Authority, the incorporation of green belts within MAX Atria will fuse outdoor elements into indoor meeting spaces, inspiring new ideas and refreshing minds.
Endless Possibilities for banquets & special events
Apart from business events, a myriad of entertainment and special events has also been staged here. The MAX Pavilion is a premier multi-purpose event arena with
theatre-style seating that can accommodate 6,500 people. It comes complete with sophisticated projection, audio-visual and lighting systems, changing rooms with

Coupled with their sumptuous in-house catering menus and thematic ideas, they can transform your event into a glitzy affair. If you want to add a refreshing dimension to your events, why not bring them outdoors? They have over 8,000 sqm of open-air car park area, which they can deftly reconstruct into eye-catching spaces for mini exhibitions, product launches
and much more. The garden courtyard and rooftop space at MAX Atria are ideal for intimate cocktail receptions and romantic wedding solemnisations.
