The ballots are in and we are pleased to announce the winners of this year’s CEI Readers' Choice Awards.

Since our last survey, industry heavyweights Singapore, Hong Kong and Thailand have retained top positions as premier MICE destinations, thanks to the hard work of their respective convention bureaus and tourism boards. Meanwhile, the big agency players continue to jostle for the limelight, with the likes of MCI, Pico International and Uniplan launching new initiatives in the region.
