A landmark in the Singapore skyline, Marina Bay Sands has always gone the extra mile to bring business, leisure and entertainment to greater heights. Now with brand-new activities, personalised touches and overhauled facilities, Singapore’s leading integrated resort has more to offer MICE groups than ever before. 
The integrated resort boasts 120,000 square metres of flexible meeting space; over 80 dining options including 15 signature restaurants; more than 170 luxury and premium brands, 2,561 newly upgraded rooms and suites, and world-class entertainment. Whether you are organising a 10-person party or a convention for 10,000 delegates, Marina Bay Sands has the right facilities for any event, from start to finish.
On top of 24 ballrooms, 250 meetings rooms and two floors of exhibition space totalling over 30,000 square metres, guests can host events in a number of unique spaces. That includes the Sands SkyPark, with its open-air, 360-degree views of Singapore from 200-metres above ground; the 7,652-square-metre Sands Grand Ballroom, the biggest ballroom in Southeast Asia, which can be divided into 16 rooms for simultaneous meetings; as well as ArtScience Museum, an iconic venue perfect for press conferences, product launches, fashion shows and cocktail receptions alike, spanning 6,800 square-metres—including a two-storey rain oculus—with room for up to 1,200 guests.

While enhancing its meetings and events space, Marina Bay Sands continues to refresh its service and product offerings to facilitate more personal experiences to guests. In 2017, the integrated resort linked its technical and creative strengths to design the Spectra light and water show. Now Spectra turns the harbour into a theatre each night, using cutting-edge visuals to tell the story of Singapore’s transformation into the city it is today. Inside the Shoppes, the Digital Light Canvas lets guests craft personalised messages, create calligraphic art with their feet or simply be amazed by the futuristic world of fish, flowers and birds that forms around them.
New food and beverage options have cemented the integrated resort’s gourmet reputation. The Bird Southern Table & Bar, serving Classic American comfort food made with farm-fresh ingredients, and world-famous Italian-American restaurant LAVO have introduced fresh, inventive flavours. Meanwhile, nine restaurants run by celebrity chefs, including the legendary Wolfgang Puck and Gordon Ramsay, continue to deliver exquisite experiences to discerning diners.

Since its opening in 2010, Marina Bay Sands has time and again been recognised for its meetings and events prowess. The integrated resort took home the highly regarded ‘Exceptional Achievement” award at 2018 Singapore Tourism Awards. The accolade comes after Marina Bay Sands was named ‘Best Business Event Venue’ for three consecutive years since 2015. It was also named ‘Best Convention & Exhibition Centre’ at the 2017 TTG Travel Awards, a first for the integrated resort.   
Those achievements can be credited to both a dedicated team that believes in delivering second-to-none service, and Marina Bay Sands' continued efforts to push the boundaries of events and co-create unforgettable experiences.

Marina Bay Sands has kept its pledge to sustainability, too. It was the first MICE facility in Southeast Asia to obtain the ISO 20121 Sustainable Events Management System certification and the largest building in Singapore to earn the Green Mark Platinum Certification by the Building and Construction Authority (BCA). A Green Meeting Advisory Service team and specially-curated Wellness Corners cater to sustainability- and wellness-conscious delegates, offering massages, edible gardens, healthy menus, fitness programmes, and stress-busting activities alike.
Singapore’s biggest and busiest MICE venue also helps guests give back. Since 2011, it has supported over 80 charities, raising millions of dollars through its Sands for Singapore Charity Festival alone. For CSR-minded guests, Marina Bay Sands can leverage on its expertise to arrange custom activities that can be incorporated into event programmes. 
From sustainability to versatile meetings solutions to dynamic entertainment, Marina Bay Sands has the keys to turn any business or leisure event into a world-class experience.
