Singapore Tourism Board (STB) has signed a three-year partnership with Warner Bros Discovery (WBD) to collaborate on entertaitnment and lifestyle content, and joint marketing. STB aims to inspire travel to Singapore while leveraging WBD’s content expertise and global distribution network. Both STB and WBD have signed a MoU to create new content.

Clement Schwebig, president and MD, India, Southeast Asia and Korea, at WBD, said: “Spanning multiple formats and genres, these original shows will bring to life the people, culture and spirit that make Singapore unique as a destination, delivering impactful stories to local and international audiences through the WBD network.”

Prior to this MoU, STB and WBD have collaborated on international marketing for Crazy Rich Asians in 2018 and HBO’s Westworld in 2020.
