Skift Picks Resorts World Sentosa to Launch Its First Asia Forum 2019 in Singapore
By Paige Lee Pei Qi, Assistant Editor, TTG Asia Media
Come this May, Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) will play host to Skift’s inaugural Asia Forum in the Equarius Hotel Ballroom, featuring the travel trade’s most insightful business leaders and creative thinkers, with esteemed industry veterans and heavyweights such as Goh Choon Phong, CEO of Singapore Airlines; Tony Fernades, CEO of AirAsia Group; Qian Jiannong, Chairman and CEO of Fosun Tourism Group; Sonia Cheng, CEO of Rosewood Hotel Group amongst others.
Dubbed as the “Ted of travel” by the industry, this one-day conference will welcome over 400 attendees from more than 20 countries.
Sharing the reason for selecting RWS, CEO and founder of Skift, Rafat Ali, said: “Skift chose this location because it offers something for everyone, just like APAC does as a region for tourism. The hotel is a stone’s throw away from nature hikes, waterfront dining as well as the island’s numerous attractions.”
The conference itself will take place in the Equarius Hotel Ballroom’s adaptable meeting space, with balconies extending out to take advantage of the panoramic views of lush tropical rainforest.
Ali elaborated: “All of this combined with the experiences of unique dining, relaxing spas and world-class attractions, will offer Skift Forum Asia attendees a unique mix of mind-expanding inspiration and superior networking opportunities.”
With a plethora of venues clamouring competitively for business today, RWS emerges as a natural choice of the MICE audience with its unique capability to integrate business and leisure to offer a holistic experience in one destination. Unlike others, RWS provides the full suite of both state-of-the-art and unconventional meeting venues while offering unrivalled options for fun and play.
As testament to the resort’s outstanding capabilities, it has been voted “Best Integrated Resort” for eight consecutive years at the TTG Travel Awards which recognises the best of Asia-Pacific’s travel industry.
As the team at RWS prepares to switch into full gear to host Skift Forum Asia, a sense of adventure awaits the guests as they get to enjoy a uniquely RWS experience – exclusive hospitality, outstanding culinary art to pampering and relaxation; all in one destination.
Mixing business with leisure, there will always be something for everyone.
