To increase footfall from metros and tier-II cities of India

With the new destination brand ‘Passion made Possible’, Singapore Tourism Board (STB) has embarked on a series of collaborative initiatives to attract diverse travellers.

The State capital was the venue for the STB’s eight-city road show on Friday to increase the footfall to Singapore from the metros and tier-II cities of the country.

Themed ‘Growing Connections, Achieving Together’, the STB presented the latest developments in the Singapore tourism scene and presented new offerings like Passion Tours, Jewel Changi Airport, Rainforest Lumina, the upcoming Wildlife Ecotourism Hub, Design Orchard, and Gardens by the Bay.

Stakeholders from Singapore representing hotels, airlines, destination management companies, and cruise operators attended the road show.

Later, Adrian Kong, area director, India & South Asia-Mumbai, told a press conference that the STB was looking forward to working closely with travel trade partners here.
