Marina Bay Sands has made its third consecutive win of the Best Business Event Venue award at the 2017 Singapore Tourism Awards.
The integrated resort was also recognised as the country’s leading business event venue in 2012 and 2013, when the tourism board’s annual awards were under former name Singapore Experience Awards.
With three consecutive wins under its belt, Marina Bay Sands qualifies to receive the Exceptional Achievement award at the 2018 Singapore Tourism Awards for consecutively dominating this category.
