In March, it will stage the first International Brain Stimulation Conference 2015, bringing together medical practitioners and experts specialising in the field, as well as the inaugural Last Mile Fulfilment Asia 2015, a trade event for the logistics and fulfilment industries.

The same month, the venue will also welcome the newly formed World Rubber Week 2015, combining the revamped World Rubber Summit, Rubber Exchange Forum and Tyrexpo Asia, which is expected to attract more than 6,000 international delegates.

Another inaugural event, Radiology Asia 2015, which comprises a scientific meeting alongside an exhibition featuring the latest innovation in medical imaging technology will be held in May. In April, Metrology Asia 2015 will showcase the latest measuring and inspection applications to maximise productivity and accuracy.

In addition to these new-to-market events, US Skincare brand Jeunesse has chosen the venue for its annual incentive conference for 10,000 delegates in September, and global oil and gas event GASTECH will take place in Singapore for the first time in October.

Overall these new wins are expected to attract more than 50,000 foreign visitors to Singapore, providing a significant boost for the local economy.

Aloysius Arlando, chief executive officer of SingEx Venues, the management company of Singapore EXPO and MAX Atria said: "We are honoured to host these key industry events, some of which are being held here for the very first time. The robust line up of business events represents our ability to reach into the key verticals that are aligned with Singapore’s vision of becoming a knowledge-based economy, while concurrently generating significant spin-offs for the tourism and MICE industries.

"This year is also more meaningful as the nation celebrates her 50th birthday, and we hope our international guests will enjoy the vibrant and festive atmosphere throughout Singapore during their events."

Singapore EXPO’s calendar of events is further strengthened by returning events such as the annual International Furniture Fair Singapore in March, Internet of Things Asia in April, FPSO World Congress in September and the 18th Annual Asian Shared Services and Outsourcing Week in November.

The venue will play host to the 28th Southeast Asian Games (SEA Games) in June, featuring sporting events such as boxing, wushu, and sepak takraw.
