The Lions Clubs Singapore will partner the Singapore Exhibition & Conventions Bureau to host the conference, which is expected to generate more than £28m in tourism receipts, as well as drawing in 20,000 attendees, making it the largest association congress ever to be held in Singapore.
The winning bid was put together with the help of public agencies and MICE industry stakeholders including hotel partners and convention venues.
"Singapore was selected over five other cities from around the world for her world-class hotels, restaurants, and convention facilities, as well as an excellent transportation network," said Joseph Wroblewski, convention committee chairperson and past international president of Lions Clubs International.
Lionel Yeo, chief executive of the Singapore Tourism Board, added: "The LCI Convention 2020 is one of the most coveted events on the congress circuit and we are truly delighted to be able to host it. Come 2020, we will aim to deliver a spectacular welcome and experience for our LCI friends. We would like to congratulate Lions Clubs Singapore, and thank all the partners who have combined their efforts to score this winning bid."
