Day two of Singapore INSPIRES began with a trip to Maxwell Market, one of destination’s most famous hawker centres. Delegates feasted on a traditional Singaporean breakfast consisting of a variety of exotic flavours and combinations of dumplings, fried tofu and shredded pork.
From Maxwell Market, the group were then led to the Singapore City Gallery to gain an insight into Singapore’s vast physical transformation over the course of its history, while looking ahead to exciting future developments. Lunch was then enjoyed at the world-renowned Fullerton Bay Hotel, which overlooks the Marina Bay, offering great view for groups enjoying private dining from its Clifford Pier restaurant.
Following an afternoon of sightseeing and a visit to the National Gallery Singapore, the group was transported to the Shangri-La Hotel Singapore to be hosted for an interactive dining experience before an Asian-inspired feast. The hotel’s team of executive chefs led the group through a speedy cooking challenge, testing the delegates’ knowledge of local spices as well as their skill in the kitchen to produce one of the kitchen’s signature dishes.
After dinner, the group then moved back to the bay for evening drinks at the stunning Fullerton Pier, perched just opposite the iconic Marina Bay Sands providing a fantastic spot for the resort’s classic light show.
The next day the Singapore INSPIRES delegates went head-to-head on a treasure hunt for clues that took them around Singapore's multiculture districts, while interacting with the locals and sampling traditional foods and experiences.
Taking place from 23-27 March, C&IT and Singapore Tourism Board’s joint forum and fam event Singapore INSPIRES brought delegates from the UK and Europe together to experience what the island destination has to offer corporate groups large and small for themselves.
