The Suntec Singapore Convention and Exhibition Centre, located in the Central Business District, has a total of 42,000 square metres of space over multiple levels. The facility can hold events from 10 to 10,000 persons and is directly accessible to various shopping, dining and hotel options.
In August 2012, the Centre closed its doors to undergo a S$184 million modernisation programme and officially reopened in September 2013. The revamp focused on providing flexibility and functionality with the integration of advanced technology.
Examples of the technological upgrades to improve efficiency include the use of advanced kitchen equipment that allows the chefs to serve 10,000 meals daily, and the free high-speed WiFi that allows 6,000 visitors to surf the Net simultaneously.
The entrance at Suntec has also become a popular landmark for photo taking by tourists due to the installation of the world’s largest HD Video Wall.
