The ITB Asia Team is looking forward to welcoming you at ITB Asia 2021 happening on 27 – 29 October 2021. The event is set to take place physically at Sands Expo & Convention Centre. We wish to share with you some updates on Singapore’s business travel rules and answer some key questions you may have about attending the tradeshow.
Last 25 – 26 November 2020, the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) and ITB Asia organised TravelRevive, the first major international travel tradeshow to take place physically in Asia Pacific during COVID-19, with both local and foreign attendees and exhibitors.
Leading the way with rigorous protocols and innovative solutions for the end-to-end visitor journey, TravelRevive was the first pilot tradeshow to trial the newly developed ‘hybrid event’ tradeshow prototype for safe business events, safe itineraries, and digital enablers in Singapore. Safe itineraries were specially curated for all delegates to offer them an assurance of safety, and cater experiences that are authentic, bespoke and personalised.
Drawing from the lessons and experience from TravelRevive, the ITB Asia Team will ensure a tradeshow with robust safe management measures in place to provide a safe environment for all ITB Asia attendees. We continue to work closely with the Singapore Tourism Board to obtain the latest updates and refine our processes to instil the greatest confidence possible in our attendees.
We look forward to welcoming you to Singapore in October 2021.

Health and safety measures will be put in place for these attendees.
