Suntec Singapore International Convention and Exhibition Centre and MCI, an association, event and communications management, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding for Suntec Singapore to be the preferred partner and venue provider of MCI Group for conference placement.

 The agreement will also allow MCI to present a series of seminars that explore the art and science of managing associations. These highly interactive seminars will contribute to the knowledge of association management professionals in Asia seeking to expand regionally, and internationally. The series will begin early next year with the first seminar to be held at Suntec Singapore in February 2010.

Additionally, the arrangement will provide opportunities for both parties to increase brand and product awareness and work together on joint sales missions in China and the greater Asia Pacific region. It will also allow each partner to cross-promote respective offerings and embark on joint bid development to attract international meetings.

The agreement combines the strengths of two companies dedicated to building communities and delivering excellence with passion as well as expanding Suntec Singapore’s presence to 20 countries across Europe, the Americas, Middle East and Asia where MCI has a foothold.

An important component of the partnership entails a calculated commitment to corporate social responsibility (CSR). As signatories of the United Nations Global Compact, MCI Group is committed to promoting sustainable practices in the meetings industry. The partnership calls for Suntec Singapore’s dedication, collaboration and engagement to the CSR principles and promise that MCI Group integrates towards its business practice.

“As two advanced leaders in our respective markets, Suntec Singapore and MCI Group are in a unique position to bring value-added, innovative and premium services to the business events scene. This partnership, with both companies united in common values, marks a significant step that will allow us to present a powerful formula for the success of business events and we expect to continue to broaden and deepen our industry reach and look forward to a long and mutually-rewarding business relationship,” said Pieter Idenburg, Chief Executive Officer of Suntec Singapore.

Robin Lokerman, CEO- Institutional Division of MCI Group, said, “MCI is proud to announce this alliance with Suntec Singapore. As the largest Meetings & Events company in the world it is fitting for us to partner with one of the leading venues in Asia. In a changing competitive landscape in Singapore, we believe Suntec Singapore is the ideal partner for association congresses and we look forward to working closely with Suntec to bring more events to the city.”
