TFWA says it has organised several activities at this May's TFWA Asia Pacific show to make it easier for delegate networking at the show.

The show is taking place at a different venue this year in the Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Center (MBS) from 12-16 May and Carla Guiducci, Vice Present Marketing, TFWA says that business networking is obviously an essential element.

She said: "TFWA takes enormous trouble to organise a range of social events at venues which are not only attractive, but also conducive to meeting the people who will make your business tick in the Asia Pacific region.

"Even first-time visitors will quickly feel at home engaging in light-hearted activities in elegant yet relaxed surroundings. Most importantly, our unique ONE2ONE ‘match-making’ service takes the headache out of identifying appropriate contacts and arranging appointments.”

The popular ONE2ONE service, which puts airports and operators in touch with exhibiting brands and distributors, is available now at TFWA says that the meetings will take place in a special suite of rooms inside the exhibition hall.


With record exhibition space of almost 8,000sq m on level B2 of MBS and more than 240 stands, delegates attending TFWA Asia Pacific are expected to have a busy and productive week in an exhibition venue which TFWA describes as one of 'the highest quality'.

For those looking for an informal meeting place after hours there will be the TFWA Asia Pacific Bar and terrace on level 4 of MBS serving refreshments on Monday 13 May from 17:45 to 19:30 and from 18:00 to 19:30 on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The TFWA Asia Pacific Golf Tournament, organised in partnership with Interparfums on the Tanjong course at the Sentosa Golf Club is scheduled for Sunday 12 May with the first tee-off timed for 07.30.

On Sunday evening at 19:30 the Welcoming Cocktail will be held again at the world-famous Raffles Hotel with a ‘Scent of Chance’ theme.

During the week, TFWA is proposing a Chill-Out Party at the Mandarin Oriental Poolside on Tuesday 14 at 19:30, which will take on a playground theme with pinball, pool, darts and table football among the amusements on offer. This informal event is sponsored by Tic Tac from Ferrero.


The social climax will be the Singapore Swing Party, which this year will be staged at the historic Alkaff Mansion, on Wednesday 15 starting at 19:30.

This will be located in the Telok Blangah Hill Park, just minutes from MBS by courtesy bus. The mansion is said to offer panoramic views of the park and the sea below. Guests will travel back to the ‘Roaring Twenties’ for a night of dining, dancing, jazz and casino games at one of Singapore’s most spectacular venues.

Tickets to the social events are included in the TFWA Asia Pacific Conference & Exhibition Full Delegate package. However, extra tickets may be available for purchase from the registration area on site subject to availability.
