SINGAPORE hotels will pop the champagne on June 9 to mark the 50th anniversary of the Singapore Hotel Association (SHA), a milestone that comes as the industry sees record-level occupancies and earnings.
Revenue of gazetted hotels in the country rose nearly 22 per cent to S$1.9 billion (US$1.5 billion) last year, with all hotel tiers posting growth in AOR, ARR and RevPAR.
Some 700 guests from the industry are expected at a gala dinner at the Shangri-La Hotel Singapore on June 9, with Singapore's Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Defence, Teo Chee Hean, gracing the event as guest-of-honour.
A commemorative book, The heritage of hospitality – a history of the Singapore hotel industry, will be launched during the dinner.
As well, TTG Asia is producing TTG Asia's Special Edition: 50 years of the Singapore hotel industry, in its June 10 issue for the region’s travel trade. The Special Edition will be a purposeful and interesting guide, tracing the evolution of Singapore hotels and discussing the industry’s future amidst changing customer mix and distribution.
