Singapore hotels celebrate milestone
Singapore, April 7, 2011
 

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.

 

For more information on the SHA 50th Anniversary Dinner, contact SHA at secretariat@sha.org.sg or 6513-0233. For more information on TTG Asia's Special Edition, contact (editorial or marketing opportunities) ttgnewsdesk@ttgasia.com.
