Singapore is now taking bookings for the [email protected] business travel bubble program and is expecting the first visitors to arrive next month.
The new facilities were unveiled at a site close to Singapore’s Changi Airport and comprises 150 guestrooms and 40 dedicated meeting rooms. This number will increase to 660 rooms and 170 meeting rooms when the first phase is complete before the summer.
All international visitors are accommodated at the Expo site, where they will stay and conduct meetings without leaving the facility.
Visitors are required to stay within the business bubble for the entirety of their stay.
They will also undergo regular Covid testing throughout their stay.
Singapore’s Deputy Prime Minister Heng Swee Keat said: “We are in an unprecedented situation in uncharted waters. There is no standard playbook on how such physical meetings could resume safely. Until you try, you don’t know what you cannot do, and more importantly, you don’t know what you can do.”
