Create an Event Management Company in Singapore

Singapore is currently one of the largest business centers in Asia which is why the event management industry has become very profitable. Also known as an international meeting or convention city, Singapore has become a top-choice destination for international companies organizing conventions, forums, exhibitions and other events.

In the light of the newly-launched Integrated Resorts program, this city-state represents a good investment opportunity for those wanting to open a company in Singapore in the event management industry here in 2024. Events are divided into:

  • MICE which stands for Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Exhibitions;
  • performing arts;
  • lifestyle, leisure or personal events, such as weddings.

Each of the activities above require certain special licenses. Our local specialists in company registration can help you obtain permits for event management activities in 2024.

Open a company in Singapore as an event management company in 2024

Opening a Singapore event management business is quite simple and easy which is why the number of these companies has increased during the last few years. The first formality to be accomplished is to have the incorporation documents drafted and filed with the Singapore Trade Register. Our Singapore company formation consultants can assist you with the business registration procedure.

Permits and licenses required for event management businesses in Singapore

As mention above there are several types of activities an event management company can organize which is why the licenses requested vary. Among the permits one needs to apply for when running an event management business are:

  • an art entertainment license which is issued by the Singapore Media Development Authority;
  • a copyright permit which must be issued by one of the societies or institutions registered with the Collective Management Organization;
  • a public entertainment license which is issued by the Singapore Police Department;
  • a trade fair license which is issued by the Singapore National Environment Agency;
  • an animal exhibition license issued by the Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority of the city-state.

Singapore, a hotspot of the MICE industry

With numerous large locations that can host various sizes of events, Singapore aims to become the World’s Best MICE City in 2024, with the help of the Tourism Board.

The Board has already created several events to promote the city-state with an attendance of more than 1,000 MICE professionals earlier this year. So, setting up an event management company in Singapore is definitely a good business idea.

If you are interested in opening such a venture, you should know that such businesses do not address corporate clients only, as there are many foreigners who come to get married in Singapore and for whom such a service is a great choice.
