The Fairmont hotel has held the B2B Luxury&MICE Workshop for tourism professionals. The event started with the presentation of the Singapore Tourism Council, the official sponsor of the event.
Director of the representative office - Mrs. Beverly Ayong informed Oxu.Az about how Singapore may attract Azerbaijan.
What task does the Singapore Tourism Council face?
The office locates in Moscow, we are engaged in promotion of the Singapore tourism direction in the territory of Russia, CIS and Eastern European states. Our main task is to attract a bigger number of tourists from this market to Singapore.
How long does the office on Singapore tourism exist on this market?
It exists for already ten years. Initially, there was an office in Frankfurt. But then it was decided that it is necessary to open the office in Moscow to control this region.
Why did your agency choose Azerbaijan?
We feel the potential in this market. Some of our partners already work here, and we feel respectively that it is possible to promote the Singapore direction in Azerbaijan. This market is interesting to me.
What can Azerbaijan offer to Singapore?
In fact, this is certainly the variety of thoese opportunities, which the country offers, the impressions which it can present.
The culture of Singapore is quite diverse, because it includes various ethnic groups. In addition, its population differs from the population of other Asian countries surrounding it. Therefore, more and more often the tourists, including from Azerbaijan, use this direction, as an independent direction for tourism trips, rather than combined with other countries, because they understand that one or two days will not be enough to see the country.
