Create-an-event-management-company-in-SingaporeOverview of the event management industry 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, Singapore represents a good investment opportunity for those wanting to set up an event management company here. 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 specialists in company registration in Singapore can help you obtain permits for event management activities.

The video below shows the main steps to open an event management company in Singapore:

Starting an event management company in Singapore

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 consultants in company formation 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.

For information about the documents and fees required to apply for one of the licenses above, please contact our company formation agents in Singapore.
