What is SkillsFuture Study Award?

The SkillsFuture Study Awards equip Singaporeans with the skills needed to benefit from quality jobs created by our economy. As Singapore continues our transition to an innovation-driven economy, new skills and competencies among Singaporeans will be in demand. Jobs are also evolving with new functions and existing ones requiring updated skillsets. The SkillsFuture Study Awards encourage Singaporeans to develop and deepen specialist skills needed by future economic growth sectors or in areas of demand. It also supports Singaporeans who already have deep specialist skills to develop other competencies. Over 500 study awards will be available from October 2015. At a later stage, we aim to give up to 2,000 study awards annually.

SkillsFuture Study Award for MICE and Events Sector

Sector Overview

In 2015, Singapore received more than 3 million business visitors who came for business travel or to attend a Meeting, Incentive, Conference or Exhibition (MICE). This number increases significantly if we take into account the people who are already working in Singapore that attend these off-sites, conferences, trainings and events.

The entire ecosystem is supported by hotels, venues, conference & exhibition organisers, destination management companies, supporting companies such as stand builders and logistics, and tourist attractions. However, what drives Singapore’s vibrant and successful MICE industry is human capital, and this must remain at the core.

Faced with an increasingly competitive environment, Singapore must keep pace with ever-evolving global trends such as emerging technologies, new meetings design, and data analytics, while continuing to place customer service at the heart of the business. The MICE workforce plays an integral part in helping the sector grow, compete, and stay relevant to meet the changing demands of the increasingly discerning business travellers.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Singaporeans with at least 2 years of work experience in the MICE Sector and at least 1 year of work experience in current/previous MICE company
