The Singapore Association of Convention and Exhibition Organisers and Suppliers (SACEOS) launched the SG SafeEvents Certification today during the Tourism Industry Conference organised by the Singapore Tourism Board (STB). The certification programme is based on the Technical Reference (TR) 84 “Safe event management for the MICE1 and events industry” developed by the Singapore Standards Council (SSC) overseen by Enterprise Singapore (ESG).
Based on TR84, the SG SafeEvents Certification will assure event organisers and attendees that MICE and Events industry players observe and uphold hygiene benchmarks, and safe distancing best practices.
“As we progressively resume larger events and welcome more overseas visitors, we must ensure that the industry is ready to implement the necessary safeguards and systems to ensure the well-being of our visitors as well as the local community. The SG SafeEvent Standards contributes towards these efforts and we thank SACEOS and our MICE industry partners for coming together to formulate these standards during this challenging period.”
TR84 can be purchased on the Singapore Standards e-shop (www.singaporestandardseshop.sg). More details on the certification process and panel of certification bodies will be available next month (May 2021) when announced through an industry briefing. Interested enterprises in the MICE and Tourism ecosystem who wish to be certified or who wish to enquire about the certification can register their interest for the industry briefing with SACEOS at email@example.com
