Since the launch of the Passion Made Possible brand, the STB has embarked on a series of marketing campaigns and activations to showcase Singapore’s passions and talents through storytelling, and to allow visitors to discover a deeper side to Singapore as a destination. This year, the STB, in collaboration with the St+art India Foundation, will launch a special project titled “Singapore Weekender” as part of the St+art Delhi 2019.

India continues to be the third largest source market for tourist arrivals into Singapore. We want to continue enticing travellers from India with a storytelling approach for our brand “Passion Made Possible”. Singapore has a rich art, culture and music scene that we wanted to bring to the fore, and our artists at the Singapore Weekender will help bring a glimpse of this to the Indian audience.”
