Chingay Parade wins "Leisure Event of the Year" title


Chingay Parade clinched the "Leisure Event of the Year" title at the Singapore Experience Awards 2012 tonight.

It beat Universal Studios Singapore's Halloween Horror Nights and ZoukOut Singapore to emerge top for the catergory at the annual awards organised by the Singapore Tourism Board.

Other winners include Marina Bay Sands, the newest player in the meetings, incentive travel, conventions, and exhibitions (MICE) industry, which clinched the "Best Business Event Venue Experience" award. It took the top spot from Suntec Singapore International Convention and Exhibition Centre which has held on to the title since STB started to hand out the awards in 2009.

The MBS venue, which has been open since 2010, has a capacity for 45,000 delegates, 2,000 exhibition booths, and accommodates 250 meeting rooms.
