Attending the 2016 MRO Asia-Pacific conference this September 27-29? Organized by Penton’s Aviation Week, the event will be held at the Singapore Expo Convention & Exhibition Centre. Touted to be the industry-leading event in Asia-Pacific, featured speakers run the gamut from eminent airline leaders to esteemed heads of service providers.
With over 4,000 registered professionals in the commercial air transport maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) industry, you can expect quality aftermarket discussions and ample opportunities to interact with industry heavyweights. Registration will commence at 8am on all three days. You don’t want to be tardy and miss out on valuable networking time as a result.
Therefore it is essential to plan ahead on getting there, to make the most of the event. Below is a quick rundown on the best ways to get to the Singapore Expo Convention & Exhibition Centre.
Modes of transport
Nestled in the bustling eastern district of Singapore, there is no lack of options to get to the Singapore Expo. With a dedicated MRT station situated conveniently next to Expo Hall 6, getting there is quick and fuss-free.
For those who prefer not to be sandwiched amongst the peak hour crowds, taking a taxi or driving are more comfortable alternatives, albeit pricier. With a slew of on-demand ride-hailing services like Grab and Uber, ride options are reliable and available almost instantaneously.
As for those who wish to get there in the comfort of their cars, the Singapore Expo is conveniently located at the crossroads of 3 main expressways, namely the East Coast Parkway (ECP), Pan Island Expressway (PIE) and Tampines Expressway (TPE). However, traffic jams are inevitable during the rush hour and time spent sitting in traffic could be put to better use. As busy professionals, time is always of essence. Given an extra 15 minutes, you could make an important phone call, clear numerous emails or prepare for an upcoming meeting.
One way to free up precious time is to engage a private chauffeur to drive you in your car. Moreover, it eliminates the stresses of driving in heavy traffic and finding parking lots. If it doesn’t seem like a practical option to hire a full time driver, a great service to try would be on demand private chauffeur providers such as FIV. Although a relatively new concept on the market, such a service brings accessibility and affordability to a network of qualified chauffeurs, once considered to be an exclusive luxury for the well-heeled.
