Organizer

H.I.S International Travel Pte Ltd. (Singapore)

It was our great honour to be the winner of "Best Creative Planning" award this year. It really gives us a "strong booster" during the toughest period in the travel industry amid COVID-19.

H.I.S. Singapore MICE team has only 2 staff since the restructure in 2018. As a Japanese travel specialist, we received most of the inquiries for Japan travel. Nevertheless, we also handle incentive / company / study trips to other countries beyond Japan. We always offer exclusive venues and unique itineraries to our corporate / VIP clients such as gala dinner at Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium, chartered small and luxury ryokans in Hakone as well as award presentation and fine dining experience at Michelin starred restaurants in Hokkaido.

We must strive for success in this competitive industry, non-stop changing ourselves and creating new ideas to meet our clients' expectations. Thanks for JNTO's support and recognition. We will definitely work harder and stand firm after this pandemic. Thank you very much once again!
