The one word that best describes Singapore is "unique". Brimming with unbridled energy, this little dynamo in Southeast Asia embodies the finest of both East and West.
Singapore's strategic location in the Asia-Pacific region, its excellent facilities, its fascinating diversity, and exciting tourist attractions make it one of the world's leading destinations for both business and pleasure. The city attracts a vast variety of global business, due to its geographic location and its seamless connections to other world financial and industrial centres. Yet far beyond its essential role in international commerce, a myriad of unforgettable experiences awaits everyone who visits Singapore.
Ranked the Top Convention City in Asia for 23 consecutive years by the Union of International Associations (2006) and the world's Third Best Convention City by the International Congress and Convention Association (2006), Singapore continually attracts high-profile international business events. Among recent events held in Singapore: the 117th International Olympic Committee Session and the 2006 Annual Meetings of the Boards of Governors of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank Group.
"We are pleased to be hosting SIGRAPH Asia 2008. Bolstered by our strategic location and accessibility to the region and the rest of Asia, Singapore is an ideal venue to launch the inaugural Asian edition of the world's largest and most significant computer graphics event. Hosting this show also complements the development of the Information Communications Technology and Digital Media industry in Singapore, adding to the vibrancy of this sector. We look forward to welcoming computer graphics aficionados worldwide to Uniquely Singapore, and sharing the latest trends in computer graphics with all visitors to the show."
