Singapore, 9 July 2019 — Mr Saktiandi Supaat, Member of Parliament for Bishan-Toa Payoh GRC and Government Parliamentary Committee, Finance and Trade and Industry, will officiate the opening of this year's Singapore Gifts & Premiums Fair (SGPFair), Office Expo Asia (OEA), and PrintPack+Sign (PP+S) on 10 July at Marina Bay Sands.
The 3-in-1 mega sourcing event will be held at halls A, B, and C at the Sands Expo & Convention Centre from 10 to 12 July. Some 249 companies from more than 32 countries and regions will be showcasing their latest products and innovations to close to 12,000 expected trade visitors. This year’s events also feature pavilions from Fujian, China, Singapore, Taiwan, and Vietnam.
Most significantly, 2019 marks the 20th anniversary of SGPFair, Singapore’s longest-running, largest, and most international gifts and premiums exhibition.
Celebration with a cause
In partnership with Mojito Ventures, SGPFair will also host a Carnival where visitors can purchase a stamp card for $10 and play games to redeem sure-win gifts, popcorn, and ice-cream on the house. Visitors who purchase the stamp cards can also participate in the Lucky Draw and stand a chance to win great prizes. All proceeds from the sale of Carnival stamp cards will be donated to SGPFair’s adopted charity – Montfort Care.
Montfort Care is a network of programmes committed to improving the lives of individuals, families, and the community facing transitional challenges. Services offered by Montfort Care include three Family Service Centres, child protection service by its Big Love Child Protection Specialist Centre, cyber wellness programme for youth by its MeToYou Cyber Care programme as well as GoodLife! and YAH! programmes to support active and frail seniors to age-in-place.
A 20-year journey
Visitors and passers-by alike can take a walk down memory lane – a 27-metre timeline wall located outside Hall B that documents and highlights various SGPFair milestones and achievements. Visitors can also pose for a photo and receive a commemorative print-out at the Carnival photo booth with the hashtag #Celebrate20SGPFair19.
Inaugural Product Innovation Excellence (Pie) Awards
As part of SGPFair’s 20th anniversary celebrations, Pie Awards opened its call for entries in March to honour products and packaging solutions that contribute to sustainability, and to recognise outstanding local design talents and creativity. Winning products are now on display at the Pie Awards Winners’ Showcase.
The events also offer educational content at the Branding & Marketing Design Suite where visitors can watch local artists’ demonstrations and try out the art of hand lettering, up-cycle old cassette tapes by weaving them into various products, learn to take better photographs for social media, and create their own essential oil bath salt blends.
Admission is free and restricted to trade and corporate visitors only. A single badge allows access to all three concurrent events.
10 & 11 July (Wed & Thu): 11.00am - 7.00pm
12 July (Fri): 11.00am - 6.30pm
