The appointments are made in line with the company's efforts to reinforce and grow its event management arm, SingEx Exhibitions, into a leading player in Singapore and the Asia Pacific region.
A key addition to the management team is Germaine Lim, who has been appointed as Director in CEO's Office, SingEx Holdings. She will be responsible for establishing and driving sales and sponsorship infrastructure for SingEx's portfolio of trade events. Her vast experience in sales and marketing in the retail, fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG), human resource, travel and hospitality industries will prove pivotal in finessing the sales function and driving the growth of trade events under SingEx Exhibitions.
Joining SingEx Exhibitions as Director (Projects Management) is Adrian Sng. He will oversee the project teams in transformational industries such as commodities, e-commerce, logistics and information technology clusters, as well as to spearhead efforts in establishing SingEx's footprint in trade events across key markets. With more than a decade's experience in the MICE industry, and having created and managed trade exhibitions and conferences in multiple cities previously with Koelnmesse, Adrian will play a critical role in helping SingEx grow its portfolio of trade events within the region.

Prior to joining SingEx, Gwen led the project management and marketing communications team at UBM Asia and played a vital role in organising tradeshows and conferences in the US, Europe, China and Southeast Asia. Gwen has also worked with global partners to grow existing tradeshows and develop new businesses. Her extensive experience and network will help SingEx Exhibitions forge strategic links and grow SingEx's staple of trade events.
Over the last few years, SingEx has collaborated with local and international partners to launch new trade events in Singapore, across leading industries such as healthcare, information technology and urban solutions to tap into the burgeoning South-east Asian region and other key markets.

SingEx also acquired ECI International, the UK company behind the Tyrexpo series of exhibitions held in Singapore, India, South Africa and the United Kingdom.
