The Singapore Tourism Board announces the appointment of Mr. Markus Tan.

He will join as the Regional Director for India, Middle East, South Asia, and Africa (IMESA), effective January 1, 2024.

In his new role, based in Mumbai, Mr. Tan will spearhead STB’s initiatives in promoting Leisure and Business Travel & Meetings, Incentives, Conventions, and Exhibitions (BTMICE) in the IMESA region.

His responsibilities will include overseeing travel promotions, public relations, and marketing, and driving developmental efforts to enhance Singapore’s position as a premier travel and business destination.

Mr. Tan is a veteran of STB, having dedicated 18 years to the organisation in various pivotal roles.

Prior to this appointment, he served as the Director for World Expo and led the whole-of-government efforts to conceptualise, develop, and operate the Singapore Pavilion at Osaka World Expo 2025.

From 2015 to 2022, he was based in Tokyo, Japan, as the Regional Director for North Asia, overseeing STB operations in Japan and the Republic of Korea.

His innovative marketing initiatives and collaborations with several brands played a crucial role in showcasing Singapore as an exciting destination, influencing markets beyond the two countries.

His international stint includes an impactful role in Guangzhou, China, where he was appointed Area Director, Southern China, and Hong Kong and Macau.

His significant contributions to the tourism industry have left an indelible mark on the China and North Asia markets, as they have been instrumental in transforming these dynamic regions into key pillars of Singapore’s global tourism success.

One of Mr. Tan’s unique strengths is his keen grasp and deep understanding of the BTMICE market through his various roles and projects in the space.

Over the years, he has honed his skills and held key positions like Deputy Director, BTMICE Planning & Marketing, where he played a crucial role in developing strategies for the growth of Singapore’s BTMICE industry, as well as in marketing activities to strengthen Singapore’s position as a global business and MICE destination.

Mr. Tan will be taking over from the current Regional Director, Mr. GB Srithar.

On his appointment, Mr. Tan expresses his excitement to take on the role of STB’s Regional Director in IMESA.

India is a nation of rich culture, diversity, and, particularly in this historic moment of its explosive global growth, incredible business opportunities.

As STB strives to showcase the best of what Singapore has to offer, they remain committed to nurturing their existing relationships and cultivating new ones with the Indian travel industry.

With the support of his team, he looks forward to embarking on this journey with their partners and friends across India and together encouraging Indians to build even deeper connections with Singapore.
