ALIBABA Cloud, the data intelligence arm of Alibaba Group, and the Singapore Association of Convention & Exhibition Organisers & Suppliers (SACEOS) have inked an agreement that will see both parties work together to offer training and collaboration in the fields of artificial intelligence (AI), big data and cloud technologies. As part of the collaboration, SACEOS and its members will examine the use of Alibaba Cloud data intelligence solutions. SACEOS and Alibaba Cloud will also explore hosting training and workshops to equip SACEOS members with the technology competencies to transform their businesses and ensure their events remain world-class from conception through to execution. Alibaba Cloud will also connect Singapore hospitability industries with Alibaba ecosystem and millions of potential Chinese customers to drive arrivals and spending. "Singapore's continued success as a business events and meetings destination is not just a product of the world-class infrastructure, connectivity and attractions. Our industry is relentless in our collaborations to provide world class and differentiated business events to make Singapore the Global Asia Node in the region. We are confident that this partnership will create even more opportunities for Singapore to stay ahead of the competition through adoption of leading technologies," said Mr. Aloysius Arlando, president of SACEOS and chief executive officer of SingEx Holdings.
