I assumed those guys who decided on MBS could have made their decision
long time ago. They want theirs to be a world first in a MBS.

Very likely from the top. Evryone can watch in the next 6 to 12 months
that most of the Govt and GLC venue of meetings could be held at
Sands. There may not even any venue for RWS..maybe a handful only just
to please and happy them . Even schools and JC graduation pomps dineer
and dance, mediacorp awards, GLc and Govt conferences may plan their
Dinner and Dance at Sands too instead.

This could also be in line with directives from the top to support
MBS. This sort of conference often planned 6 to 8 months ahead of
time. It had to gather the people to attend, and so on.

However maybe no one had expected a breakdown to occur. Usually in a
large conference venue, even like suntec and hotel conferencing
ballroom, there is always a standy of people like an engineer or
technician to supervise and monitor the switch room to ensure that
everything inside the confeernce room is working and was working ok.

However, from the look of things, the breakdown of the entire aircon
system and power system even outside of the conference venue showed
that there was some kind of screwed-up or negligene in supervising and
ensuring the systems will work according to the demand. But
unfortunately it failed.

LOL... Singapore Tourism Board is promoting the IR as the lead venues
in hope to clinch major meetings and conventions.... What an
affirmation of Meeting & Convention City Singapore..... While other
countries are getting their facilities up and running effectively,
Singapore now seems to go back in time to become a poor place to hold
meetings with this kind of major international screwup. Yup, it can
only happen in Uniquely Singapore or YourSingapore!
