Alipay together with the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) have launched a series of joint marketing initiatives aimed at raising destination awareness of Singapore and driving tourist spending among Chinese visitors.
Since signing a MOU in September 2017, Alipay has experienced double-digit growth in user spending. China has also become Singapore’s top market in 2017 for both tourism receipts and visitor arrivals, contributing USD 4.2 billion in tourism receipts and 3.2 million visitor arrivals.
The marketing activities are designed to incentivize Alipay users, through rewards and discounts, to spend across different types of tourism businesses such as retail, F&B and attractions, further boosting their spending in Singapore. Alipay and STB will also create tailored itineraries that are aligned with STB’s new Passion Made Possible brand. These itineraries will encourage Alipay users to pursue their passions by exploring and discovering new attractions, dining and shopping experiences. It will also give them more reasons to visit and spend more in Singapore.
Additionally, the partnership will deepen STB’s understanding of Chinese visitors’ consumer behavior and spending patterns, leveraging Alipay’s insights.
