The COVID-19 recovery webinars are part of our overall commitment and responsibility to Singapore and the communities we operate in. We aim to help businesses navigate challenges during the COVID-19 outbreak so they can emerge resilient and continue to support their customers during this time.Sandhya Devanathan, Country Managing Director of Facebook Singapore

The webinars will be targeted at sectors most impacted by the pandemic – Travel, Hospitality, Retail & BTMICE (Business Travel and Meetings, Incentive Travel, Conventions and Exhibitions) Events. This is also in line with IMDA’s ‘Stay Healthy, Go Digital’ campaign, calling on businesses to embrace digitalization, so that they can continue to run their business online as much as possible, to help flatten the curve of infections.

As our industry rides through the current challenges, we must take every opportunity to prepare ourselves for the return of travel demand. This partnership with Facebook is part of STB Marketing College’s commitment to help our businesses do just that. Through these webinars, we hope they will learn more about engaging their customers, rethinking their strategies and growing their brand.Terrence Voon, STB’s Director of Communications and Marketing Capability

Despite the challenges of COVID-19, many Singapore companies have displayed their resilience by coming up with new and innovative ways to connect with their customers through social commerce. We want to support and empower them to continue doing so and remain relevant through these difficult times.Alan Yeo, Director from Enterprise Singapore
