Why are Hotel Bookings Increasing by More Than 200% in Singapore?

The Singapore Grand Prix 2024 is set to take place on September 20-22, bringing the excitement of Formula 1 racing to the Lion City. Bookings for the Grand Prix began as early as December 2023, significantly impacting hotel demand. This early surge in reservations has led to an unprecedented increase in hotel occupancy rates, with many premium and centrally located hotels reporting near-full bookings months in advance. Consequently, this has led to a marked rise in room rates and a bustling hospitality sector gearing up to cater to the influx of international visitors.
