A hall at Marina Bay Sands (MBS) exhibition centre flooded around noon on Tuesday, taking exhibitors of the Singapore International Water Week, who were at the area by surprise.
Speaking to queries from the media, an MBS spokesperson said:
“At approximately 12:05pm today, a small area of Hall F was affected by an overflow of rainwater. Our teams promptly provided assistance to the event organizer and any affected exhibitors.”
She added that the source of the overflow “is a drainage issue due to heavy rains in the morning” and investigations into the incident are being made to prevent a similar occurrence in the future.
