The success of study tour “Destination Singapore” in 2012-13, has drawn management focus to build study tour as a focus line of business, independent of training business. Therefore, in addition to training & consultancy, Aprikot focuses on developing Singapore as a destination for study tours, speciﬁcally to attract Senior and C-Level executives to visit Singapore as a destination for experience and expertise.
The study tours is targeted predominantly for Middle-Eastern countries like the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain & Kuwait. For this purpose, Aprikot has established a partnership with Wide View FZ LLC, a UAE based knowledge provider.
The success of study tour vests in showcasing Singapore as a destination to learn and relax. This learning is great for new emerging countries, with new wealth and desire to learn from others. Apart from Middle East, we plan to focus on Eastern European countries, we are in the process of identifying partners in Kazakhstan, Poland, Czech Republic and Russia.
