The staff, many of whom were trained in MICE serving proficiency by Raffles Knowledge Private Limited (RKPL) owned by Raffles Hotels and Resorts, also contributes to the MICE value of the hotel.

The five-star Rex Hotel Saigon, managed by Saigontourist centrally located next to The People’s Committee Building, and within walking distance to the Opera House, Reunification Palace and the fashionable shopping on Dong Khoi street, is the perfect venue to host business events, focus groups, seminars or any upscale private function.

In 2009 revenue from this sector rose 51% over 2008. Despite the economic recession, trade show and large conventions are still being held regionally and serious deals still being signed.
