Ong Huey Hong Of Singapore Tourism Board First Recipient Of The Rama Rebbapragada Award For Outstanding Contribution To The Cruise Industry In Asia

SINGAPORE and NEW YORK, Oct. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Michael Bayley, President and CEO, Celebrity Cruises presented the inaugural Rama Rebbapragada Award for Outstanding Contribution to the Cruise Industry in Asia  tonight during the Cruise Shipping Asia-Pacific Welcome Reception in Singapore.

Joined on stage by Rebbapragada's wife Patricia, Bayley presented the award to Ms. Ong Huey Hong, Director, Cruise with the Singapore Tourism Board, in recognition of her influential role in the development of Singapore's Marina Bay Cruise Centre, which has proven to be a catalyst in transforming Singapore's cruise landscape. Among her multiple achievements, Huey Hong actively pushed for the creation of the Cruise Development Fund to accelerate deployment in the region, not only helping to grow Singapore's cruise industry, but creating economic benefits for neighboring countries with the increasing numbers of ships calling in Southeast Asia. In addition, Ong identified the need to grow the distribution channels, working closely with the Asia Cruise Association to expand the pool of cruise specialists in key source markets including India, Indonesia and the Philippines.

"Like Rama, Huey Hong is a clear advocate and champion for the cruise industry, and exemplifies the values Rama demonstrated to all of us over two decades," said Bayley.

The Cruise Shipping Asia-Pacific conference and trade show will continue tomorrow with a full day of concurrent sessions, CLIA Australasia travel agent training, and networking on the trade show floor.  Conference session details can be found at cruiseshippingasia.com or by clicking here.

Visitors may register to attend on site at the Sands Expo and Convention Centre at the Marina Bay Sands.
