The Convention Center itself is impressive. It's a huge place that's connected to a mall, the upper levels have spacious halls for the conferences, and by spacious I mean really spacious. It is clearly "the preferred place for meetings". It also boasts of the Guinness record for the World's "Largest High Definition Video Wall" on its facade.
If you happen to have a conference here, check out the other floors. When I was there, there was an Electronics Exhibition on the floor above us where I got as much as 50-70% less on gadgets (compared to Philippine prices). So It was shopping galore. Don't forget to ask for tourist refund tickets for purchases of 100SGD and more, for GST refund at the airport. Imagine, that's 50-70% LESS in a city that costs 50-100% MORE on everything else. They don't accept cards, sorry, so do bring lots of cash. The floor below us has the Mega Flea Market 9...and they just about everything there, even the kitchen sink, at very low cost. Really really good bargains.
Tip: you can search online for the scheduled events happening in Suntec, and everywhere else in Singapore.
