AETOS Holdings has once again secured the contract to provide armed security services for the annual Marina Bay Singapore Countdown (MBSC) – the nation’s largest and grandest New Year’s Eve celebration.
AETOS’ involvement in this iconic event began when it was first engaged by The Esplanade Co. in 2009. The current Event Organiser, Pico Pro, has chosen to continue with AETOS – a decision attributed in part to stellar performance over previous years’ countdowns and a proven track record in providing event-related security solutions.
Held around Marina Bay and the surrounding precinct, the MBSC typically comprises a wide range of events and festivities and attracts more than 300,000 visitors annually. The highlights of this year’s programme include visual displays of building projection mapping sequence and a fireworks showcase. An estimated 600 Auxiliary Police Officers (APOs) will be deployed across the district, performing duties such as crowd management and traffic enforcement.
Mr Patrick Koh, Vice President, Sales & Marketing, of AETOS Holdings, said: “We are proud to continue being a part of this significant national celebration. Moving forward, I am confident that AETOS will remain the preferred security partner for the MBSC and other prominent events to come”.

Our AETOS Auxiliary Police Officers (APOs) and Security Officers (SOs) were deployed at this year’s Singapore Airshow, contributing to the overall safety and security of the event. More than 180 APOs and 16 SOs were deployed for this large-scale event between 6 and 11 February, carrying out duties such as crowd control, traffic enforcement and incident response.
The Singapore Airshow is Asia’s largest aerospace and defence event, attended by a wide variety of commercial, government and military delegations. Held biennially at the Changi Exhibition Centre, it typically hosts conferences, dialogues and seminars that explore pressing issues concerning the global aerospace community and showcase the next-generation and disruptive technology.
The Airshow also draws large crowds of visitors and tourists with exhibitions of all types of aircraft and military technology. Aerobatic flying displays regularly enthrall spectators, with teams from many different air forces participating each year – this year’s line-up included contingents from the United States Air Force, Royal Malaysian Air Force and the Jupiter Aerobatic Team from the Indonesian Air Force.
2018 marks the fourth consecutive time that AETOS has been appointed as this event’s security service provider. We look forward to a continued partnership with Experia Events for the next Singapore Airshow in 2020.

AETOS was one of several “Principal Enterprises” that received an award at the Singapore Children’s Society (SCS) Annual Appreciation Dinner on Friday, March 16 for its contribution to 1000 Enterprises for Children-in-Need. A corporate social responsibility initiative that encourages businesses to adopt SCS as their official charity, it successfully raised $2.51 million last year.
Established in 1952, the Singapore Children’s Society protects and nurtures children and youth, and its services have evolved to meet their changing needs over the years. Today, it operates 11 service centres island-wide, supporting an estimated 65,000 children, youth, and families.
The Singapore Children’s Society is one of several charities that AETOS supports as part of its commitment to not only protect, but also actively contribute to society.
