Home' micenet eMag : micenet February 2018 Contents incredible growth in the number of rooftop bars in Singapore. Derived from the Singlish
pronunciation of the word “roof”, Loof was Singapore’s first stand-alone rooftop bar and
remains a firm favourite with locals and visitors. Located at Odeon Tower, its urban garden
environment is a relaxing spot to kick back with bespoke cocktails.
Another popular venue is The Rooftop at Potato Head Folk, a tiki-themed bar located on
Keong Saik Road. Resplendent with fairy lights and a panoramic view of the nearby
skyscrapers, it has a great range of cocktails and light meals for the hungry guest.
Atop the Fullerton Bay Hotel, Lantern is another popular rooftop bar. Surrounded by water on
three sides it’s a great place to watch the laser light show at Marina Bay Sands across the bay.
Venue options - sourcing the ideal meeting venue in Singapore
It’s important to balance the size of your venue with the size of your audience. Bigger is not
necessarily better, but you should cater for adequate spaces so attendees have enough room to
stretch, mingle and breathe. Singapore has a wide range of venue options ranging in capacity from
five to 30,000 PAX (Singapore Expo).
The venue’s location can determine whether your event attracts a good turnout. Before
confirming your event venue, ensure that it is well-connected to the public transport network.
It is also important to ensure that the ambience and decor of the venue matches the desired
mood and theme of your event. If you’re organising a gala dinner you will have a different set of
requirements than if you were planning for an expo or a casual networking session. Singapore
provides a wide array of venue options that are suitable for events ranging from formal conferences
to casual networking sessions.
Select a meeting venue that has the facilities you require for your event such as technical
capabilities, wheelchair access and food catering. Whether it is a simple slideshow presentation or
an elaborate immersive audio-visual experience, ensure that the venue can accommodate your
needs. Additionally, do enquire if the venue provides charging stations for mobile devices and Wi-Fi
services for your attendees as these are essential to providing a good experience for your delegates.
Venues have a big role to play in contributing to the carbon cost of an event. By choosing one
with strong sustainability policies, it will be easier for you to implement sustainable initiatives during
the event. Singapore sets the standard in Asia with its Sustainable Singapore Blueprint, the
country’s 10 year master blueprint towards being a zero waste nation. Go green in Singapore! m
