    Nordic-themed event venue comes to Singapore

    Barathi Narayan, Singapore, February 16, 2017

    Following the success of Huone Helsinki, Huone Events Hotel is expanding beyond its Nordic base and bringing its creative meetings concept to Clarke Quay, Singapore, as a first-of-its-kind in Asia-Pacific.

    Huone Singapore - to be launched on February 23 – is an all-in-one events solutions provider featuring 11 thematic meeting rooms, inspired by scenes of old Clarke Quay to sceneries in Finland, that aims to challenge traditional meetings spaces with creative concepts.

    Rooms at Huone Singapore include the Runway (45-75 people) featuring a boardroom table doubling as a runway that also enables table projection, as well as the Theatre room (75-150 people) inspired by the likes of Moulin Rouge, allowing the presenter or the product to take centre stage.

    “We wish that this can be a getaway, a business resort for the corporate sector to step out of their normal routine to come out and spend time with their team,” said CEO and founder of Huone Events Hotel, Evon Söderlund.

    “Boring meetings are our worst enemies!”

    Huone Singapore is targeting business events for up to 150 people, placing emphasis on quality over quantity.

    Event planners can either seek in-house consultants to structure, plan and help implement events or use Huone’s online reservation platform, Eventsome, that enables planners to plan, book, pay and calculate ROI for the entire event online, as well as add on programmes, from Zumba classes to crafting of paper flowers, to enhance their events.
