Corporate meetings from the US at Capella Hotel Singapore have risen a year on since the landmark meeting between US president Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un on June 12, 2018.
â€śThe meeting got us a lot of media coverage and many Americans, in particular, have since then showed keen interest in Singapore and our hotel,â€ť Diana Lee, director of sales & conference services, told TTGmice.
Most of the events from the US are corporate meetings.
At the same time, the overall stronger interest in Capella Hotel Singapore for events has encouraged the luxury property on Sentosa island to enhance its offerings.
For instance, the property unveiled an 81m2 curved LED wall in its Grand Ballroom yesterday, said to be the largest of its kind in Singapore. With four different screen configurations and high-resolution displays, the LED screen is expected to appeal to major corporate and social events.
â€śWe realised many clients needed an LED screen, and would bring their own supplier to our venue. By offering this built-in LED wall here at our Grand Ballroom, we will help our clients save on events costs and more importantly, built-up time,â€ť said Lee.
Accompanying the introduction of the LED wall is a new sustainable event F&B menu, which Lee said was launched to answer growing client requests for responsible dining options.
