Iconic Mandarin Orchard Singapore offers over 30,000 square feet of versatile meeting spaces featuring state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment, intelligent lighting system, and efficient connectivity. The pillarless Grand Mandarin Ballroom can accommodate up to 950 people in a banquet setting, while new meeting suites have just recently been unveiled to cater to a wider range of banquet and conference requirements for smaller groups.
At Marina Mandarin Singapore, they offer over 20,000 square feet of extensive meeting facilities that include the pillarless Marina Mandarin Ballroom that is able to accommodate up to 700 people, with medium-sized breakout rooms available on the same floor. Smaller meeting rooms with natural daylight and private balconies are also available for up to 25 people per room.
CHALLENGES AND STRATEGY
Challenges usually come from last minute changes in event requirements or number of attendees, with the MICE teams having to accommodate such changes within extremely tight lead times. They market their MICE offerings through various channels, primarily creating awareness by participating in global road shows, collaborating with the Singapore Tourism Board on destination marketing initiatives aimed at bringing major events and groups from key markets into Singapore, and working with strategic partners that include event companies and MICE organisers.
MEETINGS WITH MERITUS PACKAGES
Their meeting packages typically include use of meeting venue, coffee and tea breaks, seminar luncheon, complimentary Wi-Fi connectivity for multiple devices, stationery for all attendees, mints and bottled water, complimentary use of an LCD projector and screen, and preferential room rates. A booking window of least six months to a year would be ideal for the group.
