What's new? What else? How can my event be different? These questions are often asked of a planner, and with creativity being a precious commodity, they need to find the sparks to ignite novel ideas.
Different destinations and venues will ensure the everchanging ambience and backdrop that makes it new. Planners need a buffet of options to switch things around and to mix and match to create the tempo for fun engagement. Sentosa island has a vantage point in this respect. Its portfolio of lifestyle and entertainment attractions, accommodations, dining outlets and event venues are staggering and range from local to international appeal and from budget to five-star categories.
"Business travellers are often on the lookout for unconventional and experiential MICE events and venues - this is a demand that Sentosa matches perfectly, with our array of unique leisure experiences all located conveniently on an island-in-the-city. An unparalleled Sentosa MICE experience, for instance, could feature our various themed attractions, golden beaches, and nature trails, alongside differentiated dining experiences and some 15 hotels," says Lynette Ang, CMO, Sentosa Development Corporation (SDC).
Convenience is one thing, but novelty is another, and the opportunity to put together an array of seamless experiences is the icing on the cake for planners. When delegates are able to go from conference session to team-building activity to dining and social interactions with ease and in minimal time, it frees up planners to focus more on the event details that make it special and memorable.
