The third significant development in Singapore for Pan Pacific Hotels Group this year, The Ballrooms at PARKROYAL on Beach Road, has opened. The launch of the 576 square metre dedicated events space at the 343-room hotel follows from the Group’s successful openings in Singapore – the iconic hotel-in-a-garden PARKROYAL on Pickering as well as Pan Pacific Serviced Suites Beach Road – earlier this year.
Designed as a standalone dedicated meetings facility and is connected to PARKROYAL on Beach Road via a skywalk, The Ballrooms is the perfect venue for a full range of events – weddings, gala dinners, exhibitions, meetings and conferences – and is an exciting addition to Singapore’s Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Events (MICE) offerings.
Internationally lauded as one of the world’s best meetings and convention cities, Singapore was the only Asian city in the recently-named Top Ten Convention Cities alongside Vienna, Madrid, Paris, Berlin and Barcelona, according to the latest Global Rankings by the International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA). Just last month, Singapore also retained its title as the top international meeting city and country in the Union of International Association (UIA) Global Rankings.
“Just as PARKROYAL on Pickering has redefined urban hospitality with its innovative and sustainable design, this state-of-the-art events space, The Ballrooms, adds a new and exciting dimension to Singapore’s MICE offerings,” said A. Patrick Imbardelli, CEO and President of Pan Pacific Hotels Group.
“This third significant development for us in Singapore signals our confidence in the country’s draw as a top global conventions hub, and The Ballrooms will capitalise on growing business opportunities in this market. As we have shown with PARKROYAL on Pickering, we want to continue to introduce varied and compelling products that are attuned with evolving consumer travel demands.”
Boasting its own separate entrance off Nicoll Highway, driveway and drop-off point leading to an expansive landscaped courtyard, The Ballrooms at PARKROYAL on Beach Road offers an exclusive and elevated sense of arrival.
Set over 576 square metres and with the capacity to accommodate up to 860 guests, The Ballrooms features a spacious reception area, two Ballrooms, a private boardroom and contemporary interiors inspired by nature and focused on a harmonious relationship between outside and inside. Both ballrooms are pillar-less and can be flexibly configured into six separate rooms for smaller meetings and events. Seven metre high ceilings coupled with double height floor-to-ceiling windows allow natural light to flood into the open plan, spacious interiors.
Guests will also benefit from advanced AV and IT capabilities, all of which are seamlessly embedded into The Ballrooms’ elegant design. These offerings will be complemented by PARKROYAL’s personalised, warm and friendly style of service through a dedicated Events Concierge and events and AV teams providing knowledge, support and expertise for a seamless, successful and enjoyable event experience.
The Ballrooms’ prime location just minutes from the newly reopened Suntec International Convention Centre, Raffles Convention Centre and Marina Bay Sands also makes it an ideal venue for secondary conferences, meetings and events prior and in relation to city-wide conferences and events. PARKROYAL on Beach Road’s proximity to the cultural and entertainment district of Kampong Glam gives guests and delegates easy access to a wide range of shopping and dining options.
In Australia, Pan Pacific Hotels Group owns and manages four hotels – namely, Pan Pacific Perth, PARKROYAL Darling Harbour, Sydney, PARKROYAL Melbourne Airport and PARKROYAL Parramatta.
The launch of The Ballrooms on PARKROYAL Beach Road comes at the heels of recent PARKROYAL developments in Australia including the multi-million dollar refurbishment of PARKROYAL Darling Harbour, Sydney and PARKROYAL Melbourne Airport’s second consecutive win of “Best Airport Hotel, Australia/Pacific” at the 2013 World Airport Awards.
