The S$20million stand-alone events space offers an exclusive arrival experience, and is the city’s newest exciting venue for weddings, meetings and events

Singapore, 26th August 2013 - The Ballrooms at PARKROYAL on Beach Road, Singapore’s newest stand-alone meetings and events facility, launches today, marking the completion of an SGD20 million investment in the property. The new development is located in a dedicated building with direct street access, and connected to the 343-room PARKROYAL on Beach Road via a skywalk.

The Ballrooms at PARKROYAL on Beach Road has been designed as the perfect backdrop to a full range of events – weddings, gala dinners, exhibitions, meetings, events and conferences. Set over 576 square metres, it can accommodate events of up to 860 guests and has been developed to provide clients with maximum versatility.

“We have a very robust weddings, private and corporate events business at PARKROYAL on Beach Road and this significant investment has been made in order to keep pace with consumer demand for more efficient use of space and the latest technology, said David Donald, General Manager. “The development of The Ballrooms at PARKROYAL on Beach Road adds to Singapore’s proposition of being a MICE hub with exceptional infrastructure and a variety of options for hosting conferences, meetings and events on varying scales and requirements.”

Located behind PARKROYAL on Beach Road (and occupying the former Furniture Mall site), The Ballroom boasts its own separate entrance off Nicoll Highway. Its driveway and drop-off point leading to an elegant open courtyard, The Ballrooms at PARKROYAL on Beach Road offers guests an exclusive and elevated sense of arrival.

Flexible Space Configurations
The impressively appointed space comprises a spacious reception area, two pillar-less Ballrooms – the Grand Ballroom and the Sky Ballroom – and a private boardroom. Both Ballrooms can be subdivided into six smaller rooms for more intimate meetings and events.

Nature-Inspired Design Concept
The contemporary design of The Ballrooms is inspired by nature. Seven metre high ceilings coupled with double height floor-to-ceiling windows allow light to flood into the open plan, spacious interiors. The clean-cut interiors of The Ballrooms further emphasise the sense of light and space - a palette of calm, neutral tones has been used with natural motifs throughout.

Advanced Audio-Visual and IT Capabilities, Knowledgeable Expertise
Guests will also benefit from advanced AV and IT capabilities with Full HD audio video conferencing system, seamlessly embedded into The Ballrooms’ elegant design. The Boardroom is equipped with an 84” Multi Media Interactive smart touch screen monitor. The device gives delegates access to online interactive media, Internet TV and on-demand streaming media including news, weather, stock market, YouTube videos, and movies. It also functions as a platform for business presentations. These offerings will be complemented by PARKROYAL’s personalised, warm and friendly style of service; a dedicated Events Concierge and events and AV teams providing knowledge and expertise – from the organising and planning stage to the actual event – will make for a seamless, successful and enjoyable event experience. Furthermore guests will be able to experience authentic Sichuan cuisine, from PARKROYAL on Beach Road’s acclaimed Si Chuan Dou Hua restaurant, at events and break-outs from meetings.

Complementary Wellness Offerings
The hotel has also completed a refurbishment of its dedicated Wellness Floor, set above The Ballrooms at PARKROYAL on Beach Road. Complementing weddings, meetings and events, it includes the flagship St. Gregory spa, alongside a poolside café and bar, gym and swimming pool. Wedding couples can choose from rejuvenating pre-wedding packages while meetings and events delegates can enjoy executive treatments during breaks or recharge sessions.

Strategic Location and Accessibility
The Ballrooms’ prime location just minutes from newly reopened Suntec International Convention Centre, Raffles Convention Centre and Marina Bay Sands makes it an ideal venue for secondary conferences, meetings and events prior and in relation to city-wide conferences and events.
