New technological innovations at The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore’s Grand Ballroom and meeting spaces look set to transform corporate events, meetings and social celebrations.
Centrally located along Singapore’s Marina Bay, this 608-room luxury hotel has recently elevated the Grand Ballroom to a dynamic, multi-entertainment venue capable of hosting a variety of meetings and events. It now boasts of three panoramic LED video walls, intelligent lighting and a sound system capable of hosting a live orchestra, concert, or even a DJ performance.
“A unique, multi-sensory and immersive event experience”
“As a leader in hosting luxury meetings and events, we want to avail these exciting tools and product enhancements to meeting planners, so that they can leverage on our innovative meetings and events space to craft a unique, multi-sensory and immersive event experience that will leave an indelible impression on their guests,” said Peter Mainguy, general manager.
Panoramic LED video walls
Comprised of three modular super high definition screens with a pixel pitch of 3.9 mm, meeting planners will have the capability to showcase visually impactful presentations on the largest panoramic LED video walls in a luxury Singapore hotel ballroom, measuring a total of 23 metres by 4 metres.
The centre LED screen boasts a smart movable design that can be brought forwards or backwards to maximise stage space, while 360-degree event footage can be captured by a ceiling mounted camera, in addition to giving meeting planners the option to do a ‘live’ feed or to stream the event online.
Intelligent lighting system
Newly outfitted with a combination of 18 profile lights and wash lights, the intelligent lighting system comes with atmospheric smoke effects, to allow event planners to customise their event’s ambience and stage design using a variety of up to 36 colours and ten gobos.
Coupled with 12 new line array speakers mounted on the left and right of the stage, plus four portable subwoofers, event planners will be able to immerse their guests in an audio journey comprised of superior sonic qualities in precision and musicality.
Digital flip charts
Renowned for iconic views from its spacious guest rooms and suites, The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore is also the first hotel in Southeast Asia to adopt the use of the Samsung Flip as an upgrade to traditional paper flip charts and whiteboards, augmenting the meetings experience and minimising carbon footprint at the same time.
“In envisioning the workplace of the future, the introduction of the Samsung Flip in our conference facilities will allow discussions to be more dynamic, fun and creative, where participants can illustrate their ideas in writing or through drawing on a digital board. We are thrilled that this technology will help enhance our meeting experiences, and is a brilliant presentation tool for those looking to wow their guests,” said Mainguy.
Each Flip display has a height-adjustable stand and can be used by four participants at a time. Its wheel-based portability offers the flexibility of innovating business discussions in any of the hotel’s existing meetings and events spaces – from the eight Millenia Rooms located on Level Two, to the private dining rooms in Summer Pavilion or the light-filled Chihuly Rooms, located on Level Three.
