6th March 2018
Client: Deloitte Singapore
Venue: Pacific Ballroom, Pan Pacific Hotel
Services: Branding, Build Up Production, Audio Visual, Barista.
Branding remains a core in conferences, whether be it small scale or large scale. We believe efficient branding should be within reach in terms of cost as well as classy. For Deloitte’s Singapore Budget 2018 Seminar held at the Pan Pacific Hotel, we introduced a number of branding elements including a Green Dot for the presenter, a backdrop spanning the stage illuminated with long-arm lights and brand mention on the podium.
A customised, built-from-scratch barista coffee station spans across the Pan Pacific Ballroom foyer. As guests are getting registered, their experience starts at the foyer reception where they are greeted by freshly brewed coffee. This triggers an activation of the brain, getting ready for the topics to be discussed through the day.
The queue started forming at 8.30am during registration and did not stop through the day. The cuppas are a great pick-me-up post lunch and all 350 cups were completed.
Panel discussion with Slido.com provides an online platform for moderator to engage the participants. Guests can log in to Slido.com with the conference code and post their questions via their devices. The more thumbs-up the question gets, the higher it will move in priority. In addition, traditional Q&A methods are prepared beforehand with staffers ready with wireless microphones.
For audio visual, supporting equipment are assigned and taken care by COMPASS. The Pacific Ballroom completed the renovation recently and has 8000 Lumens Projector running on HDMI. We see this a common trait s with refurbished ballrooms and management understanding the need of upgrading to more current equipment.
7th February 2018:
Client: DNV GL
Venue: Andaz Hotel, Glass House
Services: LiveStream, Audio Visual and Event Support
The Glass House from Andaz Singapore remains one of the most talked about venues in Singapore. Part of the Hyatt group, Andaz combines lifestyle and luxury. The ballroom comes with full length windows and boasts an incredible 360 view of Kampong Glam and Bugis.
The topic of Livestream has come to be a staple of conferences and the requirements for fast connectivity has been in high in demand. Hotels in Singapore are upgrading and responding to ballroom refurbishment and systems upgrades. However, dedicated wireless access is still a rare commodity except for the likes of Marina Bay Sands, Resorts World Sentosa and major exhibition venues.
To ensure a smooth upstream, our livestream services include network bonding which does not tap on the venue’s internet access. Rather, it expertly combines 3 telcos; Singtel, M1 and StarHub 4G into a single upstream connection to live portals such as Facebook or YouTube.
Here is an insider tip; If you are livestreaming to YouTube or Facebook, make sure any music you play at the background are copyrighted. The livestream can be interrupted if Facebook or YouTube detects unauthorised playing of music. #copyrightissues
On the Audio Visual, a digital controller is paired with DPA Conference Microphones. DPA microphones are one of the best for speakers and widely used by Samsung, Apple and Google for their keynotes.
Rehearsal of PowerPoint slides are done the night before. In addition, a sound engineer is on standby throughout the conference to monitor volume.

8th February 2018:
Client: Deloitte Singapore
Venue: The Westin Singapore at Asia Square
Services: Audio Visual, Event Support
Deloitte’s conference held at the Westin Singapore located in Asia Square and attended by more than 200 guests in classroom setting.
For Audio Visual, dedicated speakers were introduced into the Westin ballroom for better control. Unlike most conventional meeting setting, the layout was planned meticulously with the knowledge of space design and the venue’s offering. As such, guests were able to enjoy the 14,000 Lumens Projector provided by the hotel.
Here is another insider tip on running a great conference. Have a backup laptop to mirror the slides of the presenter laptop. If the presenter laptop has any issues, quickly switch to the backup laptop. For more tips on running a great conference, read our blog post at this ‘Running a Great Conference in Singapore’
