INDUSTRY.co.id - INDONESIA (4 May 2023) – Marina Bay Sands is reinventing the visitor experience through a series of back-to-back festivals that aim to inspire and deepen guest engagement through the celebrations of food, wellness, music and fashion.
Revolving around key festivals on Singapore’s tourism calendar and marquee events taking place on property, the year-round series witnessed an eventful debut in January 2023 with ‘Where Art Takes Shape’, a 10-day celebration organised in tandem with the Singapore Art Week.
Come May, let gastronomical aspirations take flight through ‘Where Your Senses Feast’, a lively food and wine festival that will see the integrated resort’s (IR) existing venues transform to give rise to experiential dining concepts featuring a Six Star Dinner, an unprecedented culinary experience at ArtScience Museum, and a French wine cave.
In June, enter an urban wellness haven with ‘Where Mind and Body Connect’ to partake in a variety of rejuvenating workshops, before rounding off July with ‘Where Music Takes Over’, a revelling music-themed festival.
Paul Town, Chief Operating Officer at Marina Bay Sands, said, “We are excited to set the stage for the thematic festivities to come this year. Not only will we leverage our distinctive venues, but we will also join hands with titans of industry to present compelling, never-seen-before activations for our guests.”
