Pacific World Unveils its New Selection of Venues for Meetings and Special Events

Award-Winning Destination and Event Management Company Introduces
Unusual Locations that Fully Engage and Captivate Guests, Immersing Them in the Destination Culture

SINGAPORE (July, 2017) – Pacific World – one of the world’s leading global destination and event management companies – is delighted to introduce its new selection of event venues and immersion experiences designed to fully engage and captivate guests. As creative experts at the forefront of global event planning, Pacific World strives for emotional engagement when choosing venues and creating experiences in order to drive more successful outcomes. From a gastronomic journey beneath the Barcelona Opera House to the exploration of a traditional native village in Bali, Pacific World has curated new locations and world-class events that deliver exceptional results.

“We are continuously looking for new venues that are not just cool and stunning, but will achieve our clients’ meetings and events goals,” said Patricia Silvio, Global Marketing Manager of Pacific World. “2017 events are now well under way, and our teams around the globe have been selecting and sharing their findings and choices. We have found that most of the spaces selected answer to the latest industry trends. Clients are craving for immersive experiences to engage with the local destination, culture and tradition. Each of these venues inspire planners to think outside of the box on many levels, and they are the basis to creating unforgettable experiences for years to come.”

Pacific World has identified a growing interest in private residences, natural outdoor locations and conceptual venues that highlight culture and gastronomy for meetings and events. The company’s global network of local insiders has been hunting for these special places and have discovered fascinating new venues and uncovered authentic gems.

In Paris, France, they’ve discovered a private luxury apartment located at a bespoke address nestled in the heart of the Right Bank, Marais neighborhood. This 17th century apartment offers a wonderful view overlooking one of the oldest and most elegant squares of Paris along with sumptuous living and dining rooms featuring a private art collection and elegant furniture belonging to the owner, a local art auctioneer and connoisseur. A vaulted cellar connected to the apartment by private elevator is ideal for a wine aperitif. Outfitted with the most exquisite and refined materials, this exceptional setting will be a fit for event planners looking to connect with the most sophisticated side of the city. Likewise, Pacific World has activated new events at private residences in Singapore, Barcelona, Madrid, Rome and other major European and Asian cities.

“Our clients are craving unique, immersive experiences where they can engage with the destination’s culture and traditions,” said Patricia Silvio, Global Marketing Manager of Pacific World. “We align the location and experience with our client’s goals – and devise events that engage attendees on many levels, creating an unforgettable experience of a lifetime that bonds the guests.”

For those looking to engage with culture through gastronomy in a different and creative way, one should look no further than Barcelona, Spain at the Opera Samfaina – a new venue concept combining fine cuisine and cutting-edge technology. Tucked away beneath the Barcelona Opera House along a wide avenue that runs from the heart of Barcelona, the venue creates a remarkable gastro-sensory experience influenced by the Catalan region where guests can enjoy standout dishes while immersed in stunning sounds, projections and animations. The 950 square-meter venue is divided into themed spaces, each with a different sensory environment and cuisine item. This incredible experience – which embodies Barcelonan gastronomy, culture, and traditions – was designed and produced by award-winning talents including a world-famous audiovisual artist and Michelin-starred chefs.

For a fully immersive cultural experience in Asia, why choose a single venue when you can have an entire town? Pacific World has created a wholly immersive experience in the village of Mengwi, Bali that utilizes the town’s sights, sounds, tastes and residents. Dressed in traditional costumes, villagers welcome the guests with a colorful procession and drums leading them to the Taman Ayun, a local ancient temple. Inspired by the traditional Rajalaya Royal Service festivals, colorful offerings are carried, a gamelan orchestra plays and royal torches light the route. Upon arrival, guests will enjoy Kecak and Fire Dances followed by a dinner of exquisite Balinese dishes. This memorable experience can accommodate up to 200 guests.

Mayor gives green light for Lumiere to return to London in 2018

• Lumiere London will take place from 18-21 January 2018

• More than 40 installations will light up London’s streets, buildings and public spaces, bringing millions of visitors to the city

• Mayor encourages people from London, across the UK and the world to discover the city in a new light

• Businesses and brands invited to take advantage of sponsorship opportunities to help make London shine

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has revealed the dates for Lumiere London 2018 – the capital’s largest night-time festival. More than 40 UK and international artists will transform the city and offer new perspectives on the capital’s iconic architecture, streets and landmarks.

Lumiere London 2018 will take place over four nights between 18 and 21 January 2018. Building on the phenomenal success of Lumiere London 2016, festival destinations will include King’s Cross, London’s West End (including Carnaby, Regent Street, Oxford Circus, Leicester Square, Mayfair, Piccadilly, St James’s, Fitzrovia and Westminster). Works will be exhibited both north and south of the River Thames, with Covent Garden, Victoria, South Bank and Waterloo added as new destinations for 2018.

Communities from across the capital will be able to take part in the festival. Residents of outer London boroughs will be invited to take part through schools and participation projects and volunteering schemes, which will ensure all Londoners can benefit from this extraordinary cultural event.

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: “Lumiere London 2018 will be bigger, brighter and bolder than ever before – with even more areas of our city involved and even more people expected to visit this incredible festival.

“I am particularly pleased that this year we are organising community projects in outer London boroughs to ensure that as many Londoners as possible can get involved with this world-class event.

“Lumiere London 2018 shows that London is open to people from across the world and open to creativity and ideas, and open for business. I look forward to welcoming millions of visitors to the capital and building on the success of 2016’s showpiece.

“There’s no better way to banish the January blues – so get ready to take to the streets and marvel at a dazzling array of incredible artwork and installations.”

1.3 million visitors enjoyed Lumiere London in 2016, at a time when the city is usually quiet, following the Christmas break. The ground-breaking event featured 30 installations by UK and international artists in landmark locations. Visitors to the event spent £22m and the festival was the winner of Best Debut and Best Outdoor Event of the Year at the Event Awards.

Lumiere London 2018 is commissioned by the Mayor of London and programmed and produced by Artichoke, with major support from King’s Cross and the West End Partnership. Additional support will be provided by a host of partners and funders including The Fitzrovia Partnership, South Bank and Waterloo BIDs and London & Partners.

Helen Marriage, Artichoke CEO and Lumiere London Artistic Director, said: “In January 2016, more than a million people came out on some of the coldest nights of the year to enjoy this great world city as it had never been seen before.

“I’m thrilled that the Mayor has commissioned Artichoke to programme and produce the second edition of Lumiere London. The festival is the biggest night-time event in London and will transform the capital into a giant art exhibition without walls. As a global showcase for the capital, it is an excellent sponsorship opportunity that every business and brand should consider.

“Lumiere London offers a fantastic platform for UK and international artists to reach the widest possible audiences and there are no financial barriers to attendance. Everyone is invited.”

Further details about Lumiere London 2018 are available at: More information about the festival and artists involved will be announced in coming months.

Neu ist auch der Kongresskalender, mit dem sich Veranstaltungen bis zum Jahr 2020 nach Zeitraum und Branchen filtern lassen. Zudem enthält der Kalender ausgewählte Jahreshighlights für Berlin. Der neue Blog „Berlin Meetings“ gibt praxisbezogene Erfahrungen und Tipps aus der Kongress-Welt weiter.

Outrigger Resorts Celebrates World Oceans Month with OZONE Eco-Activities
Guests can get in the OZONE with hands-on educational activities and lectures, beach cleanups, eco-tourism packages and more as part of Outrigger’s global conservation initiative

HONOLULU – Outrigger Resorts is kicking off World Oceans Month with enough coral planted, monitored and protected to cover approximately 100 football fields’ worth of coral since the 2015 launch of its global conservation initiative, OZONE (Outrigger’s ZONE).

In response to more than 60 percent of the world’s reefs depleting and under immediate threat from climate change, land-based pollution and unsustainable fishing, Outrigger’s OZONE conservation program encourages guests to become part of the solution. Coral planting in Fiji, snorkeling with a resident marine biologist in Maldives, viewing the ocean through a glass bottom boat in Mauritius, swimming with sea turtles in Hawaii, visiting a marine rehabilitation center in Thailand, and walking through an underwater aquarium tunnel in Guam are a sample of the hands-on educational opportunities offered year-round for Outrigger guests.

This June, throughout World Oceans Month, Outrigger Resorts properties worldwide are offering a diverse range of immersive activities and conservation opportunities for Outrigger guests to get in the OZONE mind-set and make a difference, even while on vacation.

We define ‘The Outrigger Way’ as caring for the guest, the host and the place – OZONE is Outrigger’s pathway of action to care for the oceans surrounding the iconic destinations at which Outrigger Resorts are located,” said Sean Dee, executive vice president and chief marketing officer for Outrigger Enterprises Group. “With help from our guests, Outrigger has grown and protected 100 football fields’ worth of coral, but this is just the beginning – the level of interest and engagement has inspired us to continue offering OZONE experiences that are eco-friendly, memorable and make a positive impact.”

OZONE Month + World Oceans Month Highlights
Outrigger Resorts’ beachfront properties are offering a range of educational and volunteer activities, family entertainment, exciting adventures and more – all in an effort to preserve the global coral systems and oceans’ biodiversity. Highlights from each destination include:
Hawaii: Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort and Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort will feature live Hawaiian music, educational exhibits, games and more at the Waikiki Aquarium on June 24.
Visitors of the Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort are invited to visit and partake in an educational tour at the Phuket Aquarium and the Phuket Marine Biological Center, a rehabilitation center for turtles and other marine life that have been injured by debris, as well as participate in a local beach cleanup. Outrigger Koh Samui Beach Resort will be planting coconut trees and doing a beach cleanup.
Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort will host an educational workshop for building and then sinking “fish houses” made of transplanted coral, which will become a coral nursery and attract a number of fish and other marine life over time. Castaway Island, Fiji will host a butterfly fish count, coastal tree planting, sunset kayak and night snorkel for guests.
Outrigger Guam Beach Resort is adjacent to and supports UnderWater World – Guam’s popular aquarium that teaches about the island’s vibrant sea life with a spectacular walk-through glass tunnel. The property will have a beach cleanup and mini fair with educational outreach, ocean crafts, raffle drawings and face painting.
Those visiting Outrigger Konotta Maldives Resort can participate in a coral restoration workshop with the resident marine biologist, have some fun with a special #worldoceansday selfie stand with props and join in family activities available through the resort.
Outrigger Mauritius Beach Resort will offer educational activities and glass bottom boat tours for guests to discover the beauty of various coral gardens in the lagoon in front of the resort.
OZONE Eco-Adventure Package
Guests at Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort and Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort are invited to explore the ocean and safely scope out the fascinating world of Hawaii’s endangered green sea turtles with the OZONE Eco-Adventure Package. The offer features a buy-one, get-one-free Snorkel Eco-Adventure Sail Tour, two admission tickets to the Waikiki Aquarium and an in-room welcome gift that includes reef-friendly sunscreen, swim goggles, and a dive mesh bag to help with collecting plastics and other debris found in the ocean or on the beach. Starting at $239 per room, per night (taxes and fees not included), reservations can be made online at

Conservation in Action
While the OZONE program will be highlighted on World Oceans Day, June 8, with special activations across all properties, Outrigger Resorts participate in year-round global and local efforts with dozens of opportunities for marine education and conservation activities. Outrigger hosts put the company’s conservation mission into action by participating in green initiatives across local communities such as marine environment educational sessions, field trips to beaches, coastal wetlands and mangroves and beach clean ups. As a result of the clean-up efforts, Outrigger’s Waikiki properties collectively recycled more than 354,000 pounds of aluminium, plastic, paper and glass.

Located on iconic beaches in Hawaii, Thailand, Guam, Fiji, Mauritius, and Maldives, Outrigger Resorts is dedicated to marine preservation and works year-round on a range of initiatives to generate awareness for the cause, as well as create opportunities for guests to help with the crucial marine ecosystems conservation. Please visit to learn more about each Outrigger Resort’s activations, as well as for more information.

Outrigger Resorts would also like to thank all its global partners for making World Oceans Month 2017 a success:
