Bintan Lagoon Resort in Indonesia will open its conference centre by the end of February 2013 which will allow to welcome up to 1,300 delegates.
SINGAPORE- It was certainly the missing element to the successful resort island of Bintan, an integrated resorts complex in Indonesia, built just opposite to Singapore and linked by ferry to Singapore Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal.
By the end of February, Bintan will finally have its own conference centre, built within Bintan Lagoon Resort. The building will comprise three floors and will feature a pillarless hall that will be able to accommodate up to 1,300 people.
The conference centre is expected to strategically position the island as a MICE location for large conferences and business groups. This new opening follows last year’s launch of the direct private ferry terminal and immigration centre which offers direct transfers between the resort and Singapore’s Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal.
Robert Ramey, managing director of Mozaic Hotels & Resorts, the management company of the 473-key beach resort, said: “The new Conference Centre will cover a combined…area of 1,858.1m2. Bintan Lagoon Resort will play a pivotal role in hosting sizeable company meetings, product launches and other exciting events.
“This brand new facility will not only significantly enhance our ability to draw large conferences and business groups, but also strategically position Bintan as a desirable location for meeting and incentive organisers.”
Henry Ng, vice president of sales, Mozaic Hotels & Resorts, added: “The convenience of a private ferry service, fast track immigration clearance, and 473 deluxe rooms and villas will enable us to exceed the demands of larger MICE groups.”
Meanwhile, an introductory offer is available for the new facility. Meeting and conference packages are priced from S$45 (US$36.40) nett per person.
