SINGAPORE - voco hotels – a premium collection brand from IHG Hotels & Resorts – will present its first pop up in Singapore along Orchard Road from Thursday, 20 January 2022 to Wednesday 26 January 2022. Two activations will be located outside ION Orchard and voco Orchard Singapore. Consumers will be able to access collaboration content produced by local creatives and brands at the pop up. They are also invited to participate in a staycation social giveaway with an opportunity win 52 weekends of stays at voco Orchard Singapore and more prizes.
voco hotels are bold, contemporary and inviting, with playful touches throughout. The pop-up will introduce highlights of a typical voco hotel room – think plush bedding and a cosy nook, which encourage guests to indulge in ‘Me Time’.
Introduced for the first time in Singapore, voco hotels bedding makes use of over 150 recycled plastic bottles, turning plastic waste into a sustainable sleep. The fabric that cases the voco hotels bedding is also produced in line with the Better Cotton Initiative to support sustainable cotton harvesting. The name, voco, means ‘to invite’ and ‘call together’, representing the brand’s thoughtful and playful nature, and ability to offer meaningful connection. The vibrancy and playfulness of voco Hotels attracts guests who are confident to be themselves; in line with this philosophy, throughout the duration of the pop-up, voco hotels invited local creatives and brands to spend time inside the hotel room, doing what they do best. Unapologetically themselves, they will use the room to create, unwind, and simply be.
The line-up includes:
- David Yeung | Friday, 21 January, 5pm-6pm
Campari Brand Ambassador, David Yeung, will be conducting a live cocktail masterclass, walking viewers through the cocktail conceptualisation process of one of voco Orchard Singapore’s Signature Cocktails, featuring Wild Turkey Bourbon. David will also foray into the history of Orchard Road and Nutmeg—the essence that ties in voco Orchard Singapore’s mission to always “Stay Interesting”.
