Hilton Singapore Orchard, the largest Hilton hotel in Asia Pacific, is delighted to introduce its new meeting space, Smart Studio. Strategically located on Level Eight, Smart Studio was designed to capture optimal city views and natural lighting, setting the stage for inspiring and productive gatherings. The name reflects its purpose: a state-of-the-art space tailored to meet the demanding needs of collaboration and content creation. Significantly, each room in Smart Studio offers seamless connectivity with all hotel event spaces like the Grand Ballroom, unlocking unprecedented opportunities for event planners and participants.
The Smart Studio bolsters Hilton Singapore Orchard’s positioning as the third largest MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conferences, and Exhibitions) hotel venue in Singapore, further cementing its position as a top destination for business and events. With the addition of the Smart Studio, guests now have seamless access to a suite of accommodation from the hotel’s inventory of larger and more flexible room categories that were introduced early this year and the Grand Ballroom on Level Six, all of which are housed within the same tower of the hotel.
The five versatile function rooms are each sized approximately 60 sqm, together adding an additional 296 sqm to the hotel’s current total event space inventory of over 2,400 sqm.
Designed for the Region’s Thriving Economy and Business Needs
“We planned and designed the new Smart Studio meeting space based on our insights into our business guests and their current and evolving needs”, explains Cedric Nubul, general manager, Hilton Singapore Orchard. “The new space augments and amplifies our established large space capabilities – such as our ballrooms and our Smart Oasis meeting space on Level Five – and gives our guests new options to deliver a special experience to smaller- and mid-sized gatherings. We see growing demand for groups of up to 40 participants that could span pre-conference leadership meetings through to focused breakout sessions. Overall, this move positions us to meet the evolving needs and demands of event planners and businesses in Singapore and the thriving Southeast Asia region.”
Designed by Avalon Collective, who is also responsible for the contemporary and modern design for much of the hotel, Smart Studio boasts the right blend of avant-garde elegance and cutting-edge audio-visual technology.
Each room has integrated the latest audio-visual and meeting technology to ensure seamless outcomes for any programme or agenda. Importantly, each room’s 98-inch LED screens with video conferencing capabilities, the most advanced technology of any event space in Hilton Singapore Orchard, can seamlessly integrate into programmes anchored around the hotel’s ballroom facilities to deliver unparalleled flexibility and accessibility to event planners and participants engaged in breakout sessions.
This seamless level of connectivity between each meeting space demonstrates how the new Smart Studio complements and enhances Hilton Singapore Orchard’s ability to cater to events of varying sizes.
An elegantly designed communal lounge foyer that exudes a cosy, residential feel to make guests feel at home is also available for guests to engage in warm and meaningful conversations outside of the meeting rooms. It is also in this lounge area where guests
can find an always-on Butler’s Pantry stocked with healthy snacks and homemade beverages that participants can enjoy throughout the day. The pantry is also equipped with induction cookers for more elaborate culinary experiences, which can be tailored to the needs of the participants by the hotel’s culinary team.
Inviting Guests and Attendees to Connect Deeper with Singapore
The Smart Studio’s namesake is inspired by the premise of studios being places for the study of an art and where creativity is celebrated. In that same vein, the designers took great care to ensure every design element, from fluted panels to the botanical-inspired colour tones, captured the essence of Hilton Singapore Orchard while maintaining a distinctive design that is special to this new and unique space where creativity can flourish.
Importantly, the hotel has kept a strong element of this being a uniquely Singapore space to help keep meeting attendees focused and grounded by knowing they are in a place unlike anywhere else. This is exemplified through the layout of the Smart Studio that not only spotlights the views, but also invites meeting attendees to experience a taste of Singapore’s remarkable heritage and teaches guests a little about Singapore’s local flower species with the names of each meeting room like Amaryllis and Frangipani.
Offering a Purposeful, Sustainable, and Carbon-Neutral Meeting Experience
Hilton Singapore Orchard has fully integrated Hilton’s Meet with Purpose programme into our operations, and the programme guides the hotel’s commitment to environmental, social, and governance (ESG) principles. Guests can discover how this programme can make their meetings and events unique, memorable, and impactful. Whether it is through initiatives to neutralise carbon dioxide emissions via carbon credits with ClimeCo or practices of food donation, the hotel offers options that make a positive contribution to our planet and communities.
In addition, the Hilton LightStay Meeting Impact Calculator empowers guests and event planners with insights into their event’s environmental impact, providing a customised estimate and suggesting ways to reduce carbon footprint. This supports Hilton Singapore Orchard’s belief that every meeting or event held at the hotel should not only be a celebration of connection and collaboration but also an embodiment of our shared responsibility to protect the planet for future generations.
Hilton Singapore Orchard ensures that all guests enjoy an eco-friendly experience through energy-efficient technologies and a commitment to eliminating single-use plastics. Additionally, the property is proud to be the first hotel in Singapore to introduce an on-site water filtration system, which purifies and bottles premium drinking water in reusable glass bottles. These special considerations will continue to be woven into all events and experiences held at the hotel, including ones in the Smart Studio. In this way, each attendee of a business event at Hilton Singapore Orchard can be confident in the hotel’s commitment to reducing their environmental footprint.
