PRESS RELEASE SINGAPORE (7 February 2017) Hatched in a karaoke room, Huone is an event concept from Finland. Offering 11 different meeting rooms, some inspired by Kakslauttanen – theArtic Resort in Finland and old Clarke Quay from Singapore, Huone is Singapore’s most creative meeting space, and it’s here to disrupt the local events industry.
If you have battled the zzz monster in meetings before, you will definitely appreciate Huone. Guests can enjoy catwalks in the Runway room, act out their concepts in the Theatre room, or even brainstorm for ideas sitting on swings in the Swing Room. Huone
is designed to inspire and evoke your creativity.
Evon Söderlund, Founder and CEO of Huone Events Hotel adds, ”We are innovating meeting design and it is our goal to disrupt and shake up events industry as a whole. We are focusing on cosier spaces, providing end-to- end event needs, from event planning, food, stationery to even technology. At Huone, events and meetings are hassle-free so that guests can concentrate on what is important.”
In this age of quantifiable results, Huone helps you design and measure your Return on Meetings (ROM). Prior to event, attendees can share what they are looking to get out of the event, and hosts can then tailor the events accordingly. Post-event, hosts will be able to derive their Return on Meetings (ROM) with EVENTSOME®’s event ROI calculator.
Anticipating a rise in demand for flexible event spaces, Huone is built around flexible spaces, made possible by custom-built furniture. In fact, a 2016 study by IACC (International Association of Conference Centres) shows that 66% of event planners prefer flexible event spaces. Tables are designed in Huone’s signature hexagon shapes for flexible arrangements. Beyond furniture, guests can also select from a wide list of additional programmes, from Zumba classes to crafting of paper flowers, to enhance their events.
“I am delighted to bring Huone into Singapore. Not only is it a creative and flexible space, we also bring on board in-house event consultants to provide complimentary event advisory. For those who prefer DIY, EVENTSOME®, our online reservation platform, is a breeze to use,” said Joewin Tan, CEO of Huone Singapore.
Booking, designing, paying, managing, and measuring the success of your events will be a breeze with the setup and support from Huone. Amateurs at event planning can consult the in-house consultants who will offer advice, and if need be, structure, plan and help implement the events for the best results. Seasoned planners will be able to get everything set up and ready to go with a few button clicks on EVENTSOME®. Invites to the attendees can be sent out with the same system. Organisers will no longer need to juggle multiple vendors – caterers, event space vendors, decorators, etc., for Huone Singapore has everything on demand.
Huone Singapore is also offering guests a glimpse of Finnish goodness with the likes of Fiskars (Littala), Framery, Kyrö Distillery, and Genelec. Kyrö Distillery will be offering the world’s best gin and tonic in Huone’s premises; Genelec’s speakers will immerse guests entirely with their unparalleled sound quality, and should there be a need for a quiet space, peace can be found in Framery’s soundproof phone booths.
By having a blend of venue services and events’ organisation, Huone provides innovative, result-driven meetings and events that will generate the best Return on Meetings (ROM) for their guests. Since opening in Finland in 2012, Huone Helsinki has won 7 awards globally, including Best Customer Experience Adoption, and Best Event
Venue in Finland in 2015 and 2016.
