5 March 2008, Singapore - VivoCity, Singapore's iconic retail, entertainment and lifestyle destination, has won the Best Shopping Experience - Shopping Mall, at the annual Tourism Awards. VivoCity topped the category ahead of Paragon and Wisma Atria.
In celebration of the win, VivoCity announced that the first 1,000 shoppers on both 6 and 7 March 2008 who spend $100 or more will receive $10 VivoCity gift vouchers.
"This award is a recognition of the thought, care and hard work that we, our consultants, contractors, tenants and staff, have all put in, to bring to life, our vision for VivoCity," said Wendy Low, Centre General Manager of VivoCity. "From the outset, our vision was to create a distinctively different retail and lifestyle destination, a place that would offer visitors a refreshing experience with a vibrant mix of retail and leisure options, encouraging both interaction and entertainment. It would be a place where people from all walks of life could converge and connect."
As Singapore's largest, most iconic multi-dimensional retail and lifestyle destination, VivoCity constantly stimulates and surprises its visitors with its vibrant and refreshing mix of more than 300 retail, food and beverage and entertainment outlets, of which, more than 20% are new to market concepts.
To keep visitors continually engaged and entertained, VivoCity's large recreational spaces like the Play Court, Sky Park and the waterfront Promenade, have been specially carved out of the retail areas to allow locals and tourists to enjoy their own space and leisure pursuits, while keeping them continually engaged and entertained. These spaces, which could be enjoyed by the whole family, make VivoCity a favourite destination for families.
VivoCity is not just about shopping. To engage shoppers and further enliven the outdoor landscape, a collection of artworks, designed to surprise, excite and delight visitors was installed as part of its multi-dimensional landscape. By embracing art as an integral part of the total lifestyle experience, VivoCity has taken art out of the museums and made it more accessible to the man-in-the-street.
Since its opening in October 2006, VivoCity has registered more than 40 million footfalls within the first 12 months, far surpassing its annual target of 30 million. Now with the Tourism Award win, VivoCity has been acknowledged as the favourite destination of many within Singapore's retail landscape - an accolade it is delighted to have!
