Grand Ballroom of St. Regis Kuala Lumpur to Have 270-Degree LED Digital Canvas

The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur, scheduled to open in May 2016, will feature a 270-degree LED digital canvas around its Grand Ballroom.

The 208-key hotel, the first St. Regis in Kuala Lumpur, has over 10,000 sqm of function space spread over four floors and 16 versatile meeting rooms.

The largest is the 1,300 sqm Grand Ballroom with the digital canvas made up of 47 LED screens that surround its circumference.

Ms Anne Scott, General Manager, said, The designers have taken great pains to think about how The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur can offer its guests an unparalleled experience and thus the idea of the LED digital canvas was inspired. I believe we are the first hotel in the region with the ability to give event participants the sense of being totally immersed in the presentation because it is being projected all around them not only through the LED screens but also through the supporting state of the art light and sound system that can be programmed to change with the mood and tone of the video or images.

To enjoy the cinematic quality effect, guests can expect to pay MYR 250,000 per use for the LED digital canvas. In addition, the Grand Ballroom has direct access to a private lift large enough for a car to be transported into the room.

This makes the venue ideal for car model launches or any large scale product launches. Imagine how impressive it would be for the actual car to be displayed in the middle of the room while a video of it driving round the room is played on the LED screens, Ms Scott added.

Another highlight is The Salon, which is specially designed for weddings and VIP events. The room has a lounge and dressing room for the bride or personalities to change or refresh; and offers a live video feed from the Grand Ballroom so they stay well connected to the main event.

The junior ballroom, The Astor Room, is accessible through a separate entrance for private drop-offs and has its own dedicated pre-event space for cocktails or breakouts. In terms of outdoor function space, the hotel has a dual level rooftop bar and lounge called Crystal, which has an LED media wall that runs alongside the pool, and can also be used for events.

The challenge of most event organisers is that they constantly have to outdo themselves in order to impress their clients and that means always having to come up with something new. We believe The St. Regis Kuala Lumpurs versatile event spaces, state-of-the-art technology and equipment, allows them to be very creative, Ms Scott said.

The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur expects its main markets to include Hong Kong, Singapore, Indonesia and China and also some business from Europe and Australia.
