Why Should Your Next Event Be Out of Singapore?

Planning an event is stressful. Planning one overseas is all the more terrifying. What happens if something goes wrong? What if you left something important back home in Singapore? You’ll be in a foreign place, so how are you going to handle it? I’ll admit, there are many things to worry about when planning an event overseas. However, it comes with just as many perks.

Pernod Ricard Singapore Team – Teambuilding Day


Singapore is such a small country. We often feel suffocated and trapped in a fast-paced working life. Not to mention, many employees are stuck in an endless cycle of going to work and going home to their loved ones. Name a better way to catch a breath of fresh air and escape the exhausting daily routine than going to an entirely new setting to relax and celebrate. Trust me, your employees will thank you for giving them just exactly what they need!


As human beings, we are naturally curious. Anything new piques our interest and it awakens the little child in us that wants to explore. Doing so with your colleagues would bring about unique experiences that are sure to strengthen their interpersonal relationships. To add value, this can bring about a more united team in the working environment.


Having an event in a foreign country also eliminates the limits that we can go to, in terms of food options, entertainment, and activities that we can host. You could indulge in freshly prepared local cuisine, and cultural performances and even end it off with fireworks to close off the event in a spectacular way. For our Pernod Ricard Kickstart event, the guests enjoyed the local Indonesian cuisine and a fire dance performance by locals while embracing their colleagues throughout the whole night of partying.
