At the Carnival Cinema, a red carpet of blockbuster movies will play out on a supersized pop-up screen for guests to lay back on beanbags and cushions to enjoy and relax while watching the movie. If hunger strikes, then grab a bite (or several) from one of the many gourmet food trucks and dining options scattered across the Carnival, such as FUHU, Harry Ramsden, Il Lago, and Cosmic Café.

From sunset onwards, the Starlight Carnival will also be a space filled with melodies. A talented line-up of musicians, including Aidan Soloist, VIBES, McBE Duo and Double Aze, will take to the pop-up Gazebo stage to provide the soundtrack and mood for the twilight fiesta. And what carnival would be complete without some fun and challenging carnival games? Guests could test their luck and skills at a variety of game kiosks like Shooting Star, Milky Way Spin, Asteroid Toss, and Topple Galaxies.

Guests who want to party a little bit harder can head to the Oktoberfest Hall, held at a separate area of the Carnival with its own set of food, drink and entertainment offerings. Taking the stage at the Oktoberfest Hall at the Carnival will be tributes to three of the greatest rock bands ever - the Gipsy Kings, The Beatles and Queen - providing a unique soundtrack to the outdoor festival for three consecutive weekends.

For its final weekend, a scary season makeover for a special Halloween Weekend takes over as the Carnival embraces Halloween with jack o'lanterns, zombies, cobwebs and all the other elements of a truly scary Halloween evening.

November 2 follows suit with the first-ever Starlight Carnival with the debut of Zouk Live. Things kick off at 3pm, as Zouk Genting x Épique Fitness collaborate on a unique music-meets-movement session. Activities such as HIIT In The Highlands, Piloxing, and Mayhem Jam with thrilling soundtrack of EDM anthems will be sure to get the heart pumping and blood flowing for the long evening ahead. Zouk Live starts proper with Malaysia's most famous DJ duo Bate stepping on stage at 9pm followed by headliner DJ Sura. Bate will then carry the party into Zouk Genting for the after-party where they will be supported by Zouks resident DJs Joshen and Rowena, regular performers with the world's most famous acts.

Artyzen Hospitality Group has Growth Across Asia in its Sights

- Seven pipeline projects across mainland China and Singapore to be operated by 2023 Artyzen indicates its longer term intentions to grow its global footprint

HONG KONG, Oct. 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Artyzen Hospitality Group, a Hong Kong-based international hotel management company, has indicated its ambitious expansion plans with the announcement of seven pipeline projects to be completed across mainland China and Singapore in the next three years with further sights set on global expansion.

Since its inception in 2013, Artyzen Hospitality Group has been steadily gaining momentum as a hotel owner and operator with a strong portfolio of brands offering unique lifestyle hospitality concepts that embrace local communities that suit a cross section of travelers. This portfolio includes Zitan, a luxury brand capturing Chinese modernity, Artyzen Hotels and Resorts that brings local heritage and craftsmanship to life, and Artyzen Habitat which connects local communities and vibrant public spaces. It currently operates six hotels and will be launching seven properties for its Artyzen Hotel and Artyzen Habitat brands in Singapore and across mainland China including in Qiantan Shanghai, Lingang Shanghai, Taopu Smart City Shanghai and Hengqin Island in Zhuhai.

Robbert van der Maas, President of Artyzen Hospitality Group, said: "Our growth strategy is centred on developing hotels in gateway and capital cities that have potential in the areas of tourism and business. The locations we are developing hotels in are also strategically important because of their proximity to commercial centres and hubs, cultural landmarks and entertainment destinations. Our hotels will complement travelers' experiences with hospitality options that embody art reflecting the culture of the destination, thoughtfully designed spaces and culinary delights. The birth of our first two Artyzen Habitat hotels in Beijing and Shanghai have resulted in rapid growth of the brand and we will now bring our first Artyzen branded hotels to market."

Artyzen Hospitality Group is developing Artyzen Habitat hotels in Taopu, and Hengqin. Notably, it has two significant properties under development in Lingang and Qiantan. Both of these developments are located in 'cultural clusters' within Shanghai and aim at delivering immersive cultural experiences that help guests build connections with the local community.

Artyzen has partnered up with Lujiazui Group to bring two very exciting integrated developments, which will include residential properties, convention centres, cultural centres and hotels, to market. This partnership enables the group to streamline business processes and achieve cost efficiencies.

Lingang and Qiantan are up and coming locations in Shanghai and will offer travelers access to multiple cultural facilities and amenities. The Lingang cluster features an Artyzen hotel, an Artyzen Habitat as well as a state of the art Convention Centre located in the Lingang New City Development, a city that is pinned to redefine the future of cities in mainland China. The coastal area is poised to be one of the best integrated developments in Shanghai with several theme parks and with close proximity to Disneyland and the new China (Shanghai) Pilot Free Trade Zone Lin-gang Special Area.

"We are also developing two hotels across two plots in Qiantan, Artyzen NEW BUND 31 and Artyzen Habitat. The NEW BUND 31 is notable because it will be a multi-purpose destination that encompasses the best lifestyle choices and cultural dynamics at the heart of the New Bund International Business District – a burgeoning international financial centre circled by residences, schools, leisure facilities and commercial complex with a cutting-edge cultural centre. Our goal is to establish a thriving arts scene in alignment with the 'Green, Grand and Global' vision set for the district," said Mr van der Maas.

Artyzen Hospitality Group is also undertaking its first hotel in Singapore with the development of Artyzen Cuscaden Singapore. Located in the prestigious Orchard neighbourhood, the hotel will bring Singapore's Peranakan culture into its design in partnership with renowned architect Ong&Ong Pty. Ltd. and interior designer firm Nicholas Graham & Associates.

"It is important for us to partner with designers and architects that can ensure that we deliver on our vision of creating culturally rewarding and nuanced experiences to our guests. We chose to work with

Ong&Ong and Nic Graham because they share our passion to reflect Singapore's unique environment and culture, and to reinvent key elements from the rich Peranakan culture and history into the building, interior design, and our service philosophy," said Mr van der Maas.

Mr van der Maas went on to say that the Group has longer term plans to grow its global footprint: "We believe there is a strong opportunity to lead the hospitality industry in developing hotels that are rooted in local cultures to meet the forever evolving demands and preferences for both business and leisure travelers. As such, we are actively assessing opportunities in Australia, Japan, the Maldives, South East Asia and Portugal to grow our footprint beyond Asia. We are confident that our brands and boutique operations truly appreciate and embrace what these culturally rich destinations have to offer."

Artyzen Hospitality Group will be operating 13 hotels, with close to 3,000 rooms in Beijing, Shanghai, Singapore, Macau, and Hawaii, including those under construction.

FHA-Food & Beverage releases industry report on health and wellness trends' impact on functional food & drinks market

SINGAPORE, Oct. 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Increasing consumer focus on health and personal wellbeing has led to many food and beverage companies reformulating their products with functional food ingredients to cash in on the trends. In the latest FHA Insider Special report, 'Healthy trends driving demand for functional food products in Asia' released today, industry experts shared their insights into the growing market for functional food ingredients.

FHA Insider Special report - Healthy trends driving demand for functional food products in Asia
FHA Insider Special report - Healthy trends driving demand for functional food products in Asia

The report, developed by FHA-Food & Beverage, the largest international F&B industry event in Asia, examined how these trends are driving demand for certain functional food products such as juices and dairy products. Research from Euromonitor International found that increasing incomes across the Asia-Pacific region is spurring demand for more premium products, and food companies developing and pushing products and flavours using exotic and healthier ingredients. Aileen Supriyadi, Research Analyst for Euromonitor noted that fortified ingredients are being incorporated into various product categories such as savoury snacks and juices. 

Co-founder of Remedy Kombucha, Australian kombucha producer, Emmet Condon commented, "There's certainly potential for growth as more people around the world cotton on to the benefits of live cultured foods and the health risks posed by the excess consumption of sugar loaded soft drinks. No matter where you are in the world, people are looking for healthier, tastier options when it comes to fizzy drinks."

Morinaga, a Japanese dairy products and functional food ingredients manufacturer is banking on increased consumer awareness and developing live culture strains with specific health targets. "The probiotics market in Asia-Pacific region has witnessed an increase in the new product development activities wherein novel and specialty strains are incorporated to achieve targeted health benefits," said Dr Wong Chyn Boon, Research Associate, International Division, Morinaga Milk Industry Co. While countries like China and Japan holds a prominent share in the market, the demand for probiotics functional food and dietary supplements in the South-east Asia region is expected to remain promising for the next five years, she added.

Functional food and drink products are not the only things that are showing up in grocery stores and retailers. Across the globe, the culinary world is also venturing into the use of functional food ingredients in menus. Chefs in F&B establishments such as restaurants and hotels have begun to be more mindful of the ingredients they are purchasing and using.

"For a long time, food has been thought of as a form of entertainment, and restaurants changed the scene with creative plating techniques and even unique dining experiences," said Lucas Glanville, Executive Chef of Grand Hyatt Singapore. "But while food as a form of entertainment is still important, it is very encouraging to see that diners are starting to think more about what they put into their bodies."

Glanville added that Grand Hyatt ensures that every meal fulfils its natural purpose to provide fuel to the body as part of the hotel's holistic approach towards wellbeing.

FHA-HoReCa releases industry report on technology growth in rising Asian baked goods market

SINGAPORE, Oct. 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- In a Euromonitor forecast, the Asian baked goods market is expected to grow from a value of US$74 billion this year, to almost four per cent year-on-year up to 2024. Bakeries and pastry shops are expected to be investing in technology to automate their production lines to meet rising demand. In the latest FHA Insider Special report, 'Baking industry embrace technology for transformation' released today, industry experts shared their insights into global purchase trends of bakery equipment and how bakeries and food professionals are using technology to grow their business.

FHA Insider Special report - Baking industry embrace technology for transformation
FHA Insider Special report - Baking industry embrace technology for transformation

 

The report, developed by FHA-HoReCa, Asia's most comprehensive industry event hospitality and foodservice supplies, investigated the factors driving industry growth, and the increasing need for automation or technology upgrades. Attributing the growth to "expansion of distribution channels, manufacturing facilities, and product innovations in terms of flavours and product types in various countries", Aileen Supriyadi, Research Analyst for Euromonitor, explained that, "The growth is also pushed by the growing artisanal baked goods production as consumers are demanding fresher and healthier products, including products that have no preservatives, low sugar, or lower trans-fat."

"We see a market full of opportunities," said Achille Sassoli, Market Development Director of the Carpigiani Group, a global manufacturer of production equipment for fresh ice cream and pastry ingredients. In addition to pastry shops adding artisanal gelato in all its variations, he pointed out that restaurants are introducing gelato and sorbet in their menu as a dessert, and as an element in their recipes.

Demand aside, Kelvin Teo, Regional Sales Director of Swiss equipment manufacturer Rondo for Southeast Asia and Legal Representative for China, said that factors such as manpower shortage, increased hygiene requirement and regulations, the need to maintain consistent quality even when producing high volume of baked goods, and the economy of scale brought about by increasing production levels are also strong factors for bakery operators to upgrade their equipment.

While improved productivity gains can be made from technology investment, the report touched on the user perspective as well. Chef Gary Lim, President of the Singapore Pastry Alliance, felt that chefs should not be overly reliant on machinery and should instead work on enhancing their knowledge and skills in the production kitchen environment. Pointing out some of the disadvantages such as the high cost of equipment, he also noted the long-term impact on the authenticity of the trade if the business becomes fully dependent on machinery production.

"Machines can't totally replace humans due to certain jobs which still require a human touch. But on the other hand, it can help to increase production volume and quality, better consistency and reduce physically labour-intensive jobs to promote company profit," he said.

Concurring, Chef Daniel Tay, founder of Singapore-based Foodgnostic, a private label food manufacturer specialising in cakes said, "Skills are always important. You must have the skills first, before you can use the technology."

Wang added that in the light of this, China's liquor industry should continually expand its development vision and deeply integrate with international peers via cultural exchanges, mutual learning, and brand cooperation, which will gradually enhance liquor aroma.

"Cultural creativity has a natural relationship with the expression of liquor quality. Good life not only needs aroma and taste of the liquor but also endows it with more spiritual and creative expression," said Song Shuyu, Vice President and Secretary-General of CADA.
