Artbox Singapore 2018 – Largest Creative Market Returning In May & June, At Bayfront Event Space
Artbox Singapore is returning this year on 25 to 27 May and 1 to 3 June, with its location at Bayfront Event Space, Marina Bay.
It is anticipated to be over 140,000 square feet, set to be Singapore’s largest creative market, comprising of over 400 regional and local partners.
Meanwhile, the memory of the previous Artbox Singapore still stays fresh to many…
Remember the disorganised pathways, messy queue, and lack of crowd control?
And that unbearable HEAT?
BUT the organisers ‘appear’ to have learnt their lesson, and have booked a much bigger venture in anticipation of the crowd.
We shall see.
The theme for the year is Oasis, which promises “endless variety of eateries and retail to great music and interactive entertainment”.
Talking about music, local musicians may also remember the “busk for us in-exchange for maximum branding exposure” incident during Flashbang Singapore last year. The company behind Flashbang is also the co-organiser for Artbox Singapore.
We should all learn from mistakes, and have the faith that they will do a better job with the experience from last year.
With no intention to throw a wet-blanket to the organisers, I hope more can be done for the vendors as well, whether in terms of publicity or offering better facilities and logistics.
Some of my personal wish-list for Artbox Singapore 2018 is to have more varied food choices other than several stalls serving similar items of coloured drinks and Thai Iced Milk Tea that you can find at other markets (like the Geylang Serai Bazaar).
I also look forward to real-good food, other than just instagrammable items of unicorn-coloured things and more cheese.
And hey, show our local street food some love.
