THE FULLERTON HOTEL SINGAPORE COMMEMORATES 10 YEARS WITH LAUNCH OF COFFEE TABLE BOOK THE FULLERTON HERITAGE: WHERE THE PAST MEETS THE PRESENT SINGAPORE, 30 March 2011 – Senior Minister Goh Chok Tong was the Guest-of-Honour at a ceremony to commemorate The Fullerton Hotel’s 10th anniversary today. Senior Minister Goh was also the Guest-of-Honour to officiate the opening of the Fullerton Hotel in 2001. In commemoration of its 10th year anniversary, the hotel which is part of The Fullerton Heritage, published The Fullerton Heritage: Where the Past Meets the Present. The book serves to celebrate and pay tribute to the heritage gems along Singapore’s signature waterfront that had witnessed many defining moments of the city’s history, and have transformed in tandem with the city’s progress. Spanning 1.4 million square feet along the waterfront, The Fullerton Heritage is an exquisite dining and hospitality complex that combines the historical and the contemporary. It comprises The Fullerton Hotel, The Fullerton Bay Hotel, The Fullerton Waterboat House, One Fullerton, Clifford Pier and Customs House. “With The Fullerton Heritage, we wanted to bring refreshed and relevant lifestyle choices to Singaporeans and travellers while upholding and sharing with guests the historical value and legacy of this significant locale. The Fullerton Heritage is not only located at a historically significant district. At the same time, this district is part of the dynamic developments of Marina Bay that are re-creating Singapore’s skyline,” says Mr. Giovanni Viterale, General Manager of The Fullerton Heritage. “We published Where the Past Meets the Present to chronicle the fascinating anecdotes in the history and development of each of the six properties in The Fullerton Heritage.” Earlier in July 2010, The Fullerton Heritage had also launched The Fullerton Heritage Gallery at The Fullerton Hotel to showcase the history and culture of the precinct. The 800-square foot gallery features displays that include photographs, maps, stamps and philatelic materials that date back to 1932. With the support of the National Heritage Board’s Heritage Industry Incentive Programme (HI²P), The Fullerton Heritage together with the Singapore Philatelic Museum has further developed The Fullerton Heritage Trail map to guide visitors on a walking trail to discover firsthand the rich history and diverse culture of the precinct and the neighbouring civic district. Complimentary copies of the map will be made available to the public at The Fullerton Heritage Gallery. Viterale adds, “Where the Past Meets the Present encapsulates everything about what the precinct was, is today and will be. It aims to mark the progress of an area that is an important cornerstone in Singapore’s history.” -Ends- About The Fullerton Heritage The Fullerton Heritage is an exquisite dining and hospitality complex consisting of The Fullerton Hotel Singapore, The Fullerton Waterboat House, One Fullerton, Clifford Pier, Customs House and The Fullerton Bay Hotel Singapore.
