WELCOME TO PINOT PALOOZA SINGAPORE!

 And yep, we’re just a little excited. 

We are thrilled to announce…we’re heading to Singapore for the first time and for what will be the beginning of an increasing presence in Asia over the next two years. So lock November 25th in your diaries folks, we’re going to Singapore!

Pinot Palooza can legitimately lay claim to being the largest touring Pinot Noir festival on the planet and we can’t wait to share the vinous love in Asia for the first time.

HERE is your EVENT PROSPECTUS containing further information about the event. We can’t wait for you to join us!

WHY PINOT PALOOZA?

Because it is the biggest wine drinker Pinot Noir event in the Southern Hemisphere. Because it gives you access to a new, highly engaged wine audience who are keen and motivated to get to know you and buy your product.

This is not only a great opportunity to get your brand in front a fresh audience of wine drinkers, but also a chance to sign people up to your mailing list, build direct customer relationships and make sales both during the event and, most importantly, post. And did we mention it’s fun?

WE OFFER a $20 refund of the General Admission ticket price for anyone who spends $250 or more with any one wine producer. And we take NO COMMISSION ON SALES.

Less talk & Sign Me Up!

THE PUSH INTO ASIA IS HERE!

Welcome to Singapore

As our first venture into Asia, Singapore is the perfect city to host Pinot Palooza. A vital shipping hub, the city’s food and wine scene has been booming over the past few years.

With wine consumption set to rise over 30% in the next five years, the time is now to be in the market promoting your brand. With Australia currently enjoying an impressive 38% of the market share, its vital to get out there and in front of wine drinkers.

Whilst the first instalment of the event will be smaller in comparison to other cities, we know we will grow incredibly quickly over the next few years. With the plan to do more and more events in Singapore, our audience will continue to grow and grow which will further add value to your participation.

We see the ‘fun first, facts second’ approach to wine as a global trend and know Singaporeans will embrace with gusto.

SINGAPORE 2017

THE ANNEXE STUDIO, 1 Esplanade Drive, Singapore

A great spot for our first event in Singapore, the Annexe is very much the perfect space for year one of Pinot Palooza. A space known for live music shows, it very much fits the ‘FESTIVAL’ vibe of the event. Centrally located, it is easily accessible by public transport and close to a range of hotels and other sites.

We would be lying if we said that we don’t dream of festivals like this almost daily so boy, are we excited!

ON THE DAY …

Our event philosophy is simple: make it engaging and focus on fun rather than facts.

Anchored in HOSPITALITY, we are not about baume/PH levels, trellising systems and winemaking process. Our attendees want you to tell them a story; the story of who you are, why you’re there, and what style your wine is. People connect to people after all. If they want more information, let them ask.

Engage with attendees in a way that they’ll remember you – don’t bamboozle people with wine making jargon or you’ll get a yellow card!

‘People want to learn about wine the same way in which they consume it; socially’ – Dan Sims

TICKETS

GENERAL ADMISSION: $60

($50 Early Bird)

General admission tickets allow access from 1pm till 6pm, an epic Plumm Vintage REDa Wine Glass (valued at $35) and all wine tastes.

NO TOKENS!!!

We hate tokens as we believe it turns what should be an ‘interaction’ into a ‘transaction’. By eliminating tokens and making all wine tastes included, it allows you to spend your time telling your story.

FOOD. BEER. CIDER.

You can’t live on Pinot alone. Heck, we’ve tried. Having great food is vital at events and what people demand and we’ll be looking to tap into the local legends to help us on the day.

And of course, we all need a cleansing ale every now and then (we’re looking at you, winemakers!) so we’ll make sure we have beer and cider on hand to refresh the palate.

AND MORE!

SOMM BAR

The SOMM BAR (formally BURG BAR) is where wines from not only Burgundy are offered by the glass (at almost cost price) but other regions, countries and more. Think B-Sides, limited release, Hi-Fi, Lo-Fo wines with top Sommeliers on hand to guide people through the wines on tasting at the Somm Bar and on the event floor as well.

ENGAGE. ENGAGE. ENGAGE!

Got an idea or a special promotion you’d like to do on the day? Then be sure to tell us so we can plug you in the lead up. We know those wineries who promote themselves in the lead up are the ones sought after on the day.

MARKETING & PROMOTION

With five years’ event experience under our belt, BSC has been instrumental in engaging a new wine audience. Our brand awareness, combined with our forever growing database, a strong PR push and social commerce strategy, we’re positive the inaugural Singapore event will be a sell out.

Adapting to the local market is critical which is why we’ve appointed FOOD NEWS PR to be our PR agency in Singapore. We know they’ll deliver the reach results for a SOLD OUT event thanks to their extensive event  experience.

But as always, we want to talk about you, why you do what you do and why so your input is critical. Which is why we’ll put together a detailed Social Media Cheat Sheet which will have various images (in various size formats), suggested copy and other marketing collateral to help you further spread the vinous word. We know you’re time poor so we’re here to make it easy.

Below are some insights into our marketing reach from all our events last year.

Facebook impressions

Facebook remains the most influential form of customer engagement for all our events and is the main advertising and social commerce platform. It’s where everyone is and the primary way our audience engage with us. The Singapore Event Page will be vital for engagement so ensure you note ‘attending’ or ‘interested’.
Facebook/PinotPalooza

Instagram is the main visual focus of efforts in the lead up and during live events. This where your ‘character’ really comes into play especially on event days. The more you get into the vibe, the more people share! Be sure to follow and tag us!
@PinotPalooza.sg

Less of a social platform, as it doesn’t appeal to the younger demographic, but it is an excellent tool to inform wine producers and other industry influencers as to what’s going on.

PEOPLE’S CHOICE VOTE!

The ‘PEOPLE’S CHOICE’ prize become a highly contested prize at our events and are a great way to further leverage your brand post event.

On the day, we ask guests to vote for their favourite producer and announce the winners towards the end of the event. So, if someone says ‘I really love your wine’, remind them to vote for you in the People’s Choice. iPads will be roaming throughout the day as well as stations at registration.
