Marina Bay Sands experiences blackout among other teething problems

Marina Bay Sands experiences blackout among other teething problems

By Teo Xuanwei / Clement Mesenas | Posted: 04 May 2010 2208 hrs


SINGAPORE: The recently opened Marina Bay Sands integrated resort experienced an embarrassing hiccup Tuesday.

While the Chief Justice of New South Wales was speaking at a legal conference, stage lights went out and the sound system went dead.

It was a blackout which did not amuse the audience.

MediaCorp learnt several members left while those who stayed were moved to a smaller conference hall.

Tuesday's fiasco is not the first to plague the integrated resort.

A number of delegates who'd checked into the hotel last week complained of air conditioners not working, luggage delivered to rooms two hours after check-in, and toilets that did not flush.

Some delegates were even trapped in lifts for up to 20 minutes.

An organiser of the legal conference said the facilities have not been up to expectations.

A spokesperson said they've been working with the organisers to ensure the success of the legal conference.

Re: Marina Bay Sands experiences blackout among other teething problems

seems like both RWS & MS were rather in the rush to open ASAP, they should take their time.

both aren't having a smooth start, bad image. lol

I think they are really rushing. This kind of things dont happen in other parts of Singapore.

I believe some hiccups are common.
