Resorts World & PA partnership: PAssion Card holders benefit!!

The latest news about partnership between Resors World & People's Association would definitely cause a buzz & more people visiting the official website of Passion Card to apply for the card. See, there would be a lot of benefits for the cardholders, thanks for the partnership.

Although it's only for 1 year, I can foresee the partnership to be renewed yearly as it would benefit both party. The PAssion cardholders would be thrilled & for sure, would make use of the benefits whereas Resorts World can count them to be their loyal supporters.

Resorts World in Sentosa is, without doubt, the kind of attraction that many would be excited to visit it NOT just one time only.

Your next neighbourhood get-together may have you whizzing around on rollercoasters and watching a circus show at Resorts World in Sentosa (RWS).

A new one-year partnership between the People's Association and the upcoming integrated resort, inked on Tuesday will see RWS providing more than $1.1 million in cash or subsidies.

The 1,800 grassroots bodies under the Association, ranging from resident committees to community development councils, can now receive funding for activities organised at the integrated resort, such as theme park outings.

Discounts and privileges will also be provided to those who hold the Association's PAssioncard. In the works are priority queuing and booking of packages.

There is also a credit scheme which will allow community bodies to organise meetings and retreats at RWS at a discount.

The deal will see each of the 84 constituencies allotted up to $6,000 in subsidies, which can go towards facilities hire, meeting packages, and tickets for the Universal Studios theme park and the rock-circus show Voyage de La Vie.

Besides this, the money will go towards the Chingay parade next year, which will see Resorts World's very own float.

But the Association is also taking pains to dissociate itself from the more controversial aspect of the integrated resort: its casino.

From Straits Times, "Resorts World partners PA".

Resorts World at Sentosa is ramping up its job hiring efforts, and hopes to fill more than 8,000 job vacancies - including that of croupiers and hotel staff - by the end of this year.

The resort said Tuesday it is on track to open on schedule next year. It already has 760 employees in its fold - of which 82 per cent are Singaporeans.

It will be carrying out a mass hiring exercise in October, and is looking at employing over 8,000 people. Some job vacancies that need to be filled include theme park operators, and casino and F&B staff.

By December, the resort hopes to have some 10,000 employees. It is working with the five Community Development Councils (CDCs) in its recruitment drive.

Tan Hee Teck, chief executive officer of Resorts World at Sentosa, said: "The CDCs have been extremely helpful in affording us to reach out to the people of Singapore and... the CDCs had been working to review all the applications for our job prospects."

Resorts World at Sentosa has also signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the People's Association (PA).

Under the agreement, Resorts World at Sentosa will commit over S$1 million in event and venue sponsorship to the PA and its Grassroots Organisations.

Tan Boon Huat, chief executive director at PA, said: "The grassroots organisations will be able to make use of the various interesting venues that are being offered by Resorts World and this is really wonderful because one of the best ways for community bonding is for people to come together and enjoy things together, enjoy fun things together and have fond memories."

With the partnership, Passion card members can also look forward to exciting perks at Resorts World at Sentosa such as priority bookings for tours at the Resorts.

Other perks include special promotions and packages, and attractive merchandise of Resorts World and Universal Studios Singapore.

600,000 Passion card members can take advantage of the partnership.

Henry Ho, chairman of Jurong Central CCC, said: "I believe that a lot of residents will be interested and very excited to join our Passion cards whereby they have incentives and discounts to enter Resort World facilities."

The People's Association and Resorts World at Sentosa will also jointly organise the "Mr and Mrs Singapore Senior Pageant" in June next year.

Resorts World at Sentosa is also participating in Chingay for the first time next year where it will have its own float.

From Channel NewsAsia, "Resorts World at Sentosa to fill over 8,000 job vacancies by year-end".

Resorts World at Sentosa on Tuesday refuted a report by an investment bank about a possible early opening.

A CIMB report on Tuesday said the 'quick pace' of construction may lead to it opening by the end of this year, instead of early next year as planned.

It also said that Genting, which owns Resorts World, may announce the actual opening date next month.

The claims were based on a recent site tour.

In response, the integrated resort issued a brief statement, saying: 'Resorts World at Sentosa is on track for a soft opening in the first quarter of 2010.'

At the joint event with the People's Association on Tuesday, the integrated resort's chief executive officer Tan Hee Teck said that they would announce the opening date in the last quarter of this year.

About 760 people have been hired so far, over 80 per cent of whom are Singaporeans.

Mr Tan said they are ramping up hiring efforts to reach 8,000 staff by October, and 10,000 by December.

From Straits Times, "'Early opening' report untrue".
