The last year was all about recovery for the industry. Event venues in Singapore happily reopened their doors to marriages, birthdays, corporate dinners, and everything in between. Still, some practices from the pandemic, such as hybrid events and co-working, stayed; ushering in a new era of #CelebrateAnywhere, which the Venuerific Choice Awards 2023 took into consideration.
For 2023, we added a new voting category, offered larger prizes than ever before, and witnessed nominations for new venues in this year’s VCAs campaign. Because of this, the Venuerific team would like to thank everyone involved in deciding this year’s VCA 2023 winners. #VCA2023 truly outshone its predecessor by redefining its 8 categories and choosing its 80 nominated venues.
As always, the VCAs wouldn’t have been possible without our 8 sponsors contributing prizes worth over $10,000. This, along with everyone’s belief in #CelebratingAnywhere propelled votes to beyond 3,000 across all categories: Most Popular Event Venue, Best Restaurant Event Venue, Best Event Space for Meetings, Rising Star Event Venue, Best Wedding Event Venue, Most Innovative Event Venue, Most Instagrammable Event Venue, and Best Kids Birthday Event Venue.
Here are the 8 venues that won in their respective categories:
