Shopping Time: CapitaLand launches its first 24-hour experiential party in Decentraland, presented by DBS

CapitaLand is the first mall operator in Singapore to throw the coolest digital bash for 24 hours from 19 June 6pm to 20 June 5pm (VIP session starts at 5pm) in Decentraland. Presented by DBS and in collaboration with Bandwagon Labs, the first-of-its-kind experiential party sets CapitaLand on a new trajectory – headed straight into the metaverse.

CapitaVerse on Decentraland opens a whole new dimension of multiverse offerings. Lose your inhibitions with your metaverse avatars and explore four levels of interactive and immersive discovery points with live music performances, brand discovery docks, CapitaVerse-exclusive Aura Wearable NFT, and virtual hunts with attractive real world prizes to snag.

Mr Chris Chong, CEO of Retail & Workspace (Singapore & Malaysia), CapitaLand Investment, said: “CapitaLand takes pride in anchoring our malls as experiential lifestyle destinations. Elevating our record of delighting shoppers with innovative omnichannel programming to the next level, we are thrilled to bring our shoppers on an exciting journey to the metaverse, complemented with real world privileges across CapitaLand malls. Through CapitaVerse, we are pleased to redefine shopper engagement together with our tenants Zouk Group and adidas, along with our industry partners DBS, Bandwagon Labs and Mastercard. CapitaLand looks forward to continue our pursuit of creating new memorable retail experiences for our shoppers.”

Mr Anthony Seow, Head of Payments & Platforms, Consumer Banking Group (Singapore) at DBS added that, “As emerging technologies gain in momentum, we believe shared human experiences in a digital environment will become part of our everyday lives. We are proud to partner like-minded companies like CapitaLand who seize opportunities to innovate and experiment. In creating a metaverse environment where real and digital lives can meet and bringing these experiences to the public, CapitaLand is paving the way with CapitaVerse.”
