Event: STYLO Gentlemen Weekend Press Conference

Time: 6:00 – 8:00pm, 8:00pm after party
Venue: Rolls-Royce Showroom at Quill 9, Jalan Semangat
UEM Sunrise Berhad, one of Malaysia’s leading property developers and the master developer of Iskandar Puteri in collaboration with STYLO International will be hosting the inaugural Gentlemen’s Weekend– the yacht and luxury lifestyle show event.
Scheduled to take place on 26 until 28 October 2018 at Puteri Harbour, the Gentlemen’s Weekend is an event showcasing men’s lifestyle products like fashion, cigars and the big boys’ toys – helicopters, seaplanes, super cars, classic cars and luxury yachts.
Jointly organised by STYLO International, Malaysia Fashion Week (MFW) as well as the Maritime International Showcase Malaysia (MISM) as its partners, the STYLO Gentlemen’s Weekend which will be taking place from 4.00 pm to 12.00 am is set to transform Puteri Harbour into a playground for men and the perfect business networking platform for dealers, brokerage and manufacturers of these big boys’ toys.
The three-day, free admissions event promises runway presentations, vintage automobiles, and a dazzling red carpet showcase along with numerous attractions for the public. Visitors can look forward to the debut of Rolls-Royce’s Black Badge range which will be presented by Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Kuala Lumpur.
“The Rolls-Royce Black Badge range is the alter ego of the brand: edgier, darker, more assertive, bolder and more powerful. Black Badge reaches out to a different type of Rolls-Royce customer. Risk takers who are affluent and highly successful, they appreciate uncompromised performance with super luxury standards of engineering and craftsmanship”, said Dato’ Michael Ong, Managing Director of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Kuala Lumpur.
“This weekend is unique as it features what every gentleman is looking for and displayed in one very convenient location from Singapore”, said Rolv Reissiger, Chairman of the STYLO Gentleman’s Weekend.
According to Anwar Syahrin Abdul Ajib, Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of UEM Sunrise, “As a responsible developer, UEM Sunrise strives to nurture close-knit communities in all its developments. We continuously support and make an effort to build community-centric amenities as well as host high-profile placemaking events such as STYLO Gentlemen’s Weekend to strengthen the bond among the local community and visitors alike.”
“While crucial to the development of Iskandar Puteri as a city, UEM Sunrise regards these aspects as catalytic in realising its vision to go beyond merely building spaces but to build the community as well,” he added.
One of the highlights of the event includes the opening of USA-based International Seakeepers Society, in Puteri Harbour – the second branch in all of Asia after Singapore with a membership of more than 600 public figures worldwide such as James Cameron, Paul Allen and Mikhail Gorbachev.
Julian Chang, Director of The International Seakeepers Society said, “Our foray into Johor will enable us to work closely with the Malaysian Government and private companies to protect, care and find solutions to critical ocean issues together.”
The International SeaKeepers Society aims to support marine science and conservation by utilising yachts as platforms for marine research, educational outreach and to deploy oceanographic instruments.
Sadly that this the ONLY year I can’t join STYLO Event for the full 3days. I involved in another project at Kuala Lumpur and that cause I missed the most extraordinary event of the year. Any way, ALL the best to Dato Nancy Yeoh and Francis Yip, I knew you will do a great job.
Here is some wefie with some guest during the press conference.
