If you missed the craziness and amazing-ness that was Artbox last year, the largest pop-up creative market in the country has returned to Singapore for the second time.
Originally from Thailand, it’s returning for the second this weekend (and the following weekend after). If you’re unfamiliar with the event (which we highly doubt), it is a wildly popular (read: it’s going to be packed) market that supports local maker-creators retailing everything from beauty, fashion, food and art.
This year, it spans over two weekends from May 25 to 27, 2018 as well as June 1 to 3, 2018 from 3pm to 11pm at the Bayfront Event Space near The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands.
With 600,000 visitors last year, it pays to have a plan on how to best tackle it. Here are six things to get excited about.
1. The venue is thrice as big this year
Thankfully, this year’s event takes up over 140,000 square feet of the Bayfront Event Space, which is almost three times the size of last year’s. Aside from more spacious walkways between booths, the extra space also means more food, more shopping and more fun. We’re expecting more than 20 shipping containers and 400 booths each weekend.
