ORCHARD ROAD BUSINESS ASSOCIATION: About ORBA > Who are we

 

Who are we

Since 1998, Orchard Road Business Association (ORBA) has represented the interests and welfare of businesses along Orchard Road. Through the creation of activities, business development, promotion and marketing, ORBA preserves, promotes, improves and facilitates businesses on Orchard Road. ORBA also organises memorable events for visitors and tourists to Orchard Road, such as the Christmas Light-Up @ Orchard, Fashion Steps Out @ Orchard and Rev-Up @ Orchard. The Christmas Light-Up @ Orchard is an annual signature event that heralds the start of the festive season here in Singapore, which many look forward to as an unforgettable experience.

Membership in ORBA is open to Orchard Road stakeholders, as well as non-stakeholders who have an affiliation to lifestyle business along Orchard Road. There are currently more than 60 members in the Association, including the owners and management of shopping malls, departmental stores, leading retailers, hotels and restaurants.

ORBA operates under the auspices of the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) with its administration entrusted to an Executive Committee (EXCO) comprising some of Orchard Road’s key stakeholders. The EXCO is headed by Mrs Sng Ngoi May, Executive Director of Orchard 290 Ltd (Owner and Manager of Paragon Shopping Centre) as Chairman.

We initiate change with the aim to continually excite people with exceptional experiences, be it for tourists, regular shoppers, retailers or building owners.

The Association aims to:

  • Study and improve the business environment of Orchard Road, through the creation of activities, business development, promotion and marketing.
  • Facilitate new business collaborations and/or alliances between both stakeholders and non-stakeholders.
  • Assist with Orchard Road’s development, activities, and other public issues.
  • Promote the welfare of businesses on Orchard Road.
  • Represent members and deal with matters concerning the Association.

What is it

Place Management is an approach for getting all stakeholders within an area / precinct to work together to enhance the way people in the area work, live, stay, shop, play and dine. Hence, we want to enhance this collaborative effort dedicated to making sure that Orchard Road:

  • Is attractive & well-kept;
  • Is marketed effectively to the outside world;
  • Is providing something more than shopping to attract visitors; and
  • Continues to be a top destination for tourists and locals alike.
 

About the Study

The Orchard Road Place Management Consultancy Study will take place from November 2011 – June 2012, and will involve a series of engagement programmes with public and private sector stakeholders. The information obtained about the current business landscape such as challenges and sentiments will then be used in a recommendation report.

The study has been structured to include participation by Orchard Road’s key stakeholders. Business owners and stakeholders living and working within the precinct are strongly encouraged to participate.

This initiative is in yours, and your businesses’ interests, as its success depends on the effective management and promotion of Orchard Road.

 

Get involved

We’re interested in understanding challenges and sentiments that you face as a stakeholder on Orchard Road so that we can better address them. We have A Great Street. Help us to make it better.
