Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok’s 633.65-litre Negroni breaks a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title for the largest Negroni cocktail
The achievement kicks off Negroni Week 2022 and other festivities planned in celebration
Kicking off Negroni Week in Thailand, Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok in Langsuan, the first property under IHG Hotels & Resorts’ luxury boutique brand, Kimpton Hotels and Restaurants, in South East Asia, yesterday announced its title as the newly crowned creator of the largest negroni cocktail at a ceremony attended by a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS adjudicator.
Clocking in at a breathtaking/remarkable 633.65 litres – 129.65 litres more than the previous record-holder – the record-breaking classic Italian cocktail is composed of one part each of gin, Campari and Rosso Vermouth, then garnished with orange peel. On 12 September, bar staff combined an equal part of Bulldog London Dry Gin, Campari bitters and Cinzano 1757 Rosso Vermouth in a specially built acrylic container surrounded by ice. Measuring 1.4 x 1.7 metres, it was displayed at the hotel’s outdoor garden, Urban Oasis.
At the outdoor stage, attendees watched with bated breath as the last measures of spirits were poured in and declared to be the largest Negroni cocktail by a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS adjudicator, Kazuyoshi Kirimura. At this, the crowd erupted into cheers.
“We’re thrilled to have kicked off the 10th Anniversary of Negroni Week in Thailand with a bang. At Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok, creating memorable Kimpton Moments that unite has always been at the core of what we do, and it was truly wonderful to see Urban Oasis and Bar.Yard bustling with revellers from all around Thailand who have gathered to mark this milestone with us. As a team who champions heartfelt, human connections, we are proud to have brought about an unforgettable experience and reason to celebrate,” said Patrick Both, Area General Manager, Luxury & Lifestyle, Thailand.
Commenting on the title award, Bars & Beverage Manager, Stanislav Andruskevic said: “Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok’s vibrant beverage programme is bold and inventive by nature, which lets our bartenders push the boundaries of craft cocktail creation. The Largest Negroni Cocktail is just a taster of what we achieve in Ms.Jigger, CRAFT and Bar.Yard on the daily, and we’re excited to unveil the special Negroni cocktails we’ll be serving up for the rest of Negroni Week.”
CEO perspective on "Why building a strong culture is essential for growing business internationally"
As we all know, most growing and stable companies have a management team that is far-sighted and able to manage each part of the organization well. But there is one thing that some people may forget to think about, and that is "Corporate Culture"
This has always been part of any great organization. Having a strong and clear corporate culture is like having an arrow that guides everyone in the company to understand the true purpose of the organization. It allows employees to work together to create something that meets the goals set by the organization.
We had the opportunity to talk with Mr.Kosuke Sogo, CEO and co-founder from AnyMind Group, an end-to-end commerce enablement company that operates in 17 major cities in 13 countries about the perspective on how to build great corporate culture and choosing people to join with AnyMind's culture.
Mr.Kosuke Sogo told us that “Since we started the business, we have focused on building an international culture. Both founders had worked outside of Japan for some time, and we were able to fully grasp the unique nuances and cultural differences - not just in everyday life but also in the workplace, and that’s why we decided to foster an international culture from the start. Case in point, we currently have over 27 different nationalities working in our company. We think that we can build a strong and clear corporate culture, because in the beginning the organization was very small and it was very easy for everyone to interact and speak with the CEO and be aligned with the company directions and way of thinking. By being able to chat with the CEO on a daily basis, everyone had first-hand experience on the culture of the company. Everyone moved together easily in one direction, and we grew tremendously”.
What we can see from AnyMind is although AnyMind has a strong culture in terms of the way of working, they didn't neglect the cultural diversity of each market, they embrace and respect each other. Another thing they focus on is localization, so they try to adapt their culture to AnyMind’s culture to empower the people as well as the overall culture of the company.
When we talk about corporate culture, what follows is the selection of people that the organization thinks can coexist with those cultures or not. In this section, Sogo commented that “As our business is very broad, we recruit people with various areas of expertise. However, they also have to align with our company values, and these are evaluated during our recruitment process. I also believe that culture fit is the most important factor when choosing to hire people for a job. Having a poor culture fit will mean that a person can easily feel out of place and leave for another company. Our values provide a guide for candidates on what we’re looking for attitude-wise”.
AnyMind is one of the most successful and culturally focused organizations. Making it one of the top companies that the new generation would like to work at. AnyMind also sees that the new generation can drive the organization towards its goals as well, because the younger generation of employees has the drive and adaptability to be updated and keep up with the newest tech and solutions while the previous generation has the experience and know-how to make good decisions. At AnyMind we have combined these two to create a balance of both to grow our business.
Sogo concluded that “In AnyMind, your age doesn't matter. What matters is the results you bring to the company. Therefore, we respect everyone's opinion and ideas for innovation despite how long they stayed in the company or industry. Therefore, we try to create an environment where employees feel most comfortable and safe to speak up their thoughts without fear of punishment. That is how the culture can thrive in AnyMind and quality work can be produced”.
This way of thinking applies to all markets where AnyMind operates. So we can see that AnyMind can easily drive the organization to the international level. This is another example that shows that the stability of corporate culture can really support business growth.
Representing the ten unifying principles of the universe, the exhibition “The New Ark “ premieres September 1, 2022. at Thailand’s River City Bangkok, a major art and antiques center.
“The New Ark” features 13 international artists who have created projects that address universal unity -- as expressed in the artwork with the same name, created by Director Jacq.
The exhibition and featured artwork are funded by a new international organization Art Can Die, founded to provide financial support to projects that otherwise might not receive funding. This is achieved by leveraging the power of blockchain and cryptocurrencies, and using the process of tokenization, Art Can Die offers a safe and efficient platform where art lovers, crypto enthusiasts, and investors can invest in quality artwork.
New functionality includes referral code management, UGC management, and the ability to discover trending influencers and posts
AnyMind Group, an end-to-end commerce enablement company, has today announced the launch of additional functionalities for its influencer marketing platform, AnyTag, that enable marketers to better discover user-generated content (UGC), trending influencers and posts, and take action, and manage and track referral codes for influencers.
With these functions, an AnyTag user can now identify trending influencers to work with and trending posts for content ideas, run campaigns and measure conversions, and acquire UGC that can be used as creatives on e-commerce channels for greater authenticity. Also, AnyTag users can now better leverage influencers for affiliate marketing by uploading, managing, and tracking referral codes for influencers through AnyTag, which also enables the attribution of e-commerce sales to individual influencers.
The additions come at a time when the company is gearing its various platforms, including AnyTag, for next-generation commerce - the next step in how businesses operate - where commerce can be done out of a single platform, is borderless and open, and data can be maximized freely across traditionally-siloed business functions.
On the company’s overall plans, Kosuke Sogo, CEO and co-founder of AnyMind Group, said: “This year, we have so far launched platforms for conversational commerce and e-commerce management, but also continued to improve existing products such as AnyTag, AnyCreator, and AnyManager, gearing all of these products towards an interconnected future.”

I count myself lucky to have been invited to the Grand Openings of the three Hooters bar and grills in Bangkok, going back a good few years now, long before Covid hit. Hooters always know how to put on a good party, and since the lockdowns began I have missed my jaunts out there once or twice a month … to enjoy the cool cocktails, Hooters famous ‘wings’, and beers, you understand!
But the phoenix has arisen, and Hooters is once again party central.
They are starting things off with a bang, with the return of the wildly popular Miss Hooters Thailand Beauty Pageant, freshly revamped for 2022. The heats were (or are going to be) in Bangkok, Phuket, and Pattaya … with a spectacular Grand Finale to be held in Hooters Bangok, Nana Soi 4, on Friday 30 September.
If you want to be considered you must be born female, be between 18 to 30 years of age, minimum height 160cm, be able to communicate in English, have a nice attitude, good personality and a friendly approach. Participants should not be married, pregnant, or have a child.
All events will start with the famous ‘Hooters Dance’ performed by the staff at each venue. After the dance has put everyone in a party mood, the contestants will hit the floor … the first round is in the traditional orange and white Hooters uniform, followed by a walk on the runway in evening dress, and lastly a swimsuit round. The Grand Finale at the Hooters on Nana Soi 4 on Friday 30 September will feature nine stunning beauty queens, three each from Pattaya, Phuket, and Bangkok. And customers can join in the fun as the contestant finalists, and eventual winners are chosen.
If there are any potential beauty queens out there, you still have time to realise your dream… we are calling out to all aspiring super-models and beautiful ladies across Thailand, … Miss Hooters Thailand Beauty Pageant 2022 is back at last!
