Legendary Julio Iglesias to perform in RWG

leave a comment »

-The Latin icon will weave his magic on 11 December 2016
GENTING HIGHLANDS, Malaysia /PRNewswire/ — Julio Iglesias is a legend, having sold more than 300 million albums in 14 languages, and having ruled the 70s and 80s with such iconic songs as To All the Girls I’ve Loved Before and All of You.

Julio Inglesias World Tour Live in Genting
Julio Inglesias World Tour Live in Genting
There is no mistaking the distinctive voice of Iglesias who has more than 400 gold and platinum records certified, making him one of the best-selling artistes of all time and the best-selling Latin artist in history. And this December that voice will light up the stage at Resorts World Genting when the Latin icon weaves his magic during his concert.

Julio Iglesias World Tour Live in Genting will be held at the Arena of Stars on 11 December 2016 at 8.30pm, and fans of his love ballads in particular will not want to miss the chance to catch the singing legend in the flesh.

The timeless appeal of Iglesias is especially evident in the duets he performed with other iconic singers. Who can forget To All the Girls I’ve Love Before with Willie Nelson, My Love with Stevie Wonder, and All of You, with Diana Ross? All of these were chart-toppers just like his other best-known hits, Hey, 1110 Bel Air Place, Non Stop, Starry Night, and Crazy.

And advancing age has not stopped the most successful Latin singer of all time from continuing to entertain — his album, Mexico, released late last year, was his first Spanish-language recording in 12 years. For his fans it marked yet another great milestone for the singer who was born in Madrid, Spain in 1943. The force of nature that is Julio Iglesias began his ascent when he won the 1968 Benidorm Festival with a song he composed himself entitled La Vida Sigue Igual. Following that, he signed with Discos Columbia Records — and he has never looked back since.

Tickets for Julio Iglesias World Tour Live in Genting are priced at RM890 (VVIP), RM710 (VIP), RM530 (PS1), RM380 (PS2), RM240 (PS3) and RM120 (PS4). Genting Rewards Card (GRC) members are entitled to a 10% discount via Genting Point Redemption, and cash or credit card and Rewards Point (applicable to all price scales).

Admission is one ticket per person applicable to adults, children of all ages and infants.

We are disrupting the landscape, and enabling users to be rewarded for merely paying their expenses,” said Chrystie Dao-Szabo, Chief Operating Officer of iPaymy Technologies.

“iPaymy bring benefits to the financial ecosystem for individual users, banks, corporates and the payment schemes including but not limited to Visa, Mastercard and American Express. Fintechs are generally viewed as a threat to banks but iPaymy complements banks’ service offerings, as there is synergy and growth potential for all parties. Corporates also love using iPaymy as it allows the Suppliers to be paid much earlier whilst giving the buyer extended credit terms (up to 55 days interest free). This way, the buyer is able to ask for early payment discounts from their suppliers,” said Ms Dao-Szabo.

Ms Dao-Szabo, a co-founder and COO of iPaymy is employee number 1. Prior to her role at iPaymy, she was an international banker whose career has spanned more than 2 decades across Europe, Australia and Asia.

The outlook for iPaymy is bright in the Singapore market – with over 1.58 million card users, who on average have 6 credit cards each, not to mention the corporate credit cards in circulation today.

Expanding List of Items Payable through iPaymy

Until recently, tenants could only pay rent through bank transfers in Singapore. iPaymy has made it possible for tenants to pay rental deposits and monthly rents on credit cards and earn rewards.

For example, a tenant that pays S$3,500 monthly rent, could earn a free return Business Class trip from Singapore to Japan just through using the iPaymy platform for less than a year (assuming they earn 1.6 air miles per dollar spent). iPaymy charges a service fee of 2.6% for all transactions on consumer credit cards. For Corporate cards, iPaymy is in talks with all the major Banks in Singapore to customise a proposition for the corporate market.

iPaymy’s services have recently expanded too, now including school fees, car park charges, condo management services, trade services and more. This allows users to be rewarded for more of their monthly spending.

Catering to Singapore’s S$22 billion Property Management Industry

iPaymy’s property management features facilitates a one-stop service for tenants, agents, and landlords to manage rental properties & payments in a more easier, transparent and efficient manner.

This is proving to be popular in Singapore, where the property management industry is worth over S$22 billion.

iPaymy provides a secure way to make and receive rent payments, keep track of lease obligations and coordinate maintenance. iPaymy has also made it easier for foreign tenants to pay rents without local bank accounts (overcoming inconvenience and cost of international money transfers for new arrivals), whilst earn rewards from their credit cards.

With automatic alerts landlords and agents can receive real-time notifications when rent is paid, and can plan lease renewals, while tenants can track air-con servicing and more.

iPaymy will be exhibiting at Booth #329 at the Singapore FinTech festival on November 16 & 17.
