Kim Jong Un just visited a swanky Singapore hotel where the CEOs of retail companies like Coca-Cola and Alibaba will flock this week

Several worlds will collide in Singapore this week.

Not only is the Asian city-state set to play host to the first meeting of President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, but several key retail executives are also scheduled to meet nearby for the Consumer Goods Forum, which kicks off on Tuesday.

The four-day event is being held at one of Singapore’s most luxurious, best-known resorts, the Marina Bay Sands, which includes a hotel, a mall, a casino, and several bars and restaurants.

It’s the same place where Kim was spotted arriving on Monday evening. The North Korean leader was greeted with loud cheering as he entered the hotel’s lobby downstairs – perhaps headed for the rooftop bar on the hotel’s 57th floor.

While Kim isn’t staying at the hotel, he’s only 15 minutes away at the St. Regis.

On Wednesday, Marina Bay Sands is expected to be full of retail executives from companies including Coca-Cola, Colgate, L’Oréal, and Alibaba. Each evening, attendees from the conference will be meeting to socialise.

Coca-Cola will be hosting a cocktail party on Wednesday. The CEO and president of the company, James Quincey, will be speaking at the conference.
