InterContinental Hotels Group has announced the launch of Unique Meetings, a portfolio of one-of-a-kind event spaces and experiences for those looking for non-traditional meetings.
The initiative is being rolled out across 43 InterContinental Hotels & Resorts, Crowne Plaza Hotels & Resorts and Holiday Inn hotels across India, Middle East and Africa.
Unique Meetings has been introduced to cater to the changing expectations of event attendees, who are looking for memorable experiences and stand-out venues. Whether it’s a tropical beach or a Bedouin tent, IHG provides alternative settings for business gatherings and has a team of event planners to assist with organising meetings and conferences that take advantage of the surroundings and leave guests with a long-lasting impression.
Relax and reconnect with colleagues while you enjoy a garden picnic, which boasts an assortment of culinary delicacies from live cooking stations to a walk-in pantry. Whether it be on white picnic benches, cushions or mats, colleagues can enjoy the fresh air while taking in the views over the creek to bustling downtown Dubai. This is just one of the many distinctive meeting offerings that IHG has across its hotels.
Pascal Gauvin, managing director, India, Middle East & Africa, IHG said: “We are continually looking to innovate and improve the services that we offer and, having listened to the specific needs of our customers, we have introduced Unique Meetings. Meeting planners are increasingly looking to engage their attendees on multiple levels, and that extends to the venue. A non-traditional venue has many benefits including driving interest, improving creativity, and boosting attendee engagement. Through our experientially-oriented approach, we aim to create differentiation and offer unconventional event spaces that create memorable experiences. We have reimagined the conference room and provide choice and diversity to ensure that your next venue exceeds guests’ expectations.”
