Leicester’s Marriott Hotel unveils new conference facilities
Leicester’s Marriott Hotel has revealed a new refurbishment, showcasing new conferencing facilities and technology.
The hotel aims to enhance the flexibility of the facilities as well as the experience of delegates and conference bookers. Its new approach to booking and managing events is summed-up by the concept: Meetings Made at Marriott - Meetings Made Simple. Made Rewarding. Made Effortless.
The 227-bedroom hotel has integrated the Marriott Meetings App, whch gives organisers the ability to easily manage their event , and to communicate with the Marriot events team instantly.
Other areas of technology include ClickShare, a wireless, plug and play presentation system that allows multiple users to stream to the same TV. Electronic Room Signage and Write on Wall technology features in some meeting rooms for confidentiality, as well as collaborative breakout areas to inspire social interaction and conference engagement.
Commenting on the new offerings, hotel manager Rajesh Chahar said: “When we opened 12 years ago we knew it would be a popular hotel for conferences due to our size and flexibility of conferencing and meeting spaces. But the number of new enquiries and bookings since the renovation has really exceeded our expectations.
“The major investment, particularly in the redesign of the Grove Suite, our largest conference and banqueting space which can seat up to 400 attendees with ease and intuitive technology, enables us to position ourselves as markets leaders.”
