As an event planner, how many times a day are you being asked about new trends, innovative event concepts, and crazy new venues? Recent research indicates, that when it comes to meetings and events, all clients seem to want are unusual venues, gatherings in extraordinary places, and menus prepared by the world’s most famous chefs. Whilst new ideas and innovative concepts may be inspiring for some, the reality of the average events and conference requirements is slightly different.
As a fairly large conference hotel with 45 function spaces in the heart of Berlin, the InterContinental Berlin receives hundreds of inquiries from meeting planners all over the world every day of the week. Despite the current trends and industry innovation, meeting planners seem to base their decision to contact the InterContinental Berlin on rather traditional values such as having an event planner with longstanding professional experience, an eye for detail, and a true understanding of the guests’ needs and budgets.
While many hotel chains come up with new meeting packages on a daily basis to satisfy an apparent need for constant reinvention, the InterContinental Hotels & Resorts have decided to focus on the core values that meeting planners are looking for by launching the Meetings & Events Collection, which was developed by identifying the most important factors for successful conferences and functions according to the most influential event organizers.
The Meetings & Events Collection is based on the standard and most popular DDR package with extra value adds such as free WIFI, favorable complimentary guest room policy, and a 24-hour dedicated and personalized meeting support. Clients have the option to customize their events package by picking enhanced services such as a special attrition allowance that supports customer-friendly short-term modifications or complimentary airport transfer to ensure your top VIPs are being looked after.
For the team at the InterContinental Berlin the devil is definitely in the details: personalized service, dedicated events manager, versatile event spaces, and decades of experiences are the foundation for long-lasting relationships with a broad portfolio of international clients from all industries.
Innovative ideas and concepts are tailor-made to the clients’ specific needs and budgets, considering their input all along while ensuring that even the most demanding forward thinking industry leaders are well taken care of.
