Amari Pattaya Launches New Hybrid Meetings Package

 Capitalising on the growing trend of meetings with a technological edge boosting creativity and efficiency, Amari Pattaya has launched a Hybrid Meetings Package to meet the demands of global conference organisers in 2015. Hybrid meetings are widely believed to increase sales, improve performance and grow attendance. The benefits include giving the opportunity to reach more delegates than ever before using a virtual environment, ensuring busy executives who can't attend on the day are still a part of the discussion and boosting creativity during the sessions as all delegates can comment and contribute in real time. Additionally, multiple events occurring at different locations can also be linked, whilst for ease of reference later on, meetings can be captured and recorded for future viewing.

Amari Pattaya's new "Hybrid Meeting Package" integrates cutting edge technology with all the benefits of traditional meetings spaces, to create interesting and engaging experiences for attendees. Fully geared up for international conferences and meetings, Amari Pattaya offers a range of meeting rooms varying from small suites for intimate gatherings, to large ballrooms for conferences. The range of space on offer is complimented by an experienced team of dedicated event planners who can guide on arrangements, decorative themes and catering options to create a bespoke experience for clients.

As part of the Hybrid Meeting package, the traditional face to face meetings take place in the hotel's well-appointed Bardolino meeting room, which accommodates up to 50 participants. To reach an infinite audience through a large scale hybrid meeting the Aranda ballroom presents the ideal location, a stylishly decorated grand ballroom with high ceilings and no view-blocking pillars. Able to comfortably hold up to 300 people in real time, an unlimited number of attendees can participate in real time online using the cutting-edge equipment to hand.
