Four Seasons Offers New Meetings Package

 Since the beginning of 2010, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts has seen an increase in group room nights worldwide of over 26% compared to 2009. With the new customisable "Meetings Made Yours" package offered globally, Four Seasons believes it's a good time to book a meeting.

"Companies are investing in face-to-face meetings again because of the tangible and significant return on investment they have been proven to provide," says Susan Helstab, executive vice president, marketing. "Many seek what Four Seasons has always offered its guests: exceptional value, customised experiences, and flawless service that allows the focus to be on the business at hand."

Combining unprecedented flexibility with competitive room rates, Meetings Made Yours puts planners in charge, allowing them to design individual programs that define value in their terms. Each client is presented with a menu of options that includes added-value offers such as complimentary breakfasts, breaks, and even reduced attrition to complement their competitive room rates. The result is a customised booking that aligns with business goals.

"We recognise that there is no 'standard' conference and that each has its own unique set of needs," says Helstab. "Meetings Made Yours aims to enhance the success of each event by allowing meetings planners to customise it from the start."

Augmenting the value offered through the Meetings Made Yours package is the robust, guest-focused support that Four Seasons has always provided at each of its hotels and resorts. By booking with Four Seasons, guests invest in knowing that experienced and creative meetings experts will execute event themes down to the last detail. A collection of thoughtful amenities such as one-hour pressing, 24-hour room service and easy-to-use in-room technology; complimentary administrative support and complimentary access to fitness centres; and coffee, pastry and newspapers in the mornings, create a worry-free stay for event attendees, making the meeting the focus of the trip.
