Marriott hotels debut innovative meeting places
THE Munich Marriott and the Amsterdam Marriott are now being touted as the first hotels in Europe to offer "people-inspired" meeting places.
The new concept, which will be available from the end of September, will see the "reimagining" of traditional meeting places to meet a growing demand for inspiring work environments.
The spaces will feature wireless technology and items such as video conferencing, smart whiteboards, projection walls, docking stations and touch-screen controls.
"The way people work is changing but the way meetings are hosted at hotels has not kept pace," said Paul Cahill of Marriott Hotels.
"The new innovative meeting spaces will revolutionise the way meetings are conducted in hotels."
