“We all want meetings that are more productive in a creative and intellectually stimulating environment. We have made a commitment to deliver successful meetings with higher productivity and greater creativity for our guests,” said Sandy Russell, Vice president, Commercial Operations, Asia Pacific, Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group. “We are leveraging technology and innovation, customer insight and research to provide all the elements that contribute to successful meetings. Radisson Blu’s Experience Meetings delivers a seamless, innovative meetings experience with a difference whilst providing sustainable options to our customers,” she added.

Experience Meetings features Brain Box, a break-out room concept which takes into account different learning styles and creates a stimulating atmosphere through the use of bright colors and flexible furniture to help boost creativity, encourage active participation and enhance interaction amongst the delegates.

Participants can also look forward to delectable Brain Food during their meetings and seminars.  This innovative culinary concept was developed in consultation with nutrition experts and chefs, and is based on core principles that emphasize the use of fresh, locally-sourced ingredients such as fish, whole grains, fruits and vegetables that have had minimal industrial processing. Fat content and added sugar are kept low and the focus is on creating menus that deliver great taste and also maintain stable blood sugar levels so that delegates experience optimal concentration and minimal fatigue.

Experience Meetings also leverages technology to ensure superior connectivity for both participants and meetings planners. Meeting delegates can enjoy free internet access, which ensures that they stay connected throughout the event.

“The most valuable resource you can give customers is your time.  We here at the Radisson Blu Plaza Xing Guo Hotel, listen to customers to uncover their individual needs by doing so, we meet their expectations. The hotel’s Experience Meeting team works with the customers to understand the personal requirements to guarantee a successful meeting. When a brand connects with their customer, that in some ways becomes the easy part, and have seen many a repeat client as a result  of this over the years,” said Howard Bennett Managing Director of Radisson Blu Plaza Xing Guo Hotel Shanghai.

Radisson Blu is also recognized by the Green Meeting Industry Council (GMIC) as a leader in sustainable meetings and Carlson Rezidor’s Club Carlson for Planners rewards program for meetings planners allows members to earn Gold Points to redeem for free night stays and airline miles.
