TORONTO — Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts has re-imagined its meetings and events offering with the launch of Hybrid Meetings by Four Seasons.
The new program combines creative design with the latest audio-visual technology, as well as the company’s commitment to health and safety.
“We have adapted to a world where we are connecting virtually more than ever before. Until we can gather safely again, we are creating ways to combine advanced technologies with a human approach that is distinctly Four Seasons,” says Ben Trodd, senior vice-president, Sales and Hotel Marketing, Four Seasons. “While the format of these meetings and events may look slightly different, our ability to foster deep connections and create exceptional experiences for our clients and guests remains. Each event is brought to life through industry-leading technology, a focus on health and safety through Lead With Care and by our incredible people who are dedicated to making each meeting and event spectacular.”
Four Seasons’ technology-solution partners form an integral part of the Hybrid Meetings planning process, providing personalised consultations and expert guidance, ensuring seamless meetings and events, no matter the format.
To immerse and engage attendees in the meeting or event, Four Seasons’ conference-services and catering teams can craft unique experiences for attendees, whether in-person or remote, including bespoke local activities and curated culinary surprises that are served on-cue across multiple global venues.
Planners and attendees can also take comfort that their wellbeing is the highest priority. Commonplace measures, such as screening, increased sanitation, physical distancing and mandatory use of masks or face-coverings, are in effect. Four Seasons will also manage attendee flow, room set-ups and food-and-beverage experiences, suggesting outdoor venues wherever possible, to ensure heightened health and safety at every stage of the event.
Organizations looking to deliver an important message can benefit from the multi-broadcast meeting solution, which provides a compelling and professional backdrop, stage and technology to engage audiences and bring the message to life.
For those able to meet in smaller gatherings, the innovative Hub & Spoke solution is thoughtfully designed to promote new ideas and spark global discussion, connecting several regional groups across multiple Four Seasons properties to create a single hybrid event.
Guests can turn a luxury Four Seasons room or suite into a personal office, or enjoy spacious meeting rooms with small groups, creating a quiet space for video conferencing with Wi-Fi, AV support, and room service available through the Four Seasons App and Chat.
Celebrations can also be accommodated with the Gala to Go offering, which helps bring together a small group of in-person attendees with a wider audience joining remotely.
