“With 2,000 Meetings venues, on all segments from economy to luxury, we have designed a comprehensive offer and strong expertise for meeting planners, adapted to every meeting objective and profile of participants,” said Carlo Olejniczak, Senior Vice President Global Sales.” In each of our hotels, a team of professionals (events managers, banqueting and F&B specialists, chefs, audiovisual & IT experts) is dedicated to our business clients. Their unique know-how is key to organize all types of events - from small meetings or incentives to large conventions, with a customized service approach."
