The Munich Marriott Hotel and Amsterdam Marriott Hotel will be the first hotels in Europe to offer “people-inspired” meeting spaces, a new concept, available late September.
Marriott Hotels, the signature brand of Marriott International, is “re-imagining” traditional meeting spaces to meet a growing demand for more inspiring and creative work environments. The multi-national group is re-thinking everything from boardrooms, breakouts and pre-function spaces, and taking a holistic approach to meetings and seamlessly integrating service, technology and contemporary design.
Research conducted by Marriott and the publishers of Wired, the Condé Nast technology magazine, shows that people are working differently than in previous generations. The trend has shifted from individual workspaces to an ecosystem of places that gives workers choice and control over where and how to work, in and out of the office.
Marriott says that the new meeting suites will be flexible work spaces that meet the objectives of the meeting and its participants rather than dictate by room lay-out or furniture. All technology will be app or web enabled, providing a platform for future technological innovation. www.marriott.co.uk
