RICHMOND, BC -- (Marketwired) -- 01/10/14 -- As with anything work-related, incentives go a long way toward improving productivity. Whether it's a vacation for top performers, or a salary bonus for a job well done, there are many ways to reward the select few. Rewarding everyone, however, is not just egalitarian, it's also good business. At least that's the thinking behind the new meetings promotion at the Vancouver Airport Marriott Hotel. With this deal, not only do meeting planners receive a complimentary iPad Mini, they also enjoy access to the groundbreaking new Marriott Meeting Services App, which ensures a superior meeting experience for every last delegate involved.
As one of the most sophisticated luxury airport hotels in Vancouver, this property is accustomed to welcoming conferences to its seven spacious meeting rooms, including its 4,500-sq.-ft., barrier-free ballroom. Intimate board meetings and expansive conferences alike encounter practical amenities and experienced staff. But the property's latest meetings promotion is the most tempting among available hotel deals in Richmond, British Columbia, because it revolutionizes the way business is done.
Marriott's brand-new Meeting Services App is a direct response to the changing face of business today. Available via any web-enabled device, it allows meeting planners to make requests -- for more coffee, a thermostat change, A/V assistance and more -- in real time with a dedicated meeting-services professional. The requests can then be handled immediately and without the planner ever having to leave her chair, much less the room.
For planners who are eager to try out this new app and experience some of the most elegant meeting rooms near the Vancouver airport, this latest promotion just makes good business sense. Meeting planners who book 75 cumulative rooms (or more) during select dates until April 30, 2014, are eligible to receive a complimentary iPad Mini. For more information on this promotion, visit: www.iPadPromotion.Marriott.com.
In addition to the iPad Mini and new app, groups will appreciate staying at a property that stands out among other YVR airport hotels for its plush accommodations, American Grille restaurant, heated outdoor pool and fitness centre. After all, when everyone wins, business can only benefit.
