Belgium, Luxemburg and the Netherlands together form the Benelux Union, an area of extreme political and economical significance in Europe. In 1958, the three countries laid down the template for the development of the European Union. Today, the Benelux countries hold the same weight within Europe as any of the big member states.
Not surprisingly, the Benelux Union is driven by business and commerce. Every week will see numerous meeting rooms being booked for important, ground breaking decisions – many of which impinge on the European Union as a whole. These are not small internal thrash-outs over cups of coffee; they are large, international conferences addressing such issues as environmental planning, market regulations over foodstuffs, and patented medicine control.
Conferences as important as this need the right setting and Holiday Inn meetings supply exactly the right environment. Many hotels take their role as conference centres far too lightly. At Holiday Inn, we don’t.
We understand that when clients book Holiday Inn meetings, it’s because there are important decisions to be made – and some of those decisions could impinge on the EU itself. These meetings are planned months in advance, meticulously honed to the last detail; it is only right that our meeting rooms reflect this.
Many meetings in Benelux invite delegates from across Europe and beyond. Naturally, the venue has to be easily reached from all locations – not least, the HQ of the company organising the conference. With 29 hotels to choose from in the Benelux area, Holiday Inn meetings fulfil this role admirably. Yet this isn’t enough. The company has to be sure that the venue can cater for the needs of a large organisation; that it has the integrity of a major international conference suite, with the comforts and facilities of a top hotel. Holiday Inn meeting rooms supply all this – and more.
Business meetings can be stressful areas. However well planned they are, things can go wrong. So it’s important the organisers can rely on the little essentials to be in place, and in working order. An efficient, working PA system; WiFi access; a working projector; stationery essentials; bottled water on the tables; lighting and heating at the correct settings; tea, coffee and other refreshments – all these are the small, but essential things that can make or break a business meeting. Yet they are areas that many venues fall down on.
Meeting with Holiday Inn cover every little aspect, no matter how insignificant. What a conference really needs, is a dedicated PA assistant, who knows the venue like the back of their hand; who will handle every last facet of the booking to ensure it runs efficiently, and to schedule, from beginning to end. When you book Holiday Inn Meetings, this is exactly what you get – a dedicated Meetings Host who is by your side from start to finish.
Conference suites in the Benelux Union have to be just that little bit better than average. By booking Holiday Inn Meetings, you ensure you get the quality your company deserves – we take care of every little thing, so you don’t have to.
