This accolade now places InterContinental Wellington in the running for the title of World’s Leading Conference Hotel, to be announced early December following the next round of voting. Voting will take place by former guests and travel agents worldwide.
Offering the most technologically-advanced conference spaces in Wellington, features include interactive whiteboards whereby presenters can wirelessly connect via iOS and Android devices, retractable projector screens and data projectors, wall mounted touch-screen control panels for lighting, sound and visuals, and conference menus that allow for tailored individuality.
Drawing on the experience of the global brand, the InterContinental Meetings product is designed to inspire delegates and drive results, with the dedicated team understanding what it takes to create truly memorable meetings and events. When paired with a variety of accommodation options including 236 guest rooms and suites, guests will have the option to mix business and pleasure with Wellington’s largest collection of hotel facilities.
InterContinental Wellington provides meeting organisers and delegates alike the most centrally-located and experienced global five-star hotel in New Zealand’s capital city.
'Our team take great pride in ensuring a memorable experience is had at all touch points from the planning phase through to the event dates,' says InterContinental Wellington director of sales and marketing, Marna van Blerk.
'Our spaces and technology when combined with the experience and expertise of our team has long established InterContinental Wellington as the leading conferencing hotel in Wellington, and to receive Australasian-wide recognition is an honour.'
InterContinental Wellington’s Presidential Suite was also recognised last night, named as New Zealand’s Leading Hotel Suite.
'A sanctuary for heads of state and high-profile entertainers, the stunning suite is the largest in our capital city with areas for hosting that provide panoramic views of Wellington’s harbour. It is also accessible to a broader market, and is often utilised by conference organisers for keynote speakers,' says InterContinental Wellington general manager Scott Hamilton.
