Downtown Vancouver Luxury Hotel Rewards Planners With iPad Mini

Planners Can Use New Meeting Services App at Renaissance Vancouver Harbourside Hotel

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - Dec 19, 2013) - The work of a meeting planner isn't done after signing the dotted line. From organizing transportation to making sure the coffee never runs out, a planner's job is never done. The Renaissance Vancouver Harbourside Hotel is making it easier -- and more rewarding -- for those hosting a meeting or event in its Vancouver event space with a very special iPad Mini promotion.

Organizers who book a meeting with at least 75 cumulative rooms during select dates at this downtown Vancouver boutique hotel will receive a brand-new iPad Mini. With their new device, planners can be amongst the first to try Marriott's new innovative meeting services app. The app, free and accessible from any web-enabled device, allows planners to make requests before and during a meeting without leaving the room or disrupting the meeting. With the app, planners can make requests, from more coffee and chairs to adjusting the room temperature, with the touch of a button. Requests are sent directly to the appropriate department, creating a seamless experience. Planners can also use their new iPad Mini to download MeetingMatrix® certified diagrams with room layouts to help plan future meetings.

This hotel offers a location near the Vancouver Convention Centre, making it a smart choice for business travel and events. Its 29,000 square feet of function space include 20 meeting rooms and an exhibition space. The Harbourside Ballroom can host up to 720 guests and be broken down into 12 different spaces, offering the perfect venue for all-day conferences and conventions.

The hotel's experts can also assist with Vancouver event planning, from setting up audiovisual features for presentations to helping select a custom menu that will both inspire and energize meeting attendees. Attention to detail is found throughout the hotel with business-friendly in-room amenities including Wi-Fi, a desk, room service and coffee/tea maker. A state-of-the-art fitness centre, indoor pool and all-day dining venue allow guests to stick to their at-home routine even while they're on the road.
