Just 15 years ago, the MICE travel sphere looked every different. People still relied on high-street travel agents to book flights and accommodation, flip phones were all the rage and hotels found it difficult to merge luxury and business travel.
The MICE travel sector couldn’t be more different now. Venues and hotels are seamlessly integrating business travel into their luxury ethos, curating easy booking methods and truly understanding what the client needs.
Of course, the flip phones are still a personal choice, but with the superb integrated technology available within the meeting facilities and event spaces in these progressive properties, we doubt you’ll need a phone at all.
One of the hotels leading the way in terms of outstanding MICE travel facilities is Sheraton Grand Jakarta Gandaria City Hotel in Indonesia. Recently recognized in Asia Pacific Hotel Awards as Best Convention Hotel Indonesia 2017-2018, Sheraton Grand Jakarta is renowned for making meetings simple, curating magnificent events and concentrating on every detail, so you don’t have to worry.
Located in the emerging area of South Jakarta, a grand welcome awaits every guest. The polished marble hallways, beautiful fitted restaurants, floor to ceiling windows allowing floods of natural light, coupled with plush rooms and suites with every amenity a modern traveler could desire. But the pièce de résistance are the MICE facilities. Perfectly equipped for any type of meeting or event.
From weddings to conferences and exhibitions to exclusive parties, Sheraton Grand Jakarta has venues for every occasion, allowing you to maximize the efficiency of scheduled work time in style.
While all the spaces on offer at Sheraton Grand Jakarta are impressive, the grand ballroom dazzles as soon as you step through the beautiful doors. The 24-foot-high ceilings give an air of opulence to the ballroom. The LCD projector space is at your full disposal, whether you plan on screening a short film, reveal master plans to your audience or want to live stream the event. The bohemian crystal chandeliers warm the space with their light and additional lighting can also be added to the ballroom. The grand ballroom can also be divided into three separate spaces which can again be divided thrice.
Whether you’re in need of the 7000 sq ft grand ballroom, with a full capacity of 2,500 people or looking for a the slightly smaller affair, all you need to do is liaise with the hotel’s associates and they’ll sort everything. The capacity in each of the spaces depends on the layout of the room, and this is entirely at your discretion. Explore their website to discover which of the seven ballroom event spaces is best suited to your needs.
For more intimate business meetings, the boardroom is the perfect choice. This efficient space provides a boardroom meeting table with ergonomic chairs that comfortably seats 14 attendees. With four other meeting spaces on offer, you’ll be spoilt for choice.
But what’s a meeting without a flow of refreshments and a tasty lunch to rejuvenate creativity?
Sheraton Grand Jakarta is proud to create a menu that works for your event. Whether you desire a buffet with a little bit of everything, a sit-down banquet or a convenient but still delicious set menu to keep things simple, the chefs and associates at Sheraton Grand Jakarta will create a bespoke menu for you.
Each space also comes with an additional pre-function space, ideal for breaks from the main events. Although these can’t be reserved as individual rooms, the hotel associates will cordon off areas if events are taking place simultaneously.
In addition to the outstanding and rather beautiful MICE travel facilities on offer, Sheraton Grand Jakarta also works hard on building a brand dedicated to sustainability. As part of the MICE travel facilities, Sheraton Grand Jakarta offers innovative Sustainable Meeting Services. Guests can enjoy paperless meeting planning by using the digital sales tool. From menu selection, room list creation and reservation crosscheck, not a single piece of paper needs to be used.
The sustainable meeting services also include the choice of using LED signages and white boards, access to green transportation services and guaranteed recycling in all meeting spaces. The ethos of sustainability is available in the hotel’s food and beverage services also.
