Imagine your group having an entire luxury hotel or resort to themselves, with every door open, every staff member at your service, and fully customised to your specifications. With the new Exclusives and Buyouts program, Four Seasons hotels and resorts are offering just that.
“At Four Seasons we’re in the business of making memorable experiences happen for our guests, and that includes our group clients,” says Four Seasons Senior Vice President Global Sales Jonathan Sicroff. “On many occasions, the needs and ambitions of our clients are so big that we open up entire properties exclusively for their use, resulting in a world of benefits for both hosts and participants. The extraordinary opportunity to have a Four Seasons all to yourself may have been the MICE industry’s best kept secret – until now.”
With 60 percent of meeting professionals planning to increase incentive eligibility in the next year, and 49 percent planning to increase their incentive travel budgets,* industry executives are looking for ways to take group events to the next level.
“There is nothing more appealing than a hotel buyout. Meeting planners are judged by our clients on creativity, flexibility and our ability to maximise marketing opportunities, and when you have a property on an exclusive basis, it opens so many possibilities to execute top tier events,” Richard A. Calcaterra, Co-founder and Officer, Enterprise Events Group.
Debbie Parsons, President of The Performance Group, believes there are additional benefits once the event is in progress: “To know that every guest in the hotel is part of the same group creates a very powerful cultural experience than transcends the agenda. When the entire hotel staff is focused solely on one client, it’s like a dance or orchestra performing at the highest level, something truly special that will be remembered by participants long after it’s over.”
