When you meet and stay at any of their ho­tels, ex­pect no less than per­son­alised ser­vice, mod­ern busi­ness fa­cil­i­ties, a win­ning lo­ca­tion, and ex­clu­sive priv­i­leges at The Mer­i­tus Club - es­pe­cially de­signed with the MICE trav­eller in mind. A ded­i­cated Meet­ings and Events team is on hand ev­ery step of the way to en­sure the suc­cess of ev­ery event.

Iconic Man­darin Or­chard Sin­ga­pore of­fers over 30,000 square feet of ver­sa­tile meet­ing spa­ces fea­tur­ing state-of-the-art au­dio-vis­ual equip­ment, in­tel­li­gent light­ing sys­tem, and ef­fi­cient con­nec­tiv­ity. The pil­lar­less Grand Man­darin Ball­room can ac­com­mo­date up to 950 peo­ple in a ban­quet set­ting, while new meet­ing suites have just re­cently been un­veiled to cater to a wider range of ban­quet and con­fer­ence re­quire­ments for smaller groups.

At Ma­rina Man­darin Sin­ga­pore, they of­fer over 20,000 square feet of ex­ten­sive meet­ing fa­cil­i­ties that in­clude the pil­lar­less Ma­rina Man­darin Ball­room that is able to ac­com­mo­date up to 700 peo­ple, with medium-sized break­out rooms avail­able on the same floor. Smaller meet­ing rooms with nat­u­ral day­light and pri­vate bal­conies are also avail­able for up to 25 peo­ple per room.

CHAL­LENGES AND STRAT­EGY

Chal­lenges usu­ally come from last minute changes in event re­quire­ments or num­ber of at­ten­dees, with the MICE teams hav­ing to ac­com­mo­date such changes within ex­tremely tight lead times. They mar­ket their MICE of­fer­ings through var­i­ous chan­nels, pri­mar­ily cre­at­ing aware­ness by par­tic­i­pat­ing in global road shows, col­lab­o­rat­ing with the Sin­ga­pore Tourism Board on des­ti­na­tion mar­ket­ing ini­tia­tives aimed at bring­ing ma­jor events and groups from key mar­kets into Sin­ga­pore, and work­ing with strate­gic part­ners that in­clude event com­pa­nies and MICE or­gan­is­ers.

MEET­INGS WITH MER­I­TUS PACK­AGES

Their meet­ing pack­ages typ­i­cally in­clude use of meet­ing venue, cof­fee and tea breaks, sem­i­nar lun­cheon, com­pli­men­tary Wi-Fi con­nec­tiv­ity for mul­ti­ple de­vices, sta­tionery for all at­ten­dees, mints and bot­tled wa­ter, com­pli­men­tary use of an LCD pro­jec­tor and screen, and pref­er­en­tial room rates. A book­ing win­dow of least six months to a year would be ideal for the group.
