Innovative meeting room philosophyFocusing on simplicity, modernity and well-being, ibis Hotels is setting new trends in the meetings market with the launch of _SPACE by ibis. Continuing the ibis megabrand revolution, the new meeting room and office concept is available at 20 of its UK hotels.
Offering creative spaces for a few hours or a whole day, ibis has removed the hassle and clutter from its event areas, meaning its new offering focuses on the important things people really need. The concept also addresses the growing requirement for flexible working spaces, as many in the UK workforce receive greater freedom to work where they want.
James Wheatcroft, Marketing Director, Budget & Economy Brands UK & IRE comments: “Where simple meets savvy, this is our vision for _SPACE by ibis. The UK workspace is changing and our flexible office and meeting room spaces offer an ideal place to conduct business. We ensure the basics are done well, but also go that extra mile by offering the very best service.”
Booking a room is straightforward, easy and can be done directly over the phone or online. As standard all spaces include unlimited tea and Nespresso, unlimited WIFI, thorough setup, no hidden charges and no kick out time. AV support is also provided for meetings, from setting up Skype calls to the in-built projector screens to ease connectivity. After all, why shouldn’t all these be included in the rate you pay?
ibis has introduced a new culinary offering with a simple, fresh and tasty menu. The day delegate package includes a selection of beautiful filled artisan breads or salad lunch, and can be upgraded to a hot-lunch on request. Those planning a working lunch can choose to have it delivered to their meeting room on an airline trolley, or head down to the restaurant for a change of scenery. Morning and afternoon snacks are also available including smoothies by ProJuice, and muffins and cookies by Spunkmeyer.
To allow people to relax whilst working or even take a quick break between calls, the rooms have been creatively designed with a number of meeting rooms including pool tables and table footballs - ideal for breakout sessions or a little downtime.
_SPACE by ibis incorporates a new simplified pricing and RFP process with improved response times, two page contacts and reduced T&C’s. Daily delegate rates start from £25 per person and £30 per person including hot buffet. Day office rates start from £50, with daily room hire starting from £150 and all with beanbags!
