Katleen Verbeeck, Director of Global Field Marketing for Kodak, explains: “We held our annual Sales Kick Off Meeting for North Europe at the top class Maritim Hotel Köngswinter in early February. The three-day event is key for our 75-delegate sales team as it is the first opportunity to briefed on the company’s business objectives, as well as the latest products and services being introduced for the year.
“The event itself was a bespoke multi day conference programme, with plenary sessions and breakout discussions on the latest product unveilings, along with workshops and strategy planning. Dinner was held both at the hotel and off-site, with a winter BBQ and wine tasting arranged by Maritim at a local vineyard.
“We chose Maritim for one simple reason; there is no need to ask for anything, it already there. Everything is selected and sourced specific to our requirements. Any additional considerations have already been anticipated and made available before we even need to ask.
“The newly refurbished Maritim Hotel Köngswinter provided an excellent European venue for the event. Situated on the Rhine promenade, its location is ideal for our many logistical requirements with additional suppliers. The hotel’s 248 rooms and suites and comprehensive event facilities ensured that every technical aspect of the event was expertly accommodated for.
“Based on another positive experience and delegate feedback, we have already booked another event with Maritim, which we are looking forward to announcing soon.”
LeRoy Sheppard, Director of Sales for UK & Ireland for Maritim Hotels, says: “Our ethos to combining meetings and accommodation, along with a commitment to the highest quality of standard and service under one roof, ensures we remain the international hotel brand of choice for the many blue-chip companies we work with. We look forward to continue hosting Kodak across our international portfolio for many years to come.”
