Four Seasons launch hybrid meetings

Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts is making it easier to bring people together by combining in-person and virtual settings in a reimagined meetings and events offering. Hybrid Meetings by Four Seasons combines creative design with the latest audio-visual technology, and an unwavering commitment to health and safety, to enrich every meeting with human connections wherever in the world attendees may be. Four Seasons has long been a leader in creating unforgettable meetings and events, helping planners create customised, one-of-a-kind experiences that make lasting impressions on attendees. While the meetings and events landscape has changed as a result of the global COVID-19 pandemic, Four Seasons remains more committed than ever to creating innovative and engaging meetings and events.

“We have adapted to a world where we are connecting virtually more than ever before. Until we can gather safely again, we are creating ways to combine advanced technologies with a human approach that is distinctly Four Seasons,” says Ben Trodd, Senior Vice President, Sales and Hotel Marketing. “Time apart from colleagues, clients, friends and family has only reinforced the importance of meetings and events and the need to connect in meaningful ways. Hybrid Meetings offer the service excellence, innovation and creativity that Four Seasons is known for, while elevating the safety and care required to bring people together in the current environment.”

Trodd continues, “While the format of these meetings and events may look slightly different, our ability to foster deep connections and create exceptional experiences for our clients and guests remains. Each event is brought to life through industry-leading technology, a focus on health and safety through Lead With Care, and by our incredible people who are dedicated to making each meeting and event spectacular.”

Whether as a departure requirement, for added safety at in-person gatherings, or simply for peace of mind, all Four Seasons properties globally can facilitate access to COVID-19 testing for guests through a third-party provider. Property teams will work with planners to understand their specific needs and provide guidance and recommendations on end-to-end testing options and costs. Trodd continues, “Guided by leading healthcare experts, we ground all planning and decision-making in expertise and the latest knowledge and best-practices, while training our on-property teams not only about how to adhere to the strictest of protocols, but also why they matter.”
