IBEROSTAR launches new catalogue dedicated to MICE
IBEROSTAR Hotels & Resorts has issued a new catalogue dedicated to meetings, incentives, conferences and events (MICE).
The new IBEROMEETINGS 2009 catalogue of the award-winning hotel chain features more than 50 IBEROSTAR properties that currently offer MICE facilities – ranging from small seminar rooms to large meeting halls, fitted with brand new audiovisual equipment. Furthermore, the hotel chain also counts with several, property owned or associated Convention Centres with capacities for over 1000 people - a great offer to meet on the best beaches worldwide.
This new MICE directory provides detailed information about meeting capacities as well as very practical information about location, number and type of accommodation units, Food and Beverage services and leisure facilities for groups.
According to Andres Merino, Meetings & Incentives Director of IBEROSTAR Hotels & Resorts: "The MICE market is an increasingly important area for our hotel group. The new IBEROMEETINGS catalogue reflects the growing demand for MICE facilities, and turns into a useful tool for meeting planners while organising their conference or incentive groups."
