As we adapt to working in fast paced, demanding and ever changing environments we begin to understand more clearly the value of time.
Consequently, conference organisers need to be strategic in their choice of conference venue and methods of delivery to ensure goals are achieved, budgets do not go over and more importantly – delegates feel as though they have made the most of their time, learnt something of value and were actively involved in the process.
However, attention is something conference organisers can struggle to maintain from their attendees. Today, the average attention span of an adult is roughly 8 seconds!! Distractions are plentiful so how does one chose the right conference venue, remove distractions and maintain the attention and interest of their delegates? Enter the Airport Hotel.
With accommodation, food & beverage and Wi-Fi options onsite, the Airport hotel is increasingly becoming a corporate favourite for convenience and peace of mind. Our Mercure Hotel at Sydney Airport offers the perfect venues for your Sydney conferences and meetings: travel and entertainment costs are reduced due to on site Audio Visual equipment and airport transfer options delivering attendees directly to the Hotel. Full catering, continuous Tea & Coffee and Bar & Restaurant options also removes the need for delegates to go off site and potentially not return. Organisers stay rest assured their attendees are stress free and have all the necessary requirements to keep their attention focused on the agenda of the day.
Mercure Hotels recognise that traditionally, conferences have been focused more on content rather than connection. Death by PowerPoint, lack of natural light and unhealthy catering menu options leave delegates feeling sluggish and disinterested. In an innovative response, Mercure hotels developed the Mindful Meetings concept offering catering menus developed by qualified nutritionists to boost energy levels and maintain concentration. Meditation, self-massage and yoga options to reduce time spent sitting down, rooms with access to natural lighting and indoor plants to improve air quality, all together creating a new and engaging conference experience.
So, to achieve your business goals, keep your audience engaged and enjoy the peace of mind knowing that everything has been organised before you arrive, book your next conference or event at the Mercure Sydney International Airport.
