The General Management Meeting is a key event in the annual venuesworld.com events calendar. With 250 delegates coming from across the globe, each year this event has grown to become one of our most highly anticipated events. Kuala Lumpur was chosen as the destination for the 2017 kick-off meeting. Kuala Lumpur is one of Southeast Asia’s most prominent, modern and sophisticated cities, with visitors from around the globe.
The Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur is located in one of Kuala Lumpur’s most beautiful locations. In the shadow of the world-famous Petronas Towers, overlooking the stunning KLCC Park, the Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur was the perfect venue to host this conference. The hotel has 632 bedrooms and conference and meeting facilities that can cater for small intimate events to conferences of up to 3,000 people.
Challenges and Solutions
Logistically this was a complex event:
Transfers and logistics were a key challenge for this event. Airport transfers for all of the delegates had to be organised. With delegates attending from around the world, this was quite challenging to coordinate. Once the main conference had finished, 250 delegates had to be transferred to the off-site venue for the closing gala dinner. With prior planning and a transfer plan, all the complexity was simplified.
Immersive branding of the Mandarin Oriental
To make the kick-off meeting instantly recognisable from the moment that delegates arrived at the hotel, venuesworld.com developed a branding strategy to make sure the clients brand was at the forefront of every experience. No matter the activity, delegates were surrounded by the client’s brand. This included a branded entrance to the hotel, a branded registration area and even branded headrests on the transfer coaches.
Closing Gala Dinner at Tamarind Springs
A closing Gala Dinner is a perfect way to finish any conference. For this event, Tamarind Springs was chosen as the ideal location for this final part of the event. The restaurant provided a visual and sensory feast to reward all the delegates. The venue provided the perfect location to encourage networking and provide an experience that the delegates would never forget.
