My Best Meeting Moment, by Johann Lenhart, Director of Event Management, Budapest Marriott Hotel

기업체 행사에 현대적인 지역색 가미

Our hotel recently hosted a meeting for corporate human resource professionals. The meeting, with workshops and keynote speakers, celebrated award honorees from the previous year and outlined a vision for the upcoming five years.

The guests included 125 human resource professionals, and other corporate executives, from many large European countries. The meeting took place in the Budapest ballroom and featured breakout sessions in the adjacent meeting rooms and breaks on the terrace and in foyer areas.

Many elements made this event unique, including the local food options featured during lunches and in the coffee break area.

Adding Local Flair

Many elements made this event unique, including the local food options featured during lunches and in the coffee break area. During breaks, attendees could head to the coffee area, set up in different areas, include the kitchen, which also featured local cheese, dips and artisanal chocolates.

As an added bonus, we brought in food experts who educated participants on the local culinary offerings, in addition to displaying QR codes for all special items.

 

Overcoming Obstacles + Planning on Our Feet

One of the biggest challenges during this event was the weather. On the second day, we had to cancel a fundraising run, jog and walk due to heavy rain. As a replacement, we arranged for a local Zumba instructor to set up a sound system and teach a class in the second largest space available on the property, which ended up being a great team building event.

Favorite Moments to Remember

Some of my favorite details included the modern seating arrangements; the award ceremony, which featured a cocktail bar, food served family style to increase networking, and live DJ on the terrace; and the coffee break station in the kitchen with local food offerings.

Guests also enjoyed being able to use the relaxation areas set up on ballroom terrace during meeting breaks to rejuvenate with some fresh air in comfortable beach chairs.
