Meeting & Event Planning Tips

Whether you’re planning a board meeting for five or a conference for 120, it’s important to make a lasting impression on your delegates. Here are some things to consider when planning your next meeting or event.

Meeting & Event Planning Tips

Location, location, location

The location of your meeting or event is critical to its success. Busy professionals appreciate not having to spend valuable time stuck in transit, so help them make the most of their time at your meeting or event. If you’re planning a Sydney conference, consider where your delegates are likely to be travelling from and whether they’ll need to pop into the office before or after your event.

Holiday Inn Potts Point has secure car parking and is close to all major public transport options, so your delegates can arrive refreshed and ready to focus. The hotel is walking distance from the Sydney CBD, with a range of restaurants and bars set right in the bustling city village of Potts Point, so delegates can kick on afterwards.

Experience is everything

When it comes to planning a business meeting or event, it’s best to leave it to the experts. A professional, experienced event manager will help you through the process and make recommendations based on what’s worked well in the past. They may come up with some creative ideas for a morning tea break, or suggest a different room configuration to better focus your delegates’ attention. Best of all, they can deal with the important details, while you stay focused on the big picture.

Our meetings and events team will work closely with you to create a memorable experience for your delegates that will run smoothly from beginning to end. We’ll oversee every aspect of your event, from audiovisual technology and catering, to accommodation and theming. Click here to get in touch with the team.

It’s all in the details

When planning your meeting or event, walk through the event in your mind and consider the small details that will make a big difference to your delegates. Is there enough space between chairs for delegates to feel comfortable? Where will they enjoy refreshment and meal breaks? Is there a quiet area where they can make calls, or a menu that caters to their dietary requirements?

Each meeting room at Holiday Inn Potts Point is fully accessible, Wi-Fi enabled and can be adapted to your needs. Simply let us know what audiovisual requirements you have, whether it’s a conference phone, whiteboard, flipchart, multimedia system, PA equipment or lectern and microphone, and we will make it happen.

Our range of conference rooms allow us to cater to meetings and events of varying sizes, from five to 120. Whether’s it’s gourmet lunch in a meeting room, a BBQ buffet on the outdoor terrace or a Mediterranean-inspired meal at Sirocco Restaurant & Bar, our onsite caterers offer a fresh alternative to traditional conference cuisine.

We’ll create a tailored proposal for your needs, with the option to incorporate accommodation, parking, meeting room hire and catering into your package.
