Holiday Inn Edinburgh

Holiday Inn Edinburgh
Next to London, Edinburgh has more FTSE companies than anywhere else in Britain. It is also the second most popular city for leisure and business tourism both areas in which we at Holiday Inn Edinburgh excel.

Edinburgh is one of the top tourist destinations in Europe, its landmarks, cultural events and yearly arts festival needing no introduction. The Edinburgh Festival, Tattoo and Hogmanay festivities see our Holiday Inn Edinburgh hotels swell to capacity, but the city has something to offer at any time of year. Edinburgh Castle, Jacobs Ladder, Holyrood House, Arthurs Seat and the shops and restaurants of the Royal Mile are eternally popular. The city has an eclectic mix of museums, galleries and arts venues, with a constantly changing events calendar.

Edinburgh is one of the worlds top tourist destinations, but its also a hub of industry, commerce and education. Ahead of London, it has been named the most desirable place to live in the UK, and the Best Small City of the Future for 2010 2011. The economy is reliant on service sector industries, such as health, education, finance, retail, leisure, hospitality and the arts. However, the famous university dispenses a constant stream of graduate entrepreneurs, and science, technology, engineering and IT are also important. The air and sea ports bring further prosperity.

From all this, another important industry has evolved that of business tourism. Edinburgh is the second most popular city for international conferences, and 36th in the world, according to the International Congress and Convention Association. Visit Britain named Edinburgh top value-for-money in a poll of international conference cities. The Edinburgh Conference Bureau, established to promote Edinburgh to companies outside the area, has named us at Holiday Inn as one of the top hotel chains for arranging meetings in Edinburgh something our clients are happy to endorse.

Holiday Inn Riyadh

Holiday Inn Riyadh
The capital of Saudi Arabia and one of the Middle Easts largest cities, Riyadh is a centre of business, administration and finance and a conference hub for the MEA, with more meetings facilities than any other city in Saudi Arabia.

We at Holiday Inn Riyadh have superbly equipped conference facilities in three fully serviced hotels, located in Riyadhs central business, finance and administration districts. Conveniently located for the International Exhibition Centre and King Khaled International airport, our venues seat up to 1300 delegates in air-conditioned comfort.

The benefits of Holiday Inn Riyadh

All three of our Holiday Inn venues – Holiday Inn Riyadh-Al Qasr, Holiday Inn Riyadh-Olaya and Holiday Inn Riyadh Minhal are located in or near Riyadhs Central Business District of Riyadh-Olaya. Dominated by the glittering towers of King Fahd road, this is Saudi Arabias most prosperous thoroughfare, lined with designer shopping malls and multinational companies. King Khaled International Airport is just 30 minute to the north.

Our Holiday Inn Riyadh Minhal hotel is particularly well sited for Riyadhs hospitals and government buildings. Able to hold up to 350 delegates, our largest room can sub-divide for smaller meetings. We at Holiday Inn Riyadh pride ourselves on our flexibility and range of meeting rooms, which can accommodate groups of all sizes in a variety of formal and informal layouts.

Riyadh a sparkling green oasis of opportunity

Despite its modern skyline, Riyadh dates back 1500 years. A prized desert oasis, until the arrival of the oil fields it was mainly a centre for agriculture. Today, green fields are dominant once more, with the Saudi government ploughing resources into farming and sustainable energy. A number of agricultural and environmental events are held in Riyadh each year.

The Saudi government prizes private enterprise highly. Privatisation and investment have created a city where small businesses, as well as large conglomerates, are able to thrive. We at Holiday Inn are able to answer the needs of both groups. Our newly-refurbished Holiday Inn Riyadh-Al Qasr can accommodate up to 1300 delegates, and up to 450 at the luxurious Holiday Inn Riyadh-Olaya nearby. Both offer superb accommodation for both business and leisure guests, being central to the malls and other attractions of King Fahd Road.

Holiday Inn Riyadh for business, for pleasure, for both

King Fahd Road is an excellent base for exploration. Dominated by the Kingdom Centre, other stunning examples of Saudi architecture include the artistically-styled Al Faisaliyah Centre, Saudis first skyscraper, and the Riyadh TV Tower. King Fahd is considered one of the most beautiful modern thoroughfares in the world.

However, theres a cultural side to Riyadh as well. We at Holiday Inn Riyadh are equally well placed for exploration of the mediaeval city ruins of Diriyah, just a few kilometres from the city centre and one of the most important archaeological sites in the Middle East. The Al-Dira Old Town district has been built on the site of the original Riyadh, in a style sympathetic to traditional Nejd architecture. The al-Masmak Fort and King Abdulaziz Historical Centre are equally worthy of a visit, and there are a number of traditional Nejd villages in the region which make a pleasant afternoons drive.

Whether you are here for business or pleasure, we at Holiday Inn Riyadh will ensure your stay is perfect.

Holiday Inn London

Holiday Inn London
The capital of the UK does not need much introduction, as one of the major business cities in the world, most major institutions will at some point use London for their conference, meeting or other business purposes. Despite London being one of the largest cities in terms of business locations, there are still a lot of companies based outside the city in other parts of the UK, however even those companies who are based outside the city will still operate elements of their business operation within the City of London.

There are misconceptions that to conduct business in London is expensive which is what puts a lot of people off. Whilst there are increased rental prices for some business properties, holding business meetings, conferences or gatherings is easily achievable and there are price options available to suit different needs. At Holiday Inn London we offer 18 venues within the city of London and surrounding areas to provide our customers with a vast choice of locations to fit in with different requirements. With meeting and conference facilities available for up to 700 guests in some locations, there is scope for catering for most business events.

When it comes to international business, London is arguably the most popular city to choose to invite business associates from overseas. The three major airports fly to and from most countries and with such short flight times from many European countries, it is an obvious location for holding business conferences. Even those visitors who are on an express trip can be catered for, as with locations close to both Heathrow and Gatwick airport, Holiday Inn London can create a convenient meeting venue for those who need to arrive and depart quickly.

There is of course a lot more to London than just business and convenience and it is a great city to entertain guests or reward employees. Many overseas visitors are fascinated by the history of Britain and its capital city, giving the perfect opportunity to combine business with a bit of culture and pleasure. Even guests from other parts of the UK or London itself can benefit from a little London history and with Holiday Inn London locations in the likes of Mayfair and Kensington there are a lot of choices for creating a cultured visit for guests.

Of course another favourite activity in London is shopping and nobody can deny that London has some of the best shops in the world. As a city it can easily match the likes of Paris and New York in terms of retail status and quality. Turning a shopping trip into a group weekend is a great way of getting colleagues or friends together and offers something a little more relaxed. By choosing a location in the heart of Oxford Street you can easily enjoy the shops, bars and hustle and bustle of urban London without having far to walk back.

The options for London are endless which makes it such a versatile and accommodating city to host a business or personal event in.

The glass façade and palm-fringed driveway of our 11-storey hotel is in perfect keeping with its surroundings. Abu Dhabi is thought of as a glittering modern conglomerate of tower blocks. However, the city has a history stretching back 3000 years, and beyond the high-rise architecture of man-made islands like Al Sowwah and Al Reem, there is a wealth of attractions to entice both the leisure guest and the business visitor.

Our rooftop pool gives superb views of the magnificent Grand Mosque, while the SKMC complex, adjacent to us at Holiday Inn Abu Dhabi, is a triumph of modern architecture. Its white crenulated walls emulate traditional styles seen elsewhere in the city, such as the fortresses of Al Maqtaa and Qasr al-Hosn. Other cultural attractions include Khalifa Park, the Heritage Village, and Al Ain where you’ll find parks, museums and a zoo. Or visit the Camel Market for a unique view of traditional Arabian life.

Coastal attractions

Abu Dhabi is an island city, connected to the mainland via three bridges. We at Holiday Inn Abu Dhabi are just minutes from the fabulous Corniche, a palm-crested coastal boulevard of parks, gardens and fountains. Take time out for a stroll from the chic marina to Corniche Park, a pleasant leafy sanctuary with facilities for bird watching and fishing.

The city has 10 km of pristine silver beaches, but with 400 km of coastline to explore, why not take a coastal cruise on a traditional dhow?

We at Holiday Inn Abu Dhabi are ideally sited for tourism events, with Abu Dhabi’s prime business sites and leisure attractions on our doorstep, and a fabulous range of facilities within the hotel.

Al Reem is a thriving centre of business, leisure and commerce, with shopping malls, amusement parks, museums and an aquarium.

Futaisi is a privately owned, environmentally protected island rife with history and wildlife, and a popular tourist spot. Lulu, the closest island to us at Holiday Inn Abu Dhabi, is a beautiful man-made getaway with cafeterias, restaurants and beaches. It will soon be accessible via a tunnel and bridge.

Holiday Inn Riyadh

Holiday Inn Riyadh

The capital of Saudi Arabia and its largest and most prosperous city, Riyadh is dominated by the skyline of its Central Business District. The sweeping tower of the Kingdom Centre, and stunning Art Deco detailing of the Al Faisaliyah Centre, mark Riyadh as a bustling modern hub of commerce and finance. But it is built on the foundations of a walled city that was founded 1,500 years ago. We at Holiday Inn Riyadh have three superbly appointed hotels, close to both Riyadh’s central business district and its cultural attractions.

Riyadh has doubled in size in the last 15 years and continues to expand. With a diverse economy and growing tourism industry, our Holiday Inn Riyadh hotels play an important role in the economy. Riyadh’s enviable highway system and easy access to King Khalid International Airport make it a magnet for corporate investment. A fertile city built on a desert oasis, it grew rich on its date palms and orchards. With decreasing reliance on its fossil fuel economy, the city is once more investing in agriculture, which dominates the conference calendar.

Find the Holiday Inn in Riyadh that’s right for you

We at Holiday Inn Riyadh have three hotels in prime locations. Our Holiday Inn Riyadh-Olaya is located in Riyadh’s commercial and business hub. Local to the shopping malls and Riyadh Exhibition Centre, it is ideal for international business conferences, whether held in our hotel or elsewhere in the city. The fully serviced conference rooms will seat up to 450 delegates, besides which we have a staffed business centre; spacious bedrooms; private business suites, and first-class recreational and dining facilities.

Our Holiday Inn Riyadh-Al Qasr venue was completely modernised in 2007, and offers outstandingly luxurious business accommodation at the heart of the Olaya Central Business District, adjoining the prestigious King Fahd road and with direct links to King Khaled International Airport. Our largest conference venue, it will accommodate up to 1,300 delegates. The state-of-the-art meeting rooms, stunning décor and gourmet dining facilities are matched by a level of service that ensures you will want for nothing during your stay.

Our Holiday Inn Riyadh Minhal hotel is in a prime location for those involved with medical or public administration, being close to the city hospitals, and government buildings. It is the ideal venue for break-out and training sessions, as the largest room, which accommodates up to 350 guests, can be broken down into three smaller ones.

Holiday Inn Riyadh – where tradition meets ambition

The modern Riyadh, while rich in stunning modern architecture, was built by razing the original ancient walls and fortresses to the ground. However, the city is working hard to promote its heritage, and though nothing can stop the urban sprawl reaching the surrounding towns, they are being protected. Traditional villages like Diriyah, Manfuha and Wadi Laban are enjoying a new-found interest in cultural investment, their red-brick architecture helping to promote the cultural side of Riyadh through tourism.

Riyadh is a popular city to hold conferences and business meetings, with a friendly persona and excellent conference facilities. We at Holiday Inn Riyadh offer an extensive range of facilities. Whether it’s an international product launch or team building events in the desert, our friendly staff will help you every step of the way to ensure your event is a success.
