The need for meeting rooms in Aberdeen

Its not hard to see why there is such demand for Aberdeen meeting rooms. Aberdeen is a city which has been shaped by centuries of industry. Fishing, stone quarrying, agriculture, the offshore oil industry and two major universities have all played their part in building the economy, with an unemployment rate thats among the lowest in Scotland, at just 2%.

During the 19th century, herring fishing and granite quarrying were the mainstays of the economy, as can be seen by the iconic harbour and striking granite architecture Aberdeen is called the Granite City, and retains a small fishing fleet. Built at the mouth of the rivers Dee and Don, whisky distilling is another important industry. Agriculture, engineering, paper, textiles, and chemicals also continue to play an important part. However, the thing which has really helped Aberdeens economy remain buoyant is the discovery of offshore oil in the 1970s.

Modern Aberdeen diverse, vibrant and cultural

Nicknamed the Oil Capital of Europe, Aberdeens oil economy has remained stable despite slumps in oil prices and repeated recessions. While other parts of the UK floundered, Aberdeen stayed prosperous, with retail, housing and employment all remaining buoyant. Today, it is a highly popular area to live and work.

Aberdeen hosts a number of important industry conferences, one of the most important being the bi-annual Offshore Europe exhibition and conference. This is where many of the technologies of tomorrow are created with students from the citys two universities no doubt swelling the graduate recruitment ranks. By contrast, Aberdeen has a thriving arts calendar too. The city centre is a vibrant mix of shopping malls, bars, clubs and restaurants, with a large student population to keep things lively. Tourism, retail and leisure are all important to the economy.

In Aberdeen, there is a continuing need for well-equipped meeting rooms. Aberdeens business and residential populations can rely on us at Holiday Inn to supply that need.

Booking meeting rooms in Manchester

Booking meeting rooms in Manchester

The first industrialised city in the world, the dynamic, thriving city of Manchester is rich with history and culture, and second only to London in terms of importance. Meeting rooms in Manchester are booked throughout the year, for anything from international trade fairs to private board meetings. We at Holiday Inn have a number of hotels providing meeting rooms in Manchester, all within easy reach of the airport, railway stations and motorways.

Once a city of “dark satanic mills”, the Manchester of today is clean and vibrant; a leading centre of media, sport, education, commerce and the arts. Not surprisingly, meeting rooms in Manchester are constantly needed, by both local companies and those outside the area.

Reasons to book meeting rooms in Manchester

Manchester is the perfect location for international business conferences. The fastest-growing city in the UK, and the second-best place to have a business after London, it showcases the best that Britain has to offer. Manchester’s wide range of cultural, arts and sporting attractions – including the most valuable football club in the world, Manchester United – is matched by a glittering central business district that is one of the financial hubs of Europe.

Manchester University brings a constant flood of young graduates, keeping the city vibrant, alive and forward-thinking. The central business district is an eclectic blend of architectural delights; Manchester’s rich industrial heritage evident in historic buildings such as the neo-Gothic Town Hall and Piccadilly. Glittering modern towers, such as the Intercontinental building, are pointers of the city’s modern success. Prolonged investment means Manchester is currently undergoing yet more growth, with a number of new towers under construction which, when finished, will be the tallest buildings in Manchester.

Meetings in Central Manchester

The factors driving Manchester’s economy are varied. Financial, retail, health, legal, cultural, media and professional companies all have offices in the Central Business District. Manchester Arndale Centre is the largest shopping mall in the UK; the world’s largest consumer-owned business, the Co-operative Group, is also based here. Obviously, the central business district needs well structured meeting rooms to function.

We at Holiday Inn have several conference hotels with meeting rooms in or near Manchester City Centre. Our Manchester West venue is only minutes away from the International Convention Centre and Manchester Piccadilly rail station, yet is set in pleasant grounds with a Topiary courtyard that is perfect for summer weddings. Salford Quays, Media City, the Lowry Centre and Manchester United football club and Trafford shopping mall are all located close by, with easy accessibility to the motorways and airport.

Meeting rooms outside the city centre

Our Manchester Airport venue is just seven miles from the city centre, and benefits from a nine-room dedicated meeting centre plus a further six fully-serviced meeting rooms. In Manchester Central Park, meanwhile, you can enjoy the benefits of a fully equipped Meeting Academy, with self-contained business centre and even a mini-golf course to relax on afterwards.

Meeting rooms in Manchester are booked for every conceivable purpose, from product launches to fund-raising events. We at Holiday Inn offer a wide range of quality meeting rooms in Manchester hotels, at highly competitive rates.

Booking meeting rooms in Najran with Holiday Inn

Booking meeting rooms in Najran with Holiday Inn

Ancient and fascinating, in an area of unique scenic beauty, the city of Najran is one of the jewels of Saudi Arabia. With compelling archaeological sites, modern scenic attractions, and a thriving business district company constantly in need of meeting rooms, Najran hotels have to cater for both business and leisure visitors – something we at Holiday Inn Najran are particularly well equipped to do.

Just 7 km from the modern city centre, yet close to cultural and scenic attractions like Al-Ukhdood, the Najran Dam and the Empty Quarter, we at Holiday Inn Najran are located less than 20 km from the International Airport, and have ample parking facilities. Our meeting rooms and banquet hall –free to delegates dining and staying at the hotel – house up to 670 delegates, with stylish accommodation that includes 12 suites and 5 luxurious villas; perfect for private get-togethers with colleagues. Our 4 superb restaurants offer a wide range of European and Arabic cuisines, while our gym, spa and outside pool are perfect for after-hours relaxation.

If you want an interesting, scenic location for your meeting rooms, Najran has it all. Located in a lush fertile valley, or wadi, below the Asir and Yemen highlands, Najran province has been a major agricultural area for 4000 years. The swathes of date palms and orange groves, rich in birdlife, abruptly end where the river meets the desert at Rub’ Al-Khali (the Empty Quarter) – a popular destination for jeep safaris.

The majority of the populace belong to the ancient Yam tribe, who work the 100 or so farms along the fertile wadi – or have jobs in the thriving modern city. Incorporating many of the original buildings of Abul Saud, the town it grew up around, Najran has one of the most attractive central business districts in Saudi Arabia. Traditional souks and mosques sit alongside sympathetically designed modern banks, shops, boutiques and offices, while palm-lined parks and avenues offer pleasant shade from the sun.

Whatever your reason may be for booking meeting rooms, Najran’s old city of Al-Ukhdood is definitely worth taking time out to investigate. The first Yemeni city to fall to Roman occupation, it was once an important centre for trading in spices, located on the main trading routes between the Mediterranean and South Arabia. It was originally surrounded by a massive circular wall; parts of this can still be seen even today, and its name translates as “The Ditch” or “The Groove”. A defensive moat can still be seen, and the site is still being excavated by archaeologists today. There are enigmatic pre-Islamic carvings among the ruins, which feature in a fascinating museum devoted to the site.

Najran Dam, one of the wonders of the modern world. 35 km from the city centre, it is crossed by a 4.5 metre wide road, with spectacular views of the Najran Valley. Arrange a corporate tour, and you can also see the fabulous Al-Aan Palace, beneath which are the strange, castle-like red brick houses unique to the Najran area.

Booking meeting rooms at Holiday Inn Jeddah

Booking meeting rooms at Holiday Inn Jeddah

Located in the centre of Jeddah’s downtown commercial district, close to Al-Balad Old Town and just 5 miles from the fabulous beaches of the Red Sea, we at Holiday Inn Jeddah are the ideal choice for those wanting meeting rooms in a pleasant, central location. Only 40 km from Jeddah international airport and 60 km from the Holy City of Makkah, we offer first-class facilities to business visitors from both Saudi Arabia and abroad.

Jeddah-Al Salam is the second largest city in Saudi Arabia, and the gateway to the holy Muslim cities of Mecca and Medina. When Saudi businesses look for meeting rooms, Jeddah’s Old City district, where we at Holiday Inn are located, is especially favourable. The beautiful old Medina Gate is sadly all that is left of the original 7th century city walls – but the internal areas remain. A tour of old Al-Balad’s crumbling coral stone buildings and traditional souks shows you the alternative side of modern Saudi Arabia; an ideal introduction for businesses wanting to invest here.

Jeddah is currently experiencing an economic boom, and is now considered to be the business capital of the Middle East, after Dubai. We at Holiday Inn Jeddah have the advantage of being close to both Al-Balad and Jeddah’s vibrant modern city centre. Conveniently located for the malls and designer outlets of Medina Road and Tahlia Street, we are also close to King Abdullah Street, the city’s central business district. This thoroughfare has a particular need for well equipped meeting rooms – Jeddah’s most important companies are located here, including some of Saudi Arabia’s biggest conglomerates. With a major new CBD planned, Jeddah looks set to overcome Dubai as the Middle East’s centre of commerce.

We at Holiday Inn Jeddah have two large ballrooms able to seat up to 1,600 delegates, as well as 4 smaller meeting rooms for 10 to 60 delegates. With a state-of-the-art Business Centre, high speed internet access, Executive Floors with luxurious Executive Club Suites, and bedrooms equipped with desk lamps and work stations, we offer all the business traveller could need.

We’re equally well equipped for leisure guests – Jeddah is one of the Middle East’s leading tourist destinations. Our air-conditioned rooms are complemented by our fitness centre, spa and gym – ideal for those times when you don’t want to head for the beach or tourist spots. Our rooms have cable and satellite TV, too, while the cuisine in our Al Rashan restaurant is a delight to the eye as well as the palate. Being a strictly Muslim city, alcohol is banned throughout Jeddah. However, our cocktail lounge offers a comfortable place to sit and work while enjoying a fruit juice or coffee.

Haggle at the souks of the Old Town, or shop for designer goods in Tahlia Street. Visit the flamboyant Corniche, with its theme parks and beaches, or take a drive out of town to the Red Sea beaches, coral reefs and diving centres. Whatever your reason for booking meeting rooms, Jeddah is the place to be.

Holiday Inn meeting rooms in Harare

Holiday Inn meeting rooms in Harare

There is a strong need for meeting rooms in Harare, the capital of Zimbabwe. Known up to1982 as Salisbury, it is the country’s largest city, and an important hub of trade, communication and commerce. Harare is a stoically independent city with a strong commitment to improvement and investment. We at Holiday Inn Harare play an important role in promoting commerce and tourism to Zimbabwe.

cheap all inclusive vacation packagese
Harare has undergone many changes in recent times. The demolition of the slums and shanty towns, while controversial at the time, was followed by a mass rebuilding program to improve living conditions and reduce crime. Recently, a two-way trade and investment memorandum of understanding was drawn up between the Zimbabwe Investment Authority and South Africa’s Trade and Investment Limpopo, to promote investment and further expand the economy. This is already proving fruitful.

allegiant flights
Investment and finance places great demand on well equipped meeting rooms. Harare business people are fortunate in having us at Holiday Inn to call upon. Our eight modern, well-equipped meeting rooms will seat up to 300 people in air-conditioned comfort, with a high-tech business centre and internet access. Our attractive, high-rise premises are conveniently located in the city centre, close to the shopping malls, markets, and business and financial districts. We are also surrounded by many of Harare’s loveliest green spaces, including Coronation Park, Alexandra Park and Harare Botanical Gardens. With ample parking and rapid links to the airport, we are the perfect choice for both business and leisure guests.

As a city, Harare has much to be proud of. In recent years, it has hosted several important world summits, and in 1995 hosted the 6th All-Africa Games. More recently, it hosted some of the cricket matches for the 2003 World Cup. With a new joint-leadership now bringing a settled peace and prosperity, emphasis is being placed on investment and development of the country’s mining, manufacturing and agricultural industries.

jet blue airlines airfares
Harare is an important trading zone for tobacco, cotton, maize and citrus fruit products, with textile, steel, chemical and gold mining plants. It is also surrounded by some of the most beautiful countryside in Africa. When the city was established in the 19th century it was an area of swampy, ill-drained river land. This lushness remains obvious in the city parks, and the gardens and tennis courts of the affluent colonial houses in the suburbs. Drive beyond the city boundaries, and you will discover beautiful areas like Lake Manyame and Lake Chivero Recreational parks.

mohican outdoor
With major attractions like the 11th century ruins of Great Zimbabwe, Victoria Falls and Mana Pools National Park, plus the region’s black rhinos and other wildlife, to its credit, Zimbabwe is embracing ecotourism in a big way. Several small companies devoted to this area have their offices in the capital. Usually located in attractive suburbs like Mount Pleasant, these businesses also need meeting rooms in Harare. With facilities for anything from a 10-person boardroom meeting to a 300 delegate conference, we at Holiday Inn Harare are the obvious answer.

Holiday Inn Meeting rooms

Holiday Inn Meeting rooms

If you are looking for well equipped, conveniently located conference facilities in the Benelux area, our Holiday Inn Meeting rooms are now better value than ever.

We at Holiday Inn pride ourselves on having a wide choice of well equipped conference hotels in key areas of the states. Locations range from bustling modern cities like Eindhoven and Brussels, to picturesque mediaeval towns equally suitable for business or leisure activities, like Ostend and Liege. From Amsterdam to Zeebrugge, if you need meeting facilities in the Benelux, we have Holiday Inn Meeting rooms nearby.

Booking Holiday Inn Meeting rooms online

Business in the Benelux runs via the internet, so it follows that this is the way most meeting rooms are booked. Unfortunately, it’s rarely a straight-forward process. Some hotel chains have beautiful facilities once you arrive – but actually finding and booking rooms online is a nightmare. Complicated navigation tools, unhelpful links and lack of information are just three of the problems business users face – frustrating, when you’ve got a conference to plan as well!

We at Holiday Inn take the opposite approach. We pride ourselves on the quality of our meeting rooms and the high standards of our accommodation, and want your booking experience to be as stress-free and enjoyable as your stay in the hotel itself. We start by making it easy to find the perfect venue. You don’t need to scroll down a long list of our Benelux hotels (there are nearly 30 of them). Simply type in the name of the town or location – a postcode will do – plus the number of delegates, and choose how wide you want the search to be. Then just hit return.

We offer meeting rooms for every kind of occasion, so you can tailor your booking to your exact specification by filtering the results. For example, if your event is based around corporate hospitality you can search specifically for Holiday Inn Meeting rooms in rural areas, or near golf courses. Depending on your delegates’ travelling arrangements, you can narrow your search down to hotels near railway stations, motorways and airports. There are lots of ways you can use the Advanced Search facility, to tailor the venue perfectly.

Meeting rooms for every purpose

Of course, it is very important that the meeting rooms are specific to their use. Our Holiday Inn Meeting rooms come in all shapes and sizes, including U-shaped, banquet, theatre, reception, boardroom, cabaret and tutorial-room format, to seat anything from a dozen to several hundred delegates. To get exactly the right size and type of room for your needs, simply filter your search accordingly.

There are some things which are common to all our hotels, of course. Like superb personal service, with a Dedicated Meetings Host who will look after you from the moment you book your room to the moment you check out. We offer a whole lot of other incentives too, such as our Business Club Rewards Scheme and low-rate last minute deals.
