Even More Rewarding Reasons to Do Business


Even More Rewarding Reasons to Do Business
Crowne Plaza Auckland – the Place To Meet

Auckland 25 July 2008 – Meetings, conferences and events have become even more rewarding at Crowne Plaza Auckland with a new rewards programme and new contemporary style accommodation rooms.

“Crowne Plaza now offers an attractive loyalty programme giving clients even more reason to conference and stay at the hotel, earning reward points by simply booking room nights and including a food and beverage spend,” says Terry Holt, Crowne Plaza Auckland Business Development Director.

The recently launched Priority Club Meeting Rewards programme Meeting Planners for holding meetings at Crowne Plaza, as well as any of the other IHG hotels - which include InterContinental and Holiday Inn brands - not only in New Zealand but across Asia Pacific (excluding Japan) and North America.

Points can then be redeemed for rewards, including paying for future meetings at IHG hotels, free accommodation, airline miles, retail gift certificates and merchandise.

Packaged together with Crowne Plaza Auckland’s newly refurbished accommodation and conference rooms and its heart of the city location, the hotel is an excellent conference and event venue.

Crowne Plaza has further enhanced its business offering with the installation of new wireless internet access in all accommodation rooms, the Club Lounge and all conference rooms and pre-function areas.

“Wireless is also accessible in all public spaces of the hotel including Aria Restaurant and Bar as well as the Atrium on Elliott shopping complex,” says Holt.

Jayshree Dayal, Institute of Directors, Training and Events Manager, is one of Crowne Plaza’s first Priority Club Meeting Rewards members and says it’s a great incentive for conference and event organisers.

“It’s nice to get some recognition for your hard work and be able to use it for a holiday or break away when it suits. It’s the difference between getting a reward for yourself or not and is a great way of thanking you for your loyalty to the hotel chain,” she says.

The Crowne Plaza Auckland prides itself in its complete meeting package that is a unique combination of products and services. This includes a 2-hour response to all meeting enquiries, followed by a detailed proposal within 24 hours.

With 10 meeting rooms over 3 floors – a versatile 14 configurations with 4 of them offering natural light – plus a ballroom catering for up to 500 people Crowne Plaza is ‘the place to meet’.

Function spaces are positioned to enable delegates to move seamlessly between rooms for greater conferencing efficiencies. The Aria restaurant and bar is also conveniently located on the ground floor of the hotel with ample and easy access from all function spaces.
