Marriott Conference, Banqueting and Event Spaces
The relaunched Marriott Conference, Banqueting and Event Spaces offer a high level of comfort, variety and flexibility in the work and play environment. The new facilities reinvent a tired conference suite to create a dynamic and vibrant environment which supports and promotes productive and innovative meetings and social events.
EPR's design opened up the hotel's first-floor conference suites and extended them into the adjoining underused and non-revenue-generating back of house areas to provide generous free-flowing spaces with improved flexibility and connectivity. Two multifunctional bars at each end of the floor act as gravitational anchors, providing adaptable centrepieces for guests to meet, work and collaborate.
The interior design subtly references the airport location, featuring bespoke carpet patterns inspired by the geometry of the airport runways and discreet travel and flight references incorporated into signage, furniture and accessories. Elegant movable units inspired by vintage luggage trunks can transition from coffee service to cocktail stations and check-in desks for events delegates, whilst multifunctional bespoke booths, window benches and high tables provide an array of high-tech seating options.
