Meritus boosts MICE programme

Luxury Asian brand Meritus Hotels & Resorts is launching a user-friendly Meetings, Incentives, Conventions and Exhibitions (MICE) programme.Meetings at Meritus on 11 October 2006 at IT & CMA with the aim of making the life of meeting planners easier by offering a comprehensive set of service promise and tools.

The inspiration of Meetings at Meritus revolves around the delivery of its seven essential service standards to ensure the success of every MICE event that is held at its properties dotted along key spots of the Asia Pacific region.

Being smaller in portfolio by comparison to its competitors, Meritus is leveraging on the many benefits that come with its size.

‘Because we are small, we are able to listen more and respond quicker… be more creative and flexible in our product and service offerings in order to cater to the various needs of the MICE market.’ commented Frank Foster, Senior Vice President of Marketing & Sales for the group.

From a next business day response time to ‘Request for Proposal’ (RFP), global Meetings Desks around the world and just one contact point for the customer to liaise on all their needs, Meritus is setting tough standards on itself so as to provide ease and pleasure of having events hosted at its properties.


One key tool for meeting planners is the online information available on Meritus’ website ( The Meetings section saves planners’ time as it provides a facility search on venue specifications, floor plans viewing as well as request for proposal form, all with a click of the button.

Another value-added online feature is the ‘Never miss a thing’ section that covers planning tips as well as destination information on places of attractions and things to do surrounding each of the properties for the all-rounded event.

To mark the launch of the programme, the group is rewarding online bookers with a complimentary ‘Weekends at Meritus’ package for every meeting booking that materialises and is offering attractive Bed & Breakfast rates from 11 October 2006 to 30 June 2007.
