Dubai hotels pick Newmarket solution

InterContinental Dubai Festival City and the Crowne Plaza Dubai
Festival City have announced that they will implement the Delphi
Multi-Property Edition sales & banqueting solution from Newmarket
International for selling and delivering events and conferences.  Tom Meyer, Area General Manager, InterContinental Hotels Group, Dubai
Festival City, stated, “The InterContinental and Crowne Plaza hotels at
Dubai Festival City represent a key component of our global growth plan.  We
needed to carry our standards of quality and service right through our
events and banqueting business, so we chose Delphi.  The success that
InterContinental Hotels Group properties have had with Delphi around the
world assures us that we will be building our groups, conference, and events
business in the UAE on a strong foundation of technology and service.”

A shared resource for all of the InterContinental Hotels Group properties at
Dubai Festival City, the state-of-the-art Events Centre is situated directly
below the Crowne Plaza Dubai Festival City.  It is the only waterfront
events and conference centre in Dubai, with dramatic views of historic Dubai
Creek. It encompasses 4,500 square meters (13,500 square feet) of conference
and events space across two levels, divisible into ten break-out rooms
offering services for small board meetings or large banquets of up to 1,800
guests.  There is a 24-hour business centre and hi-speed Wi-Fi internet
access in all public areas.


InterContinental Hotels Group expects to establish the Dubai Festival City
properties as a Middle East hub for groups, conferences, and events of all
types as Dubai continues its phenomenal growth as a center for business and
tourism.  Delphi Multi-Property Edition enables InterContinental Hotels
Group to set and achieve clear sales targets toward that goal, deliver
excellent service on large and small events alike, and maximize return on
its stunning Dubai Festival City assets.
