Radisson offers ‘hybrid rooms’


Radisson has launched hybrid guest rooms and hybrid meetings rooms at the launch of the Radisson Collection Hotel, Grand Place Brussels.

Federico González, president & CEO, Radisson Hospitality, aid that the group needed to reinvent itself, with guests looking for greater flexibility.

González said: “This will allow you to have the best possible meetings in your own rooms. We can provide you with the right equipment, where you can meet people and also connect with people in different geographies.

“We need to reinvent ourselves and offer more personalisation. There’s no one solution fits all - different people want different things and we will have to be more flexible.”

The group’s meeting rooms will include technology to allow virtual meetings, while bedrooms will include printing options, wireless mice and stationary.

“With travel restrictions limiting mobility for attendees, along with concerns about the viability of large gatherings, we are adapting our meetings and events solutions in order to continue to support event planners while ensuring the health and safety of their attendees,” said Gonzalo Carpintero, Radisson Hotel Group’s VP of operations and head of meeting and event transformation in EMEA.

“We developed our hybrid meeting services in collaboration with leading technology brands such as Zoom to deliver engaging and highly interactive meetings.”
