Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts announced their new Exclusives and Buyouts program for their guests. The program is aimed to accommodate groups who are coming to the hotel for meetings.

“At Four Seasons we’re in the business of making memorable experiences happen for our guests, and that includes our group clients,” says Jonathan Sicroff, vice president, global sales. “On many occasions, the needs and ambitions of our clients are so big that we open up entire properties exclusively for their use, resulting in a world of benefits for both hosts and participants. The extraordinary opportunity to have a Four Seasons all to yourself may have been the MICE industry’s best kept secret—until now.”

When groups book a Four Seasons Buyout, they secure all hotel rooms and suites as well as function spaces and all outdoor pools. When they book a Four Season Exclusive the group can take over the property, including hotel rooms, suites, function spaces, restaurants, lounges, spas and fitness centers.

Benefits of these new offers include: a VIP experience, groups-assured privacy, complete access to unique venues and access to the Four Seasons catered banquets. To ensure availability of the buyout programs, event hosts should reach out to the sales representatives at individual Four Seasons hotels.

Through responses to bi-weekly surveys, Global Business Travel Association members have indicated that domestic busines travel is ramping up after months of struggle.  

 

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

Choosing a career in the event industry is not for the faint of heart. Let’s face it: Event planning is stressful. The last-minute changes, demands from clients and surmounting urgency of a quickly approaching event can make it difficult to maintain a healthy work-life balance.

As a new mother, I’m right there with you and need just as much help developing a healthy work-life balance. In my experiences working in events, I’ve found the following to be helpful ways to care for my mental health, despite being in a stressful profession:
