Starwood hotels in Macau go high-tech for eventsMacau, August 25, 2016
BOTH the Sheraton Grand Macao Hotel, Cotai Central and The St Regis Macao, Cotai Central have debuted tech initiatives for business event planners and guests.
For MICE planners, there is the secure digital meeting planning tool eVent Portfolio which helps to streamline the event-planning process and enables event planners to be environmentally-friendly.
First of its kind in Asia, the centralised web-based tool integrates all documents and correspondence, and sorts them by time and date into an easy-to-use and intuitive user interface. eVent Portfolio can be used on a PC, Mac or mobile devices, where users can plan events easily and connect with other parties by texting through eVent 911, available three days before an event.
This application is offered free to meeting planners, and Sheraton Grand Macao Hotel and The St Regis Macao are the only hotels in Macau to offer it.

“eVent Portfolio is Starwood Hotels and Resort’s game-changing, web-based tool that makes planning an event faster, easier and more efficient, and offers an organised, systematic and detailed approach to putting together and managing any medium- to large-scale event. (It also) features a special sustainability tab that lets planners track how much paper, energy and waste they are reducing during their meetings. (This will) kick off a new era of mobile event planning, one that centres around going green,” said Daniella Tonetto, general manager of sales and marketing for Sheraton Grand Macao Hotel and The St Regis Macao.
In addition to eVent Portfolio, all of the 4,400 rooms across both hotels will feature complimentary Handy phone devices that allow all hotel guests unlimited local and international calls (to China, US, UK, France, Australia, and Singapore), along with unlimited data access.
