Marriott meetings in Malaysia promise a dose of local culture


Marriott International’s new MY Meetings by Marriott International series is bringing authentic Malaysian culture into the meeting experience, in response to the growing demand for event localisation among attendees.

Sho Hwee, Marriott International, area director of sales & distribution, Singapore, Malaysia & The Maldives, shared: “The MY Meetings by Marriott International concept aims to showcase authentic, experiential options that elevate Malaysia’s colourful culture, food and heritage, for a more enriching business meetings experience in our Malaysian hotels and resorts.”

A cultural performance kicks off the launch of Marriott’s new meeting packages in Malaysia

For instance, Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur Hotel showcases the nation’s multiculturalism through cuisines from different regions in Malaysia. The hotel also presents an unforgettable way to conclude a productive day of business with an indulgent “Sky’s the limit meeting dinner”, floating above the city overlooking the Kuala Lumpur City Centre at sunset.

At the administrative capital of Putrajaya, Le Meridien Putrajaya Hotel’s Malaysian themed package offers batik painting and traditional games that can be conducted during coffee breaks. The hotel’s chefs will also demonstrate the art of making the perfect teh tarik (a hot milk tea beverage) or how to skilfully wrap nasi lemak in a banana leaf.

Meanwhile, the beachfront property of The Ritz-Carlton, Langkawi, offers a vibrant outdoor street food concept showcasing local flavours. There are also Malaysian-themed coffee break stations, and a theatrical staging of the teh tarik tea-pulling ceremony.

These curated meeting packages are available at 17 participating Marriott International hotels and resorts in Malaysia up to December 31, 2018.
