Pullman Luang Prabang partners local social enterprises for new MICE offer

Pullman Luang Prabang has launched a Meet and Play MICE package that blends outdoor experiences, socially-responsible events and corporate meetings together.

The package, bookable from now until August 31, 2019, enables groups to create their own customised corporate retreat, including full- or half-day meetings, one free room night for every 15 paid rooms, round-trip airport transfers for one VIP guest, discounts on group cocktails and dinners, and more.

Event organisers can choose from the 368m2 Nam Khong Ballroom and 116m2 Nam Khan function room, both of which can be divided into smaller spaces, and Le Salon, the boardroom. This trio of flexible venues creates options for events of all sizes, accommodating up to 300 delegates.

The property has also teamed up with a series of local partners to create unique off-site activities that help corporate groups strengthen their bonds and give back to the local community.

For example, corporate guests can visit the Laos Buffalo Dairy, the first dairy farm in Laos which supplies local products including buffalo mozzarella to Pullman Luang Prabang. Delegates will learn how this social enterprise is working with Lao farmers and diversifying the local agricultural industry. Guests will be able to meet the owners, Susie Martin and Rachel O’Shea, enjoy close encounters with their 150-plus buffalos, visit the dairy and taste their products first-hand.

Alternatively, groups can head to Ock Pop Tok, a sustainable textiles business that empowers the women of Laos. Launched in 2000 by local weaver Veo Douangdala and British photographer Jo Smith, the organisation works with more than 500 artisans throughout the country. Event planners can arrange for their delegates to visit the textile factory, or take part in a group weaving class.

At Pullman Luang Prabang, groups can head out into the paddy fields, where rice for the hotel’s all-day dining restaurant L’Atelier is harvested from. Seasonal rice cultivation classes can be organised for corporate groups, allowing delegates to discover this ancient Asian occupation. Further enhancing the resort’s environmental ethos, the unused rice husks are donated to MandaLao Elephant Conservation Camp, which cares for rescued elephants.

In addition, Pullman Luang Prabang’s events team can create inspirational activities tailored to the specific requirements of each group.
