Marriott International has launched the new Virtual Meetings by Marriott Bonvoy Events which offers event packages across its portfolio of hotels and resorts in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Australia & New Zealand.
Packages vary according to property and region, where the new offering will allow clients to combine the meeting package and audiovisual requirements into one billable package.
Participants can also look forward to a series of enhanced safety and cleanliness measures for meetings and events. For instance, hotels can accommodate different seating capacities and dedicated event teams will be on hand to consult with each meeting planner to review and align on expected set-up requirements in line with social distancing practices.
Where available, hotels will recommend live/virtual hybrid meetings through live-streaming capabilities to minimise social contact.
All Marriott International associates are required to have personal protective equipment including masks, and all associates will undergo mandatory temperature checks especially when on duty.
The virtual meeting package is available at JW Marriott Hotel Singapore South Beach; The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore; St. Regis Singapore; Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel; Sheraton Towers Singapore; Courtyard by Marriott Singapore Novena; and Four Points by Sheraton Singapore, Riverview.

Seating plans in line with government guidelines, individual catering for each attendee and elevated sanitization are provided as part of Marriottâ€™s cleanliness commitment.
