The Grand Hyatt Hong Kong showcased its line-up of hybrid meeting solutions – created in collaboration with Encore, an audiovisual and event technology company – during a recent event.
For instance, the Grand Ballroom showcased a built-in LED wall with a picture-in-picture function, which can capture live stream from other event locations. The hotel also provides an Event Concierge app (which aids event organisers with on-site requests), as well as a Chime app. Designed by Encore, the Chime app comes with multiple functions such as live recording, the display of videos and feeds, the exchange of e-business cards and a chat room for social and networking, as well as live polling and voting.
On the mezzanine floor, the Drawing Room showcased a portable backdrop that comes with a lighting panel that can create special patterns or effects for the event. There are also playback monitors, for speakers to observe the situations at all venues.
Other hybrid solutions include a green wall set up, webcams and conference microphones. In addition to the above two spaces, Grand Hyatt Hong Kong has 20 other function spaces, such as the Lounge, Chief Executive Suite with a harbour view, and the 110m2 Ambassador Harbour View Suite.
The hotel has also assured planners that they will ensure all hygiene and social distancing measures are in place. This also means that coffee breaks will now also come pre-packed in a box and handed to each delegate.
