Wellness workshops, hassle-free check-ins, and in-room wellness experiences are part of the second installation of Hilton’s Sustainability MICE Series that was first rolled out in 2022.
Over two days, 15 Malaysian delegates, comprising members of the media and Hilton’s corporate clients, participated in The Heart of Hospitality: Wellness experience at the DoubleTree by Hilton Putrajaya Lakeside in Malaysia.
Elements during the experience included a hassle-free, smooth check-in process where the spacious executive lounge was transformed with healthy snacks and welcome drinks for delegates.
To rejuvenate the body, mind and spirit, wellness workshops included breathwork and movement exercises to invigorate the body post lunch, as well as a sunrise yoga session.
A workshop for the mind was led by coach Alex Tan, who taught a tool called Disruptive Thinking to motivate participants to be their best selves and not to settle for mediocrity.
Next, Eugenie Chan, a certified coach in the scientifically-verified branding tool 23plusone, led a purpose-finding workshop, while as part of wellness for the soul, Coach Sarah Lian provided a sound healing experience after dinner which helped relax the body and calm the mind after an eventful day.
Sustainable, local produce was served during breaks and main meals, while the DoubleTree spa provider, Mandara Spa, gave 15-minute massages.
The idea behind the programme was to showcase how Hilton can creatively assist meeting planners to incorporate wellness experiences into their programmes for meeting and conference delegates.
Leo Lee, national director of sales, Hilton Malaysia, shared: “Traditional meetings and conferences can leave delegates feeling drained, which is why this experience was designed to be customised to enhance any existing agenda. Doing so helps to stimulate the mind while also promoting relaxation for a more holistic approach.
“Hilton is dedicated to advocating sustainable practices at business events in all venues, thus ensuring greater peace of mind to sustainability advocates, as wellness continues to grow increasingly vital. From spa therapy to meditative sessions to nutritious meals, incorporating wellness can elevate events and create a unique and unforgettable experience.”
