Singapore, Singapore (PressExposure) February 23, 2009 -- A new executive boardroom has just been completed at Novotel Clarke Quay. The new room takes the total number of meeting rooms at the hotel to 7, including one grand ballroom.
Resident Manager, Simon Jones, expects that the new executive boardroom will help the luxury Singapore hotel to further increase its share of the lucrative MICE market.
"The tailored service that Novotel Clarke Quay provides is a huge factor for MICE customers, and the extra capacity will be extensively utilized", Jones said. "In addition to a personal planner for events, we offer world-class catering, innovative break activities and schedules, budget reviews for large events and modern, ergonomic facilities".
The MICE market in Singapore accounts for 40% of tourism spending, and 30% of visitors to the country. The events market in Singapore draws high yielding visitors, with the world's first F1 night race held recently generating S$168 million (US$109.65 million) in revenue for the city. Jones believes that Novotel Clarke Quay is ideally placed for events tourism accommodation.
"We have quite a large capacity, and an excellent location with respect to events venues, neighboring the Suntec Convention Centre, Orchard Road and the World Trade Center", said Mr Jones.
The new executive boardroom at Novotel Clarke Quay complements a recent renovation of all 401 guest rooms.
