Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, the world’s leading luxury hospitality company, today launched a worldwide campaign celebrating Global Meetings Industry Day (#GMID19), the annual celebration that profiles the importance of business meetings, events and incentive travel to individuals, businesses and communities around the world.

The 2019 GMID campaign celebrates the people of Four Seasons whose skill, creativity and innovation create exceptional event experiences that go above and beyond the ordinary.

“Our Four Seasons meetings and events teams are true masters of their craft, creating personalised, innovative events that make the extraordinary happen,” says Ben Trodd, Senior Vice President, Sales and Hotel Marketing, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. “On Global Meetings Industry Day, we thank our partners for entrusting us with their most high-profile gatherings, and we also recognise the talented Four Seasons craftspeople who transform our properties and bring these events to life. Their dedicated efforts, creativity and passion continue to impress guests from around the world and ensure our clients trust and return to Four Seasons year after year.”

From an exclusive Florentine palace dinner alongside the Duomo curated by Four Seasons Hotel Firenze, to a private mixology class led by one of the world’s leading mixologists at the renowned Fifty Mils bar in Four Seasons Hotel Mexico City, event planners have confidence in Four Seasons to create customised, unique events that are thoughtfully curated for any occasion.

Meetings and events are an important business for Four Seasons, and property teams work seamlessly together to craft custom events that transform spaces, celebrate food and beverage craftsmanship and deliver Four Seasons service excellence. No event is identical, and Four Seasons continues to lead the industry by transporting events outside of traditional ballrooms and into the inspiring, expansive world of Four Seasons across each property. Four Seasons function spaces are purposefully designed to allow for flexibility and personalisation, and planners can leverage the full extent of Four Seasons services, amenities and people when choosing to book an exclusive or buyout.

Here’s what industry experts around the world are saying about meetings and events at Four Seasons:

“The reason I continue to book with Four Seasons is the trust I have, not only with the brand, but with the salespeople who I’ve worked with over the years. When you’re bringing a customer to a Four Seasons hotel, or booking a piece of business there, you know the end result is always a win-win. It’s consistently a perfect program from start to finish.”  – Deanne Vigil, Regional Vice President, HelmsBriscoe

“We are always proud to partner with Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts – the passion from their global team sets them apart. Their high-touch delivery gives us confidence to place our business with them.” – Sue Gill, Managing Director, Your Event Solutions

“Four Seasons is synonymous with quality and outstanding service. The mention of Four Seasons alone is enough to generate excitement among our most discerning clients who are also world travellers. Four Seasons makes our job easy.” – James Koh, CMP, Senior Consultant, Amway Japan G.K.

To kick-off #GMID19, Four Seasons launched a video highlighting a transformative event at Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat, A Four Seasons Hotel, brought to life by the property’s team of masters whose craftsmanship and expertise curated an immersive, one-of-a-kind garden brunch. This Four Seasons event provides a glimpse into the creativity and inspiration seen in each and every one of the company’s hotels around the world every day.
