Strategies & solutions
Satisfy clients’ top priorities
We listened to both perspectives from our two clients, then negotiated their special requests to bring local wine vendors on property for a Seattle wine tasting experience. This included having the hotel make special purchases of wine not normally available, plus acquiring the special permits needed for wine makers to pour at the event.
Showcase the best of Washington wineries
Our design team recreated the exact look and feel of each of the Seattle wine tasting rooms inside the hotel ballroom. We paired each wine in the various vignettes with small bites customized by the hotel’s culinary team.
Start each morning with intentional movement
We coordinated optional morning yoga classes in the hotel ballroom, led by a local yoga instructor and supported by the hotel’s fitness center with mats, water and towels. Every class was well-attended, and the instructor accommodated a wide range of skill levels with pose modifications during class.
Combine lively activity with a view
We worked with knowledgeable Seattle runners to lead attendees on Fun Runs with some of the best views of Seattle. The runs departed from the hotel and followed scenic routes around Lake Union and Seattle Center, where runners were treated to close up views of the infamous Space Needle.
Stay nimble with shuttle transfers
Our clients proactively offered optional shuttle transfers from both the offsite venue and for airport departures. With an ever-changing end time at the off-site event, we constantly updated our staff and shuttle drivers with new information to ensure we had enough vehicles to return guests to the hotel. While some guests passed on the transfer to enjoy a pleasant walk or find their own way to the airport, we were always staged and ready for those seeking the transfer.
