Orient-Express Offers Website Dedicated to Group Travel
February 8, 2014
It is a first for the Company and is aimed at those who are searching for inspiration in creating authentic one-of-a-kind experiences and who are keen to discover the latest news, group offers and the unique event spaces OEH has to offer.
Regularly updated with the most current content to ensure stress free planning, the new website is broken down into different sections, making it easy for readers to find the information they need for both leisure and corporate group travel under one ‘roof'. At the start of each event page is Our Promise, which outlines OEH's commitment to group travel.
Section Highlights Include:
The Collection: This section of the website contains separate pages dedicated to each OEH property. Here event planners can find key information on room numbers, venues sizes, best contact, dining and incentive options. Realizing that the destination can be just as important as the property itself there are facts and details on each location, from Machu Picchu to St Petersburg. It is on the individual property pages that users can download and view e-brochures, videos, menus and power point presentations on the hotels.
Great Group Rates
Special rates are highlighted here for the next 12 months and are specifically customized to cater for parties of 10 rooms or more. Continuously updated through-out the year to ensure that the best offers are available, the page is broken down into calendar months, so planners can find the best offers for the date they are looking to hold their event.
Corporate Events: Whether for 10 or 500 delegates, OEH's striking venues provide privacy, discretion and notable settings for discussions. Examples of creative campaigns are used to illustrate the venues, such as a luxury fashion brand's photo-shoot at Grand Hotel Timeo in Sicily, the exclusive charter of the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express by a perfume company or a car launch at Copacabana Palace in Brazil.
Off-the-beaten-track activities and fun ideas for team events are shared here. OEH has plenty of incentive travel options for intrepid travelers who don't want to skimp on luxury, including; rafting down the Arno River, launched this year at Villa San Michele in Florence and paintballing at Grand Hotel Europe in St Petersburg. There are also longer itinerary suggestions that combine a number of properties, such as a seven day Italian itinerary from London to Florence and a seven night journey through Peru.
Wedding & Celebrations
OEH can host magical weddings, intimate gatherings and family reunions to the highest specifications. Venues include El Encanto in Santa Barbara, which opened in March 2013, where clients can choose between five indoor and five outdoor settings for their wedding. A more unusual option, for just two people, is the underwater wedding at Hotel Splendido in Portofino. Idyllic venues for LGBT weddings and civil partnerships are also featured in the Weddings & Celebrations section including La Samanna in the Caribbean and The Royal Scotsman luxury train.
Whether it's learning a life skill or developing a new talent, today's discerning travelers strive for more from their holiday and the Leisure Groups section outlines the different tours and experiences available to leisure group travelers. Examples include ‘The Chase of Charleston' organized by Charleston Place Hotel in South Carolina, whereby guests are armed with a Polaroid camera, details of historical locations and a list of tasks to complete. Alternatively, with a host of first-class cookery schools worldwide a culinary experience with OEH is never far away. La Résidence Phou Vao in Luang Prabang, Laos is a highlight; here guests are invited to learn the secrets of preparing exotic Laotian cuisine.
Orient-Express hotels, restaurants, trains and cruises can accommodate any group size for exclusive takeovers from as little as six to as many as 300 guests. For an intimate retreat, The Royal Scotsman can be privately chartered to take just 36 guests straight to the heart of the Highlands. Like a fine country house on wheels itineraries can be tailor-made and include a host of activities such as whisky tasting, visits to ruined castles and clay pigeon shooting. Larger venues include La Residencia in Deia, Mallorca which features 67 rooms and Reid's Palace in Madeira which has 163 rooms.
Planning an event has never been so simple, meeting and event planners just need to visit
and register their details for unlimited access to Orient-Express Hotel's group's website. Those that sign-up to the website will also have the option to receive a regular newsletter with all the latest groups news.
