MICE facilities at ITC Sheraton Park Hotel Tower

A hotel is not just about rooms and food. Good part of the money also comes from facilitating events. MICE stands for Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Events. Providing venue for these ensures lots of footfalls into a hotel and good visibility when an event is publicized.

All star hotels dedicate space for conducting events and ITC Sheraton park hotel and tower too has a set of facilities that cater to all kinds of corporate events and needs.

Board Room
Board room in the tower wing is very colourful and offers a thought provoking ambiance. With comfortable seating and best available connectivity and communication devices, taking that million dollar decision can now be done in style!
I did give a feedback that exposed metal handles of the chairs can be chilling sometimes, particularly if the participants are not wearing full sleeves. I was told there hasn't been any complaints on this yet and should there be any discomfort, required care and attention will be given to make the guests comfortable.

Senior Management Meeting room with dedicated kitchen
Higher up you climb the corporate ladder, more demanding you're expected to be. Senior management often expect personalized attention and exclusivity. When they meet to discuss topics that can make or break their company, it is in the interest of the company to provide them with adequate time, comfort and privacy, so that they can focus fully on the issue at hand, not about the food or time or have their attention diverted to something else by an uninvited guest.

ITC Sheraton park hotel & tower has a unique meeting room to cater to the needs of elite executives. One of their meeting room in level 2 of the tower can house about 30 people and has a dedicated kitchen. Hotel chef would use this space to prepare exclusive food for the guests. Thus guests can get personalized food & beverages, no need to step out for lunch (no distractions). It certainly pays to be on top.

Business Centre & Conference rooms
Dedicated business centre and a bunch of conference rooms cater to other corporate needs.
Most of the meeting rooms and facilities are located in Level 2. Meaning one can't drive up a car there, for events that are automobile centred. (For example, last 2 indiblogger meets in Chennai involved cars- Tata Grande and corollas) For such events, hotel will provide space in the entrance to promote the automobile

Overall Park Sheraton offers some of the finest MICE facilities in town, for almost all kinds of practical corporate events.
