Pullman is set to change the way its boardrooms look with the unveiling of a new ‘business playground’ concept under its motto of ‘work hard, play hard’.
In conjunction with designer Mathieu Lehanneur, the new-look ‘business playground’ rooms combine performance and pleasure with a fresh take on the traditional aspects of a meeting: a meeting table designed like a poker table, a private area for informal conversations or breaks, and a cabinet of curiosities.
Pullman says the features “are designed to stimulate creativity and reinvent international hospitality codes”.
Pullman London St Pancras is premiering the concept before it is gradually rolled out across the network in 2014.
“Our business guests travel a lot,” said Accor’s Senior Vice President of Pullman Global Marketing, Xavier Louyot.
“Hotel guestrooms and meeting rooms are part of their daily routine. Quality of service and efficient facilities are intrinsic to all upscale international hotels. So, it’s the experience that makes the difference. It takes inspiration for big ideas to make the leap forward.
“With Business Playground we aim to create unforgettable meetings for our guests, so that their gatherings in our establishments in London, Paris, or elsewhere are unlike any others,” Louyot said.
Over 30,000 events are held in Pullman hotels globally each year.
