InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort & Spa named Fiji's Best MICE Hotel
17th November 2022 (Natadola, Fiji): The World MICE Awards, a global initiative to recognise and reward excellence in the MICE industry, has announced InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort & Spa as "Fiji's Best MICE Hotel 2022" at the star-studded Gala Ceremony in Amman, Jordan held last month. The World MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Exhibitions) Awards recognise excellence in MICE tourism and the annual awards programme aims to foster growth, innovations and best practice on a global scale.
Award-winning InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort & Spa, which features outstanding conferencing facilities and is located on one of Fiji’s best beaches, was nominated among four leading MICE properties in the country. The voting process ran for 12 weeks, from 1st June 2022 - 26th August 2022, during which the MICE community, industry experts, and consumers were invited to vote online for their preferred resort.
Lachlan Walker, Area General – South Pacific, InterContinental Hotels Group, said: “It is an honour for our flagship property, InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort & Spa, to be recognised by the global voting audience as the leaders of Meetings & Events in Fiji and to be a part of a community of premium MICE hotels worldwide. We are proud of the high standards we have set to deliver the best MICE experiences for our local and international delegates. I want to thank the senior leadership team, our colleagues, local suppliers, and vendors for achieving the outstanding service delivery that brings to life IHG’s vision of True Hospitality for all.”
Hidden away from the main resort, InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort & Spa’s Watercourt Conference Centre is the hub of dedicated meeting spaces, offering maximum privacy for events whilst conveniently located close to key resort spaces. The resort features eleven flexible and versatile conference and meeting rooms, all featuring natural lighting and built-in audio-visual. The main features are a pillar-less ballroom seating up to six hundred guests, three separate one hundred and twenty-five delegate theatre-style meeting rooms (each of which is dividable into two rooms), and plenty of pre-function space for breaks, displays or trade exhibitions.
The resort earlier this year introduced ActivePure technology, which is now in place & proven to reduce over 99.9% of the virus that causes COVID-19, both on surfaces and in the air. The biodefense air purification system has been used in NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) spaceships and space stations for several years and has received the prestigious award of being inducted into the Space Hall of Fame in 2017 and is one of only 75 technologies to receive such an honour in 30 years.
Additionally, Encore Events Technologies, the in-house service provider for audio and visual services, has just completed a quarter-million-dollar upgrade set to impact the overall event experience at Natadola Bay positively. The enhancements include new wider 4K projectors and drop-down screens in its meeting rooms that enable a much larger viewing surface, upgraded 75-inch TV screens, digital concierge systems for meeting facilitators and event planners, and rewiring event spaces for a premium audio experience. Together with this, state of an art Video over IP (VoIP) system has been installed to distribute vision throughout the space and installed wireless access points allow vision routing through smart handheld devices.
The World MICE Awards™ aims to drive up standards within the MICE industry by rewarding the organisations that are leaders in their field. It was developed in reaction to overwhelming demand from the MICE sector for a fair and transparent; programme with a mission to serve as the definitive benchmark of excellence and help foster a new era of growth, innovations and best practice on a global scale. World MICE Awards™ is the sister event of World Travel Awards™, launched in 1994 to celebrate excellence in travel and tourism.
