InterContinental Fiji Invests into Meeting & Event Spaces and Pure Air Technology
21 January 2022 (Natadola, Fiji): InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort & Spa, located at award-winning Natadola Bay is set to lead the way for Fiji's events and conferencing experience with timely investments made into audio and visual services, air conditioning, air filtration and an electrostatic spraying unit for a safer, cleaner, and hygienic experience for events and conference delegates.
Encore Events Technologies, the in-house service provider for audio and visual services has just completed a quarter-million-dollar upgrade that is set to positively impact the overall event experience at Natadola Bay. Part of the upgrades includes 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 as well as rewiring of event spaces for better 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 handheld smart devices. This is further complemented by the twenty-four ceiling speakers enabling even distribution of premium surround sound across the space. A WiFi-controlled audio mixer has also been added that allows for wireless access to each of the room's audio controls. These upgrades have also allowed Natadola Bay to be a more suitable venue of choice for hybrid events that need digital connection with multiple venues in other parts of the World at any one given time. Guests are seamlessly able to remotely attend meetings, and share screens and content with ease supported by high-speed WiFi.
With serious concerns, in the wake of COVID, for delegates' health and well-being at events, the Resort has further invested in ActivePure Technology which enhances air filtration in the Resort's pillarless and freestanding Ballroom. ActivePure's Proactive Pathogen Defense™ creates oxidizing molecules that significantly reduce viruses, bacteria, odours, and volatile organic compounds - 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.
Ensuring that enabling the personal well-being of guests and colleagues is key, the property has also implemented using hospital-grade disinfectants and electrostatic technology. The Peroxide Multi Surface Cleaner and Disinfectant is Australia Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) listed which has been proven to kill bacteria, viruses, and fungi. Electrostatic spray (ESS) is electrically charged, allowing the appropriate sanitisers and disinfectants to wrap around and evenly coat all types of surfaces for a complete clean. As the chemical exits the electrostatic sprayer, it is given a positive electrical charge. The droplets then become attracted to all negative surfaces, covering the visible area, underside, and backside, with the sanitizing agent.
Lachlan Walker, Area General – South Pacific, InterContinental Hotels Group said: “The safety and well-being of our guests and colleagues are paramount to the True Hospitality we deliver at the Resort each day – and we understand that the priority on cleanliness is more important now than ever as consumer confidence on travel is gradually building. Globally throughout the response to the pandemic, IHG (InterContinental Hotel Group) has built on an already strong heritage of cleanliness and hygiene by implementing a variety of enhanced processes based on the guidance of health authorities and industry-leading experts and exploring where technology can make a difference. We are always exploring ways to offer guests, colleagues and visitors even further confidence in a safe, comfortable hotel experience.”
The award-winning InterContinental Fiji Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Events are designed to capture a genuine sense of place that will inspire delegates and get results. The Resorts location is enhanced by two kilometres of white sandy beach and the beautiful South Pacific waters beyond that provide the perfect backdrop for any event or conference.
