Using your own company premises for study days, seminars, business meetings, conferences, etc. is a no-no. After all, new ideas emerge more easily in a fresh environment, and here at Novotel, we’ve thought of everything!

  1. Consistent quality

One of Novotel’s great strengths is that, wherever you’re based in the world, you have the guarantee of always benefiting from the same level of quality, so you know just what to expect. Our meeting rooms are individually designed, yet identical in terms of their functionality and technological facilities (Internet, audio, video, etc.). “This year, we’ve invested in a first-class Wi-Fi network for all our hotels”, explains Jeroen van Gils, Market Leader Meetings & Events for AccorHotels in Belgium and the Netherlands. “Numerous devices can be connected to it at the same time for enhanced convenience and speed of use.”

  1. A unique and tailored reception capacity

It’s not easy finding a conference venue that can accommodate several hundred people for one or more days, and where the staff take care of everything, from breakfast through to bedtime. At Novotel, all logistics during the event are managed by an expert who remains contactable at all times. “Our hotels are genuine conference centres,” Jeroen van Gils asserts. “We can organise meals, meetings and stays for several hundred people. Take the Novotel Amsterdam City, for instance, which offers all this under the same roof for up to 500 persons. That’s unrivalled in the Netherlands!”

  1. Constant care for the environment

Maximised use of natural light, eco-friendly and recyclable materials, geothermal energy, natural ventilation… Novotel’s establishments chime with the commitment of companies to guaranteeing the planet’s future. “We aim to provide solutions that enable meetings to be held while respecting our Planet 21 sustainability programme, continues Jeroen Gils.  We pay great attention to the sorting of waste, for example. Wherever possible, we avoid the use of packaging. The Novotel Amsterdam Schiphol Airport, which opens its doors this December, is our flagship branch in this regard.”
