Omni Hotels & Resorts has introduced a new program—Ready, Set, Go Hybrid with Omni—that brings a new level of production quality and support to its customers’ presentations, small meetings and/or full-scale hybrid events.
Intended to simplify the process for its meeting planner clients, Omni used direct customer feedback to design the program’s options, each of which integrates production elements such as audio, cameras, lighting and the latest technology components with professional support solutions
“As we’ve heard from our clients, hybrid is here to stay for a while, and they are facing new challenges and changes as they plan upcoming events for both in-person and virtual attendees,” said Dan Surette, chief sales officer at Omni Hotels & Resorts. “The Ready, Set, Go Hybrid with Omni options are specifically designed to help our clients navigate these new challenges with confidence and ease. We’ve always been proud of our team’s ability to create, customize and execute memorable events, and these options allows us to continue to deliver excellent service in this new virtual and hybrid meeting landscape.”
Omni is partnering with its event production partner, Encore, to provide these flexible, cost-effective solutions. Highlights from the three Ready, Set, Go Hybrid with Omni options, all of which integrate Omni’s Safe & Clean and MeetSAFE™ from Encore guidelines for comfortable, safe, full-service environments, are:
Omni Virtual Studio: Intended for individuals or small groups looking to transition from a home or office environment with distractions, a lack of technical support or subpar bandwidth for presentation stability. Omni Virtual Studio provides a professional environment where the user can be confident and demonstrate their best for important stakeholders.
Omni Hybrid Small Meeting: Allows up to 15 in-person attendees with flexibility to scale as needed, making this option perfect for collaborative discussions, presenter-focused meetings and those who require a more robust solution versus a simple virtual call. Features multiple camera displays and sound reinforcements to enhance the in-room and remote experience to create a shared environment catered toward improving participant engagement.
Omni Hybrid Your Way: Best suited for groups larger than 15 and those who have an event that requires a more complex dynamic setup with multiple cameras, displays and sound reinforcements to enhance both the in-room and remote experience. The Omni Hybrid Your Way works well for those who need to accomplish more extensive business goals including interactive elements such as gamification, voting or connecting audiences and presenters across multiple Omni venues and locations.
“Not only are these solutions cost-effective and simple, Omni has special meeting offers that include a discount for Hybrid packages to further assist our clients as they return to planning future events,” said Surette.
