New MICE Tools From Karisma Hotels & Resorts




karisma

Karisma Hotels & Resorts, which owns and manages properties in Latin America, the Caribbean and Europe, has announced a lineup of new tools and programs for groups and meeting planners. New tools include fact sheets, banquet kit menu options, themed group events and the Pick Your Perks incentive.

With a separate fact sheet per property, the company’s new MICE fact sheets are easy to read and include details on the resort, including the number of suites, restaurants, bars, activity options. Most importantly, the fact sheets include meeting space details including size, max capacity, meeting space floorplans and the resorts’ location distance from the airport. MICE customers and travel agents who sell MICE can now easily view, print and save these fact sheets online to determine the best fit for their group.

To accompany the MICE fact sheets, meeting planners now have access to a new digital banquet kit. With preset menu packages for each meal of the day, meeting planners and customers can easily select the best menu for their groups from 39 pages. Meal packages include American, Mexican or International breakfast options and BBQ, Petite Gourmet, Mediterranean, International, Italian and Mexican options for lunch and dinner. Guests may also opt to design their own food menus.

Karisma Hotels & Resorts has also created themed events for groups to opt in for an additional cost. Groups have the option to choose from True Mexico: A Team Building Experience or Gourmet Inclusive Fiesta Nights. Tailored for groups who enjoy nature, True Mexico: A Team Building Experience takes place in Bonanza Ranch – an eco-park with a jungle, cenote, and stables with horses, goats, peacocks, pigs and donkeys. Attendees can participate in team building activities while interacting with colleagues or group members and experience healthy competition in a natural environment. Led by a Bonanza Ranch ambassador, True Mexico: A Team Building Experience, consists of pre-programed activities, including Mexican Obstacles, Tug of War, Human Taco, Saddle Up a Horse and more. Groups will be divided into teams, where all teams must complete a series of challenges, both physical and mental. Gourmet Inclusive Fiesta Nights, another option for groups, includes six different themed party packages ranging from Circus Royale to Route 66. Party packages include décor, food & beverage, table setup, dance floor, AV system, CJ and more.

Finally, the hotel collection has launched the Pick Your Perks program based on the total nights contracted. This promotion is valid from now until December 15, 2018. MICE groups can now enjoy a number of perks including complimentary rooms, upgrades, private transfers, private VIP check in, complimentary reception, discounts on spa services or complimentary themed group events. The more rooms planners book, the more perks they get. For every 20-49 room nights booked, customers can choose one perk; 50-100 room nights, groups can pick two perks; when booking 101-250 room nights, they can pick up to three; and for booking more than 251 room nights, MICE groups can pick three perks and the meeting planner receives a free three-night stay to come back to any Karisma property to enjoy.
