INTRODUCING ‘DANCING WITH THE STARS’ THEMED MEETING PACKAGES
Celebrate the colours and rhythms of modern Asia with themed meetings in Bangkok and Pattaya
Dubai - 8 April 2013. Amari is home of Dancing with the Stars Thailand and following a successful first season of the TV show, properties in Bangkok and Pattaya is embracing the glitz and glamour for which the show is renowned by creating special meeting packages. As exclusive sponsor of the TV show, Amari has the connections and resources to stage a truly impressive, dance-tastic themed event for meeting planners or incentive travel organisers.
Dancing with the Stars- Themed Conference
With options of four day and three night packages, for between 100 and 600 delegates, feathers and sequins will be the theme from the moment guests arrive. The arrival experience will be a glamorous affair as guests are greeted by professional salsa dancers and presented with branded room keys. The conference will take place with plenty of ‘dancing’ touch points including mirror ball pens, a judge’s notepad and a judging panel desk for meeting presenters. All breaks and meals will follow the theme of a different style of dance with appropriate music and performances to accompany. The gala dinner will also be an important element of the themed conference module and an opportunity for delegates to truly embrace the theme through dressing up and learning to jive! Team bonding and a sense of achievement is guaranteed as conference participants can learn to dance during various meeting break outs, or even before the conference begins as a teaser activity at home. During the gala evening, teams can then showcase their new found skills to their colleagues and of course face the critique of the judging panel. Conferences can also be extended by additional days or shortened to a minimum of two nights.
Dancing with the Stars- Themed Gala Dinner
If theming the entire conference is not appropriate for the meeting topic, then the events team at Amari has developed a gala dinner option that can fit neatly in with the theme of any meeting. Sure to wow and entertain, the dinner will include dance performances from professionals and the opportunity to bring the English speaking Thai TV show hosts to act as emcees for the event. The dinner can be held in a variety of locations, including the TV studio where the TV show was filmed or the hotel’s ballroom.
Commenting on the newly launched packages, David Barrett, Executive Director of Events for Amari Watergate Bangkok and Amari Orchid Pattaya said:
“Many corporate meeting planners and Destination Management Companies are asking for new and creative themed dinners. The launch of our Dancing with the Stars themed dinner is timely, meets a clear demand in the market and is guaranteed to engage delegates whilst injecting plenty of glitz, glamour and rhythm into a conference.”
“It is really exciting for us to associate and theme a meeting package around a globally renowned brand and we can’t wait to stage our first Dancing with the Stars meeting. We have already received a number of requests for this theme, simply through our association with the show, so we are expecting both the conference and gala dinner options to be very popular.”
