Besides a daily theatre-style meeting room, the well-priced “Meet for Free” delegate package also includes single accommodation with American buffet breakfast, free in-room Internet, a buffet lunch with two soft drinks, and two coffee breaks. On top of this, groups of 25 paying guests receive one free standard room and one upgrade to an executive floor, while the meeting organizer is supplied with a pre-programmed mobile phone and free local calls, use of an office for private meetings, and a complimentary upgrade to a special “Five Senses” room.

“This new concept, which we successfully piloted and perfected at our five-star Corinthia Hotel Lisbon earlier this year, provides meeting and event planners with the best value for money package possible, while optimizing on quality and content,” commented Glenn Carroll, senior vice president for sales and marketing for CHI Hotels & Resorts, the luxury brand’s operating company. “The initiative has been extremely well received in test and, while acknowledging that there is now a worldwide feeling of economic recovery, we feel there is still a need to support our customers in this very important sector of our business,” concluded Glenn Carroll.

The “Meet for Free” offer is directly accessible at and is backed by Corinthia’s award-winning program “Events at Corinthia.” This value-added product comprises a variety of facilities and services that assist organizers to plan and hold successful and stress-free events, including a dedicated personal assistant assigned to every conference organizer.
