Beautiful Banquet Rooms Drive Sales

Banquet rooms must always look beautiful, yet still be able to withstand the rigors of exceptionally heavy use. An event planner will never select a banquet room as a meeting location if it looks worn out. “Meeting planners select the hotel,to a large extent, for its ability to provide complete meeting facilities, which, in turn, sells large blocks of guest rooms,” says Rutes, Penner and Adams in Hotel Design Planning and Development.
