Chongqing Changan Ford Mazda Automobile Company administrative specialist Liu Hong says the company will hold many meetings each year, from board meetings and training seminars for 50 to 100 people, to supplier assemblies, distributor assemblies, and new product launches with 350 to 400 people.
One of Liu's tasks is to choose a proper venue for these meetings. Liu said the location is her first consideration, and hotels near the company would be a preferred choice. Liu will also check the size and capacity of a venue to see if it can meet the needs of the company's meetings. Price is another important factor to Liu.
Grand Metropark Hotel Chongqing is the nearest five-star hotel to the company. It has rich experience of holding various meetings. The hotel has brand new facilities and a good environment; the human and personalized service has greatly impressed Liu. In December 2010, Changan Ford held its annual board meeting in the ballroom on B2 of Grand Metropark Hotel Chongqing. All participants were high-level management of the Changan Group. The company paid much attention to this meeting and revised the menu several times. The hotel sales people were very patient, communicating with the F&B department of the hotel to change the menu again and again. Finally the hotel has presented a perfect meal at half of the original price for each table. The quality service of the hotel is the main reason for the long-term cooperation between the company and Grand Metropark Hotel Chongqing. Other hotels the company has chosen include InterContinental Chongqing and JW Marriott Chongqing.
Liu has spoke about Chongqing's tourism resources to China Hospitality News. Nanshan Mountain in spring is a good place to enjoy the beauty of nature, and Jiefangbei is the place for shopping. If there is enough time, guests can go to see the Dazu Rock Carvings. Famous Chongqing food in Nanbin Road will make guests linger on there.
