Put the “WOW!” in Your Next Meeting

Exciting things are happening outside our doors. Across Surrey’s City Centre, our enterprising neighbours are working hard to launch new businesses, design state-of-the-art infrastructure, manage growth and land the deals that take high-tech innovations to the marketplace. A consistent part of these impressive projects is the collaboration and the relationship-building that go into pulling them off. That’s where we can help, by providing the most unique meeting space south of the Fraser River.

Perfect for offsite pitches and break-out groups, cocktail parties or presentations, the gorgeous, natural light-filled Plaza meeting rooms that overlook the cosmopolitan Civic Hotel lobby and Civic Plaza will definitely make a positive impression on guests. Convening up to forty people, the high-tech Plaza meeting rooms instantly add the glam or “WOW!” factor that can boost corporate brands and make a critical difference to the outcome of business relationships and events.

How can you leverage the benefits of meeting in a Plaza room? The up-front feature is the beautiful light, especially important as the dark outside grows in the approach to winter. The benefits of natural light are plentiful and well-established. It helps people feel more attentive and fresher than artificial light and plays a role in the release of feel-good hormones like serotonin and dopamine, among other things. Research also shows that people simply feel better in environments with natural elements like sunlight.

Another brand-boosting feature is the advanced IT infrastructure that comes with being a new-build. Seamless hi-speed, gigabit Wi-Fi is offered throughout the building, without the irritating internet dead zones found in some older hotels. “Clients ask if they can work remotely and I say yes, here’s the password, just log in anytime,” says Rob Martin, Catering Sales Manager at Civic Hotel. “People aren’t expecting it to be as easy as it is, especially since it’s all complimentary.”

With all that natural light pouring into the meeting rooms, you needn’t depend on coffee to keep your guests awake. Even so, our in-house professional catering team will happily show up at break time with delicious snacks and hot beverages. They’re pleased to offer gluten-free and vegetarian options, along with seasonal and locally sourced fruits and produce. They will also provide colourful and sophisticated plated dinners or buffets that please your guests and leave them ready for the next round of discussions.

So you do the hard work prior to the meeting and let us take it from there. For more information about the Plaza meeting rooms and other conference and meetings spaces or our catering service, visit us online or contact Rob Martin and the Civic Hotel’s sales team at 1-855-255-8933 or
