Park MGM and Cisco are partnering in Las Vegas to provide a new intuitive type of meeting experience at the hotel’s 650sqm Ideation Studio.
A new member of elite meetings association IACC, Park MGM is the world’s first hotel to offer groups Cisco Webex™ Boards and Cisco Webex Teams, which offer a real and virtual meeting space for collaborating, video calling, whiteboarding and sharing notes, files and presentations.
Ideation Studio’s ‘smart’ conference space is able to recognise each delegate’s device as they enter their designated room, regardless of the type or make of device. No wires or passcodes are required in this secure meeting space. The intuitive system also has the ability to capture the team’s meeting notes and make them and all meeting materials easily accessible. Remote joiners to the meeting are easy to accommodate, the Ideation Studio team adds.
The strategy is also based on behavioural science and how people interact with the environment. Chair and table height, lighting, flooring and room configurations have been selected to enhance engagement and the flow of ideas. There are four distinct layouts and 10 rooms for groups of six up to 24.
IACC CEO Mark Cooper says: “The designs of Park MGM’s Ideation Studio have taken into consideration many of the trends and preferences from meeting planners that IACC has identified through its research. The Park MGM leadership team has poured so much dedication and passion into developing a haven for small meetings and we look forward to bringing our own events to these inspiring meeting spaces in the future.”
The Ideation Studio opening marks the completion of The Meeting Center at Park MGM where a 7,153sqm conference area features a ballroom, 29 meeting rooms and a large outdoor terrace, as well as the Madison Meeting Center – also IACC certified and Las Vegas’ first executive meeting centre including a Daily Meeting Package (DMP).
