An airport hotel has unveiled plans for the brand new £1.3 million upgrade to its conference and events centre.
The investment at Hilton London Heathrow Airport Terminal 4 will transform the 2,509 square foot space into a meetings centre.
Designed by US-based Manser Associates, who were responsible for the hotel’s original build 25 years ago, the conference centre upgrade is the second part of a four-phase renovation project that will culminate with the first floor atrium rebuild planned for 2017.
The centre will be equipped with audio and visual equipment – including video conferencing – and guests can choose from 15 meeting rooms with capacity for up to 300 visitors.
The conference and events centre will feature a colour palette of black, white and splashes of gold, chosen to promote creative thinking. The interior design plans follow the hotel’s long-standing ethos of creating a feeling of space and relaxation – separating the inside from the busy outside world.
Jurgen Sutherland, area general manager, Hilton London Heathrow Airport Terminal 4, said: “It is of utmost importance to offer the best business centre facilities to those travelling to and from London. The hotel was a design leader when it was first built, and the current refurbishment design reflects the original ground-breaking architectural standards. Heathrow Airport sees a large number of travellers passing through on a daily basis, and the hotel is perfectly placed to provide both business and leisure travellers alike with fantastic facilities that they need.”
