Macdonald Windsor Hotel connects delegates with latest technology

Macdonald Windsor Hotel has unveiled its new meetings and events spaces following a £27,000 digital up-grade.

A total of seven meeting and event rooms underwent refurbishment as part of the project that was focused on installing innovative technology.

All meeting spaces, which can cater for between two and 120 people, now have access to state of the art Barco ClickShare devices which allow delegates to connect their phones, tablets and laptops to a presentation screen wirelessly at the click of a button. In addition to encouraging greater collaboration in meetings, as all delegates can participate more actively, the system increases meeting efficiency as less time is needed during the initial set up.

Following the upgrade, delegates will also have their own private conference Wi-Fi line ensuring meetings will not be slowed down during times of high internet usage throughout the rest of the hotel. Macdonald Windsor Hotel has also fitted large 75-inch LCD screens in three of the main meeting rooms.

Located in the heart of the historic town, just 20 minutes from Heathrow Airport, the four-star hotel is a popular choice with business travellers. It has a total of six meeting rooms as well as a larger event space which can be used for corporate functions and conferences.

Philip Lewis, general manager at Macdonald Windsor Hotel said; “Our digital makeover is intended to make meetings more efficient and engaging for our guests. By fitting the latest technology, we are ensuring delegates have access to the facilities which matter most in a modern meeting environment, including free fast Wi-Fi and top of the range audio-visual equipment.

“The ClickShare technology is simple to use and for those who are unfamiliar with the devices, our fully trained events team are on hand to assist.

“These improvements are just the first step in a wider strategy to drive our corporate offerings forward as we look to become one the leading meetings and events venue on the outskirts of London.”
