Accor, the largest hotel operator in the Pacific, has launched ALL CONNECT, a hybrid meetings concept supported by a range of technology partners including Microsoft Teams, Events Air, Encore and AV Dynamics, at many of Accor’s 380+ hotels, resorts and apartments across Australia, New Zealand and Fiji.

By combining the brands and service culture of Accor with the powerful meetings and collaboration technology of our partners, ALL CONNECT enables seamless hybrid meetings at Accor properties across all brands, from economy to luxury, allowing companies and event organisers to combine physical in-hotel meetings with virtual interactions across multiple locations simultaneously.

Accor Pacific CEO, Sarah Derry, said: “Accor is committed to delivering exceptional meetings and events experiences through access to the best technological innovations. The future of work is hybrid, and the services and experiences we offer our guests reflect this. ALL CONNECT is an important tool for our guests, offering them the opportunity to organise safe, qualitative and seamless hybrid meetings. We are delighted to partner with Microsoft Teams, Events Air, Encore and AV Dynamics – leaders in videoconferencing solutions – on this new offering now available at many of our hotels across the Pacific region.”

ALL CONNECT meetings take place on a range of platforms, including Microsoft Teams, where attendees connect and engage virtually. People can easily present content and see virtual participants as if they were in the same room. With this solution, Accor guests and their meeting attendees can come together through professional, inclusive meeting experiences, from wherever they are.

In-person event attendees can also expect the highest sanitary and safety measures as part of Accor’s ALLSafe expert vetted protocol, co-developed with Bureau Veritas - a French company that provides industry-leading testing, inspection and certification services for brands.

ALL CONNECT is integrated with Accor’s ALL - Accor Live Limitless Meeting Planner loyalty program, allowing members to earn Reward points for each meeting booked. Members can then use them to part pay their next meeting or benefit from unforgettable experiences: catering, sport, overnight stays, wellness, entertainment and more.

ALL Meeting Planner members will earn triple (3X) Reward points on eligible events held and paid for by 31 December 2022. Members simply need to register and book by 31 May 2022 at participating hotels in Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and the Ala Moana Hotel Honolulu.

Accor hotels across the Pacific offer a range of solutions to meet the needs of their clients, working with the trusted suppliers of Microsoft Teams, Events Air, Encore and AV Dynamics.
