For meetings venues, upgrading is no longer a matter of luxury, it's a matter of survival. No venue can compete with outdated rooms and yesterday's amenities. And outdated technology is out of the question. Planners won't even consider a venue with antiquated connectivity as ultra-connected attendees demand more technology than ever.

Planners and their groups insist on more than just a place to meet. With all the competition, it's the venues that upgrade, update, refurbish, rewire and rethink their guestrooms, meetings venues and amenities that are going to win the business.

Interior upgrades
One example of a hotel that refuses to rest on its laurels in Rosen Centre in Orlando. Rosen Centre has upgraded 1,024 guestrooms to double queens and has increased king guestrooms by 24. All have been enhanced with contemporary platform bedding, accentuated with plush upholstered panels around the perimeter. New Posturepedic pillowtop mattresses have been customized with extra quilting.

With renovations already underway and scheduled to be completed by year's end, Rosen Centre's guestrooms are being updated to reflect the ultimate in spa-like calm and serenity. The walls, painted a deep rich teal, provide a clean backdrop to beds' headboards, which feature a gray-blue ombre finish. Soft touches of gray, crisp white and teal add to the contemporary feel.

"We designed our new guestrooms to reflect the balance between form and function that is so important to our guests. Integrating the necessary technology in a calming, comfortable environment strikes that balance," said Todd Frappier, Director of Sales & Marketing for Rosen Centre. 



Tackling tech 
Rosen Centre has also upgraded its tech offerings. Business travelers can charge all their devices at once on the multi-outlet connectivity bar located below a new wall-mounted 50" flat screen TV. The connectivity bar also contains one ethernet and two USB ports. Additional outlets and USB ports are located on the desk lamps, headboard panels and nightstand lamps, providing plenty of recharging and connectivity options for everyone. The king rooms will also feature an elegant chaise with a c-table, perfect for guests that want to relax and work on their laptops. The hotel offers free Wi-Fi in the guestrooms and public areas, and there's never a resort fee.
