PATTAYA, Thailand -  The new Hilton Pattaya in Thailand is expected to prove very popular with meeting and event organisers seeking to hold their next conference or meeting in Thailand. The just-opened hotel features world-class meeting and conference facilities that have been specifically designed with the demanding MICE market (meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions) in mind.

The 302-room, new-build, upscale Hilton Pattaya hotel enjoys a prime location on Pattaya Beach, one of Thailand's most popular beach resort destinations. Pattaya is located on the eastern coastline of the Gulf of Thailand, just a 90-minute drive from Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi International Airport. Pattaya is one of the country's most popular beach resort towns - it is the most visited city in Thailand after Bangkok - and features a number of world-class beaches including Pattaya Beach (the main beach) and Naklua Beach. The resort town offers warm, year-round temperatures, a plethora of popular tourist attractions, a lively nightlife scene and bustling shopping areas. Pattaya also offers a wide variety of exciting water sports, such as jet skiing, windsurfing, parasailing, scuba diving and sail boating. There are also several world-class golf courses in close proximity to the hotel.

Recognizing the growing demand for quality Meetings, Incentives, Conventions and Exhibitions (MICE) facilities in popular Pattaya, the designers of the Hilton Pattaya created numerous, flexible meeting space options sure to satisfy even the most exacting of conference and event organisers. The hotel boasts a spectacular 635-square-meter ballroom and three additional meeting rooms as well as a purpose-built boardroom.

The latest technological advances have been incorporated into the hotel's conference and meeting rooms and floor to ceiling windows allow plenty of natural light and maximise the spectacular views. Whatever the scale or the purpose of an event or a meeting, from a VIP breakfast briefing for 15 guests to a conference with hundreds of delegates, Hilton Pattaya has the perfect function space.

The hotel's magnificent 635 sqm Seaboard Ballroom is expected to become a highly sought-after venue for corporate meetings, weddings and events, and features state-of-the-art audio-visual technology, including built-in LCD projectors. The décor is highly contemporary and the Ballroom also has a superb pre-function area featuring a large balcony with breathtaking, panoramic views over Pattaya Bay. The Seaboard Ballroom can accommodate 700 delegates for a reception or 600 delegates theatre-style. It can also cater for banquets with up to 400 guests.

Wireless high-speed internet is available throughout the hotel and the hotel has a fully-equipped, state-of-the-art, 24 hour Business Centre offering a comprehensive range of business services for both conference and general business needs.

Hilton Pattaya's highly trained team of chefs are skilled at creating innovative Food and Beverage concepts - using only the finest ingredients - that are guaranteed to impress meeting delegates and make events memorable.

"Our brand new conference and meeting rooms are equipped with the very latest technology and we have some of the best event staff in the country. Our stunning event rooms, including the magnificent 635sqm Seaboard Ballroom, are perfect for accommodating large numbers of delegates. Whether you want to hold a large conference or meeting, or smaller workshops, brainstorming sessions, committee meetings, product launches or any other event, Hilton Pattaya has the perfect event space for you. Holding your next conference or meeting at Hilton Pattaya guarantees a successful, productive and hassle-free event," said Harald Feurstein, general manager, Hilton Pattaya.

"All the hotel's meeting rooms have been designed to offer maximum flexibility, together with state-of-the-art technical and lighting facilities. This ensures that while even the largest or most exquisite event can be accommodated, we also offer more intimate settings for smaller occasions. Hilton Pattaya's skilled conference and events team will be on hand to meet all your needs, combining effortless hospitality with the highest professional standards and meticulous attention to detail. We also have a range of leisure amenities within the hotel, including a fitness centre, infinity pool, and numerous world-class restaurants and bars to keep conference attendees entertained, and Pattaya itself has a large number of popular tourist attractions. We are expecting a significant proportion of our business to come from the MICE market," Harald added.

Hilton Pattaya is the fifth Hilton Worldwide property in Thailand joining the Millennium Hilton Bangkok, Hilton Hua Hin Resort & Spa, Hilton Phuket Arcadia Resort & Spa and the Conrad Bangkok. The Conrad Koh Samui is scheduled to open in June 2011.
