In the second part of the Hanoi Destination Guide we talk about the Conference & Hotel venues available to the conference booker…
Hanoi offers many venues for your conference needs. The Vietnam National Convention Centre, the largest site in Vietnam, encompasses 64 hectares and a heliport! However, there is no hotel at this venue therefore accommodation elsewhere will need to be found. As well as this, there is the 5 star JW Marriott Hotel Hanoi which boasts one of the largest meeting venues in the region housing 17 event rooms, 16 breakout rooms and with various local attractions to explore it is ideal for the business meetings, conference and incentive travel industry. The leading conference venue in Hanoi, The Sheraton, offers 10 versatile spaces and is also worth considering for your conference needs. Their two largest rooms, Song Hong and Song Da Grand Ballrooms, offer a vast space for any event need as well as being able to be divided into smaller event spaces to fit with your requirements. The hotel also offers various meeting rooms and access to outdoor terraces offering an impressive background for any event. It is worth mentioning that De Souza Associates was involved with a large medical conference in Hanoi in 2012, which took place at The Melia Hanoi. This luxury hotel stands a short distance from many key districts and houses the largest meeting space in Hanoi along with state of the art facilities and conference technologies.
Accommodation in Hanoi is abundant to choose from offering a vast array of four and five star hotels. With all these options you can decide if you want to be located near where your meetings are taking place or closer to local culture or incentive trip destinations.
