THE five-star Crowne Plaza Mutiara Kuala Lumpur has expanded its meetings facilities by adding 12 more function rooms to its Mezzanine Level, bringing the total to 28.
The additional function rooms target the meetings market for groups as small as 10 to 120 people. They will also serve as break-out rooms for larger conferences taking place at the ballroom.
The hotel's general manager, Mr Philip Riley, said that the refurbishment exercise would fill a gap in the meetings and conventions space for organisations planning small group meetings as part of their overall conference agenda.
Last year, the hotel closed at 80.4 per cent room occupancy, of which the MICE market made up 40 per cent of the business. This year, the hotel is targeting a business mix of 60 per cent MICE and 40 per cent FITs.
