Sao Paulo, Brazil (PRWEB) June 07, 2011
The Renaissance Sao Paulo Hotel has launched the Virtual Meetings by Marriott, which combines high-resolution image and audio in real time. The new technology, present in more than 60 companies and 12 Marriott international hotels, now comes to this Sao Paulo hotel and connects Brazil to the world. Users are able to interact as if they were all gathered in one conference table, even if they’re continents away. The Renaissance Sao Paulo Hotel hopes that this new technology will help reduce the cost of Sao Paulo business travel. The project was developed in partnership with Cisco TelePresence, who created the equipment, and with AT&T, which provides the communication infrastructure.
TelePresence is a growing technology that allows groups of people to hold meetings in several locations around the world in real time and size. Ideal for follow-up meetings, training, recruitment and interviews, brainstorming sessions and investor meetings, the Virtual Meetings by Marriott offer unique advantages such as saving time and money on travel, security and reliability, innovation in business and even collaboration with the environment, as reduced travel lowers the amount of emissions.
Virtual Meetings by Marriott at this hotel in Sao Paulo is part of a major technology project involving the main hotel chains in the world. The Marriott Brand has over 3,000 properties and, in this first phase of the project, 25 rooms will be adapted to this technology. The Renaissance Sao Paulo Brazil Hotel is the thirteenth property to receive the technology, which is exclusive to Marriott International. By positioning itself as a leading provider of high-definition meetings transmission, this Sao Paulo Business hotel helps customers conduct business meetings around the world. Conferences can be executed at more than 500 studios among the Marriott hotels to any private company throughout the world that uses the AT&T and Cisco technology.
In a secure environment, Virtual Meetings by Marriott can provide the feeling of a person being present in the same place with no distortion of images and sounds or delays. Reservations can be made through the site http://www.VirtualMeetingsbyMarriott.com.
