Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Wednesday, 23 June 2010

Starwood Hotels & Resorts recently unveiled its first in-hotel Cisco TelePresence meeting suites with a virtual, interactive meeting spanning across two continents.

 The W Chicago City Center and Sheraton on the Park Sydney are the first in Starwoods global portfolio to introduce the new meeting facilities, showcasing the state-of-the-art Cisco TelePresence technology.

In June of 2009, Starwood announced a partnership with Tata Communications and plans to build Cisco TelePresence rooms in at least 10 properties worldwide.

In addition to the W Chicago and Sheraton on the Park Sydney, inaugurated as part of this partnership with Tata Communications, two more Cisco TelePresence meeting suites will open in Starwood hotels in North America, Hong Kong and Europe.

Reservations for these telepresence rooms can be made instantly using the Tata Communications online portal, with a convenient payment capability using all major credit cards.

More businesses are recognizing the value of being able to rent Cisco TelePresence facilities by the hour, either to extend their existing deployment to further locations or to experience Cisco TelePresence for the first time. Having meeting facilities in a comfortable setting with access to business services at times that fit individuals schedule can help to take some of the grind out of traveling. The value of public suites facilities increases exponentially as more rooms from more providers come on stream, said Mark Weidick, VP/GM for Ciscos TelePresence Exchange Business Unit.

Cisco TelePresence provides high definition, conferencing facilities with superior audio, video and environmental qualities allowing participants to meet their colleagues, customers and business partners across a virtual table. The public facility offers users who do not have telepresence rooms within their company, access to this cutting-edge technology for a per hour rental rate.
