Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas has introduced a meeting break that pairs BlackBerry care and service with a blackberry-themed menu.
During the 30-minute BlackBerry breaks, attendees leave their PDAs with a trained “Blackberry Valet,” who will clean and recharge the gadgets as well as offer advice, answer technical questions and troubleshoot problem areas. At break’s end, attendees retrieve their BlackBerrys with a claim ticket.
Breaks can also include a charging station with multiple docking outlets and an Internet kiosk for laptop web surfing. Planners can work with the hotel’s catering managers to design a BlackBerry break based on their group’s needs.
Four Seasons executive chef Michael Goodman’s accompanying menu features ginger duck breast with blackberry compote and desserts such as blackberry strudel and blackberry poundcake.
