Planning the GeoTech Training Conference Prepared for. Denny Collins General Manager Prepared by. Monica Dietrich GeoTech is in need of finding facility for its training conference. Abby Event Resources is full service event planning company. We will take care of the booking of all your accommodations from guest rooms to conference rooms to the grand convention hall. We will coordinate all your catering and beverage needs. We will book and contract your keynote speakers and any entertainment you desire. We will also supply and set up state of the art audio visual equipment for both your presentation and entertainment needs. Proposal Number. 843 4493 Abby Event Resources has researched the following facilities to ensure that GeoTech Environmental Engineering has the best choice of locations for its training conference. All the listed facilities have available rooms in large blocks for at least one weekend in January. All offer discount rate for guest rooms. Salt Lake City Ramada Airport Amelia Earhart Dr I 80 Exit Newly renovated with ample meeting space and brightly lit conference rooms. Main Convention Hall small compared to the other hotels. Easy access for travelers and ample parking. Easy access for loading and unloading equipment; caterers prefer this location. The Ramadas come in at the average price of $90.00 discounted rate per double guest room per night. Facility fees are also average and are listed on the cost summary.
Salt Lake City Ramada Downtown 2455 S. State Street I 15 & 80 at State Street Meeting spaces have higher ceilings and better visibility for attendees and Main Convention Hall is larger than the Airport Ramada. Also has ample parking and easy access. Very basic but well maintained facilities in keeping with its star designation. Salt Lake City Hilton 255 South West Temple By far the nicest of the conference facilities. This hotel does have fewer guest rooms available so would need to be booked very quickly. The location is not as easy to access as the Ramadas. There is ample parking. At discounted double occupancy guest rate of $129.00 per night this is the most expensive hotel but it does have the best amenities. Shilo Inn 206 South West Temple
The largest of the conference facilities and the hotel with the largest block of guest rooms available. About the same access and parking as the Hilton. Guest rooms are dated as are most of the conference rooms but the Main Convention Hall is well laid out with easy access for the caterers. The average price per room is comparable to the Ramadas but the facilities fees come in at about $600.00 less making it the least expensive option. The following is the preliminary schedule of events which can easily accommodate any of our choices listed on our comparison chart. Abby Event Resources will be on hand during the entire event and will be solely responsible for set up registration coordination of meals and catering delivery of audio visual equipment and clean up.
