Four Points Sheraton Conference Center One phone call arranges your entire event
For an off-site meeting, hospitality is vital. Large rooms, comfortable chairs, and a dependable internet connection are a good start. Hosts also want to make sure there’s plenty of coffee, a good meal, and a relaxed yet productive environment. Not all companies have a dedicated event planner, though, and managers are already tapped out looking after their teams.
“This is where Four Points by Sheraton Norwood steps in,” says Jaime Whynot, Director of Conference and Room Sales. “With one phone call, we arrange it all.”
The Norwood Conference Center at the Four Points by Sheraton offers a venue for every kind of event. “You name it,” says Whynot. “Board meetings, job fairs, trainings, expos—we handle them all.”
With many companies moving to remote work, some companies have even begun hosting events just to let the employees get to know one another in person. “There’s a lot of excitement when co-workers meet face-to-face for the first time,” says Whynot. “It’s a pleasure to host these events.”
Four Points by Sheraton Norwood has event-planning down to a science. The Norwood Conference Center offers all-inclusive full or half-day meeting packages. They have created in effect a one-stop shopping experience: lunch, snacks, meeting space, internet connectivity, and audiovisual equipment, all bundled up in one price per person.
Whynot says, “It takes a single twenty-minute phone call to determine exactly what an event is going to need. Once we know who’s coming, the rest of the details are on our shoulders. The only thing our guests need to provide is their programming.”
After that, it’s a matter of picking a date and signing a contract. “And we’re flexible,” Whynot says. “Our team is resourceful enough to accommodate large events on what seems like impossibly short notice.”
Four Points by Sheraton Norwood understands the stresses of running a conference or planning a large-scale event. “We provide the support your organization needs so you can pay attention to your attendees,” says Whynot.
Event-goers will arrive to find the room already set up with ceiling-mounted projectors, microphones, easels, whiteboards, and pen and paper. (Yes, even in 2022.) Guests can access free Wi-Fi, and there’s also a hardwired internet line for the event moderator to guarantee their internet runs without interruption.
Every event starts with snacks. “We’ll welcome your guests with coffee and tea, as well as baked goods, yogurt, granola, and bagels in the lounge outside the conference rooms. Our lounge areas are continually refreshed all day.” The Four Points by Sheraton Norwood chefs are experts in accommodating dietary restrictions and can easily handle vegetarian or vegan meals, gluten-free guests, or even more complicated requirements. “A typical lunch might be two salads, two hot entrée items, a vegetable, a soup, a chef-attended station, and a dessert.”
Dinner options are available as well. “Our guests are fed all day,” says Whynot. “I’ve heard managers talk about our conference center as though we’re a cruise ship.”
The Norwood Conference Center has over forty-thousand square feet at their disposal, from rooms designed for five people up to the Tiffany Ballroom that is comfortable for five hundred, with room for forty-five exhibit tables.
Guests have access to an outdoor pavilion, the indoor lounge areas, and complementary parking. Overnight guests for multi-day events can stay right on the Four Points by Sheraton property. They can also avail themselves of the award-winning One Bistro, featuring farm-to-table meals highlighting the best of local produce. One Bistro is a great introduction to Massachusetts for out-of-town visitors, and also has a strong local following.
“While events can be stressful, our whole focus is to make it easy,” says Whynot. “In the post-pandemic world, we love to see people coming together again.”
